According to a story in today’s Star Phoenix a public elementary school was originally planned to start construction in April of 2010 with completion and opening slated for the fall of 2011. Originally, the public school board planned to build a joint facility with a City of Saskatoon recreational centre. The Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schoolshas decided that they would like their school to be part of the same complex. A report to the public school board says delays could push completion beyond January 2013 while construction costs escalate at a projected $600,000 to $750,000 per year.
Public school students living in Willowgrove are currently taken by bus to Forest Grove School, while students in the catholic system are driven to Saint Volodymyr School.

Update: From the October 20, 2009 Star Phoenix- Willowgrove school project waits for government funding.
