The $14.6 million dollar project was won by PCL Construction Management Inc. in late August and it is expected that it could be completed by early 2012. Construction was originally slated to begin in the fall of 2009 but the Ministry of Educationforced a scaling back of the size of the new school causing delays.
When completed, the new catholic system school will provide instruction to children in kindergarten through grade 8. The school is expected to feature an indoor track for walking and running, exercise facilities, a pediatric wellness clinic and community gathering spots. It’s part of the Pleasant Hill revitalization project.
The Ministry of Education will fund the majority of the project. Corporate donations include $500,000 from the PotashCorp for the walking track and $500,000 from Cameco Corp. for the pediatric clinic.
