The Thames Valley District school board has received the green light from the province to build a new school in southeast London, the second new city school for the board announced since late fall.
The school, to be located at 2541 Meadowgate Blvd. in Summerside, will have capacity for 556 students and will include an additional 88 child care spaces and five child care rooms.
“Construction of the new southeast London public school further demonstrates our government’s historic investment in Ontario’s schools and our overall commitment to supporting our students and families,” Ontario’s Education Minister Stephen Lecce said.
“From modernizing our curriculum to revitalizing our classrooms and their facilities, we are investing in our students and giving them every tool to achieve their full potential.”
