Construction Phase Begins!

We have reached the next critical stage in the development of our new school!

The Prairie Spirit Board has recommended awarding the tender for the Warman school project to Wright Construction. The Ministry must also now approve the tender submission before the construction company can start to develop a construction schedule.

The school facility is expected to be completed for the 2013/14 school year.

The new school is projected to open with over 700 students.  At this point the planning is for a grade 4-8 school however, the grades at the school will be finalized once the project is nearing completion.

In addition, starting in January, 2012, the community will be asked to offer suggestions for the name of the new school.

The new school will be part of a joint-use facility with the Warman Recreation Complex, currently under construction in the Town’s north end. The new school will have access to the gym facilities in the sports complex as part of a joint-use agreement already signed between the Town and the school division. The community will have access to the theatre and library which will be part of the school.

The following drawings will give you an idea what the school will look like.
