UPDATE: Naming of the new Warman School, Sod Turning Celebration and Construction Progress

Despite our best efforts, we were unable to schedule a date for the school celebration that would work for the many stakeholders involved in the project. We are still planning to celebrate this exciting school project sometime this fall. We are working with the Ministry of Education to find a date that will suit both the Minister and our MLA for this area. We will reveal the name for the new school at that time.

The building project is progressing despite the poor weather in June. The timeline for the completion of the project continues to be forecast as September 2013.

Have a great summer! Look for additional updates in early September.

Naming Warman’s New School

Warman students, staff and community members are invited to submit a name that reflects the local community and the nature of this new school and may include rationale for their name submission.

Submission forms will be available at Warman High School, Warman Elementary School, Division Office in Warman, and on the school division website at www.spiritsd.ca. Entries can be delivered to the schools in Warman, to Division Office (121 Klassen Street East), by fax (931-8221) or email (info@spiritsd.ca).

A local committee will review the submissions and provide a select number of entries for the Board of Education to consider. The winning submission (which may be a single entry or a composite of entries) will be recognized at the time of the school’s sod-turning ceremony.

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.
