Final Project Approval for Two New Schools in New Westminster!

After much anticipation, patience and hard work, we are excited to be able to share the news... New Westminster is getting two new schools.

The provincial government issued a press release today announcing funding of $30M for a new elementary and middle school.

The new elementary school will be constructed on the site of the former St. Mary's Hospital on Royal Avenue in New Westminster. Construction of the school is scheduled to begin this fall, and it is expected to open in early 2014.

The new West Side Middle school will be constructed at the current site of John Robson Elementary school on Eighth Street in New Westminster. Construction of the new middle school will begin in the fall/winter of 2013-14 and it is expected to open in fall 2015.
