Ontario has approved a new school building to help create better learning environments for students at St. Marguerite D'Youville Catholic School in Whitby.
The Minister of Education, was joined by the MPP for Whitby, at All Saints Catholic Secondary School today to share how the new school will support families in the growing community. The new facilities will also include a child care room and an EarlyON Child and Family Centre room to provide more families with high-quality child care.
The new school facilities will replace the existing school on Michael Boulevard and include space for more than 320 students from Kindergarten to Grade 8.
Ontario recently launched the 2019-20 Capital Priorities Program to provide school boards with the opportunity to access funding for large-scale projects in every region of the province. The program will also provide funding for school-based child care spaces as part of the government's commitment to build up to 10,000 new child care spaces in schools.
