CONSTRUCTION BEGINS ON CENTENNIAL COLLEGIATE IN SASKATOON

Released on June 1, 2005

Saskatoon residents, students and Learning Minister Andrew Thomson, celebrated the start of construction on the new Centennial Collegiate this morning.

"When we upgrade or build new schools, we are investing in students and in the future of Saskatchewan," Thomson said. "The new Centennial Collegiate demonstrates our commitment to all Saskatchewan students and will help the youth of Saskatoon in reaching their potential."

The government will contribute over $10 million to this project over four years. The new, two-storey facility will include a performing arts theatre, resource room, large gymnasium, practical arts labs and classrooms, science labs and a students' common area. The school will open its doors to grade 9 and 10 students in 2006 and the core of the school is designed for a peak capacity of approximately 1,000 students.

"Centennial Collegiate will be a vital part of the community of northeast Saskatoon, offering not only relevant and challenging learning opportunities for students of Saskatoon Public Schools, but an opportunity for the community to enjoy the school's many amenities," Saskatoon Public Schools Board of Education Chair Dan Danielson said.

Centennial Collegiate will be the first school in the city that is part of an Integrated Community Centre. The Saskatoon Public School Division is partnering with the City of Saskatoon and the local soccer association in the construction of this joint-use facility. The new collegiate will lease space from the soccer association and use the indoor soccer centre adjacent to the school for its sports programs.

"This project is part of the government's commitment to invest in modern and well-equipped learning facilities for Saskatchewan students," Thomson added.
