Major Expansion and Renovation Celebrated at Weyburn Comprehensive School

Released on February 25, 2016

Today Education Minister Don Morgan joined students, teachers, members of the community and representatives from the South East Cornerstone Public School Division to celebrate the grand re-opening of Weyburn Comprehensive School.  The government contributed $41 million toward the project.

“With a growing student population in Weyburn more modern facilities were needed to provide a first-class educational experience for the students and teachers of this historic high school,” Morgan said.  “This investment demonstrates a commitment in our Saskatchewan Plan for Growth to improving the quality of life for our students, teachers and communities.”

The project will allow for the consolidation of the Weyburn Junior High School and Weyburn Comprehensive School starting next fall, which will make it a Grades 7-12 school.

The facility has approximately 35,000 square feet of additional space that includes a new entryway, large multipurpose auditorium, performing and visual arts spaces, band and choral music rooms, and a new school administration area.  It also included renovations to the classrooms, science labs, library and resource centre, commercial kitchen, as well as the expansion of the child care centre.

“We are pleased to officially open the newly renovated Weyburn Comprehensive School,” South East Cornerstone Public School Division Board Chair Audrey Trombley said.  “In September 2016 we will welcome students from Grades 7-12 to this facility and we look forward to providing more opportunities for these students to be successful.”

"Our school community is looking forward to showcasing our learning and talents in this new facility,” Weyburn Comprehensive School Principal Wade Oberg said.  “We are privileged and proud to educate our students in a school that will provide diverse programming in an upgraded facility.”

As part of the second phase of the project, the Southeast College, which shares space with Weyburn Comprehensive School, is also completing major renovations.  That project is expected to be completed in the spring.

Since 2007, the Government of Saskatchewan has committed approximately $966 million toward 65 major school capital projects and numerous smaller projects such as portable classrooms and preventative maintenance and renewal.
