Progress Has Been Made on Saskatchewan's Largest Ever New Schools Construction Project

Released on September 12, 2016

Today Deputy Premier and Education Minister Don Morgan joined school division officials for a tour of the joint-use schools in Regina.  The construction of six new elementary schools on three joint-use sites in Harbour Landing, Greens on Gardiner and Rosewood Park are on time and on budget with completion expected for summer 2017.

“Our government is delighted to see how quickly this project has evolved since we started construction a year ago,” Morgan said.  “The construction team, along with the school division and city partners have worked hard to ensure that these schools will be built on time and be ready for students by September 2017.”

Officials toured the Catholic and public schools at the Harbour Landing site in Regina today.

“The building of a new school is a lot like a student’s education; it is a work in progress, but shows more promise every day,” Regina Board of Education Chair Katherine Gagne said.  “We are very pleased to see promising progress here at École Harbour Landing School, as well as at the other Regina joint schools.  I am also encouraged that the Government of Saskatchewan has given public and Catholic school divisions the opportunity to work more closely together for the benefit of all Regina students.”

“We are very much looking forward to these schools opening next fall and it’s exciting to see St. Kateri Tekakwitha School so near completion,” Regina Catholic School Division Board Chair Frank Flegel said.  “Our enrolments are increasing and many of our schools are far beyond their capacity to house students which is challenging for both students and staff.  The new schools will ease that pressure and provide students with a 21st century learning facility.”

Twelve new schools are also being built on six joint-use sites in Saskatoon, Martensville and Warman.  Joint Use Mutual Partnership is the consortium of companies that is designing, building, financing and maintaining all 18 schools on nine joint-use sites.  Construction began in September 2015.

The schools will accommodate more than 11,000 students from Prekindergarten to Grade 8 at full design capacity, which includes more than 3,300 students in Regina, 5,700 students in Saskatoon and 2,100 students in Martensville and Warman.  Each joint-use school will contain a 90 space child care centre as well as community space.  Joint-use schools are co-owned by the public and Catholic school divisions.

Since 2007, the province has committed approximately $1.4 billion toward 65 major school capital projects and numerous smaller projects such as portable classrooms and preventative maintenance and renewal.
