Hampton Village in Saskatoon Celebrates the Grand Opening of Ernest Lindner School

Released on September 15, 2017

Today Education Minister Bronwyn Eyre joined students, teachers, dignitaries and representatives from the Saskatoon Public School Division to celebrate the grand opening of Ernest Lindner School in Hampton Village.

“Residents of Hampton Village and northwest Saskatoon can now enjoy this beautiful school that creates a brighter future for the many students and families living in this community,” Eyre said.  “Ernest Lindner School shows us the benefits of involving students, teachers and school divisions during the design process three years ago, which generated countless ideas and ensured that these schools were creative, inspiring and built for the 21st century.”

“The families of Hampton Village have waited a long time for this school and we are excited to finally open it for them,” Saskatoon Public Schools Board Chair Ray Morrison said.  “Judging by the overwhelming response we have already received, we know this school will be the heart of the community.”

Ernest Lindner School is named for Ernest Friedrich Lindner, a nationally respected landscape artist who made a substantial contribution to the education of many students as a long-time teacher with Saskatoon Public Schools.  His teaching and leadership influenced hundreds of students during a career that spanned more than 30 years.

“With our school bearing the name of Ernest Lindner, we are looking forward to working with our students to learn more about the work of this gifted artist,” Ernest Lindner School Principal Mitch Kachur said.  “Our staff members are exploring ways to use visual arts and creativity to inform our work with students in the classroom.  The learning opportunities are endless.”

Ernest Lindner School is a joint-use school that shares space with St. Lorenzo Ruiz Catholic School.  It’s part of the P3 Joint-Use Schools Project that includes 18 publically-owned elementary schools built on nine joint-use sites and nine 90-space child care centres in Saskatoon, Martensville, Warman and Regina.

Each school is hosting celebration events throughout the months of September and October.

Since 2007, the Government of Saskatchewan has committed approximately $1.5 billion toward 67 major school capital projects and numerous smaller projects such as portable classrooms and preventative maintenance and renewal.
