Greens on Gardiner Celebrates the Opening of K-8 School and Child Care Centre

Released on September 27, 2017

Today Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Gene Makowsky on behalf of Education Minister Bronwyn Eyre joined with students, teachers, dignitaries and representatives from Regina Public Schools to celebrate the grand opening of École Wascana Plains School in The Greens on Gardiner community in Regina as well as tour the new 90 space child care centre.

“It’s wonderful to be able to help welcome the staff and students to this new school,” Makowsky said.  “I’d like to thank the staff, board and school community council members at Regina Public Schools for making sure that this school meets the needs of the students and community.”

École Wascana Plains School is a K-8 school that can accommodate up to 650 students and offers dual track programs, meaning that students can choose to be part of the French immersion or English program.

“The heart of a new community is its schools,” Regina Public Schools Board Chair Katherine Gagne said.  “Through collaboration with the Government of Saskatchewan, Regina Catholic Schools and the community, we are proudly opening École Wascana Plains School to serve Regina’s growing population and the students that are its future.”

“The staff of École Wascana Plains is very excited to be working in this modern learning environment and can’t wait to welcome the school community of students and their families,” École Wascana Plains School Principal Jeannette Revet said.

École Wascana Plains shares space with École St. Elizabeth School and features a 90 space early learning and child care centre operated by First Years Learning Center Inc. – one of nine new 90 space child care centres that have opened in the province as part of the P3 Joint-Use Schools Project.

“All of our educators, leadership team and Board of Directors within First Years Learning Center Inc. are honoured and proud to have been chosen as a child care operator in one of the joint-use schools,” First Years Learning Center Inc. Executive Director Tara Jors said.  “We look forward to building partnerships with everyone at École Wascana Plains School and École St. Elizabeth School creating a strong learning environment for children in this community.”
