Construction has begun on a project that is designed to turn the Souris high school into a kindergarten to Grade 12 school for the 2014-15 school year, reports The Guardian.
The project includes more than 120,000 square feet of space, a new K-6 academic wing, a culinary teaching area, enhanced IT and trades spaces, two gymnasiums and three playgrounds.The provincial government will provide $20 million for the project.
More than half of the space in the K-12 school will be new construction and the remaining space will be completely upgraded.
The first phase of construction, which began in May, includes the new K-6 wing, a cafetorium, culinary Space, and admin and music wing, a library, new siding and windows.
The planning and design for the school was done by W.D. Lawrence Architecture. APM Construction Services is the construction manager for the project.
The school is scheduled to open in the fall of 2014, with final site work to be completed over the spring and summer of 2015.
