On Friday, the province provided the Durham District School Board (DDSB) with approval to award the tender for a new public school in North Oshawa.
Once this school is built it will have 536 spaces for elementary students and four new childcare rooms with space for 73 kids.
“The approval of the new North Oshawa PS is great news for families, and we are grateful for the local work and advocacy that helped make this possible. It will better serve our growing community and we sincerely look forward to seeing it open its doors to future students and families. Building learning environments, like this one in North Oshawa, that support student achievement and well-being puts our students on a strong path to learning and success,” read a statement from DDSB Oshawa Trustees Deb Oldfield, Shailene Panylo, and Linda Stone.
“By building schools faster, we’re ensuring that students reap the benefits of state-of-the-art learning facilities sooner and have access to education in a safe and healthy environment,” said Lorne Coe, MPP for Whitby.
