One major school construction project is complete, another is almost done and a third is taking shape. The three ventures total approximately $43.2 million in grants from the Ontario Ministry of Education.
The final touches have been put on an addition to Tecumseh Vista Academy. The new areas include a robotics lab, a fitness area / gym, a new STEPS room and a secondary classroom wing.
Phase 3 of the W.F. Herman Academy construction is well underway. This final phase includes a new elementary gym. Work began last year to convert the high school into a JK-12school with Kindergarten classrooms (pictured, right), new secondary and elementary offices and a new staff room. The construction should all be done this fall.
The walls are beginning to go up at the new Leamington District Secondary School (pictured, above). The warm, dry summer helped with the completion of the site preparation and the building is now beginning to rise from the ground. It should all be done for the 2017-18 school year.
