New Prince Andrew Public School

​​​News School Announcement Event.jpgIn October 2016 the Ontario Ministry of Education awarded a grant of $9,180,832 to build a replacement for Prince Andrew Public School in LaSalle. The project was announced at an event held in Amherstburg where the funding for a new high school was also revealed.

Trustee for LaSalle and Amherstburg, Ron LeClair described it ​as "a glorius day" for the towns and the GECDSB, "A new school is exciting and can revitalize a community. It can create a host of possibilities for everyone. But we also know that new school buildings - designed to current standards with the latest infrastructure and capabilities - support student achievement.​​​

In September, 2018 land was acquried by the Board for the project ​(see map, posted, below). The next steps are design, Ministry and Board of Trustees approval and the tendering of the project for a general contractor. Once work begins, it usually takes between 12-14 months to build a school of this size.​New Board Property Location Map.jpg
