New North Shore FI School

In November 2015, the Greater Essex County District School Board (GECDSB) was awarded a grant of $15.3 million for the construction of a new, dual-track, French Immersion and English school in Tecumseh. This new school will replace the current D.M. Eagle Public School and serve students from Kindergarten to Grade 8 within the Tecumseh and Lakeshore areas.
