"This is such welcome news with the announcement of the approval for a replacement school for Stony Plain Central School. We are appreciative of our government's commitment to school capital projects in the province. Our Stony Plain public has been very patient in anticipation of the replacement of the aging Stony Plain Central School. We are most eager to begin design plans and hope to work closely with the Town of Stony Plain in their area structure plans.”
- Eric Cameron, Board Chair
"In Parkland School Division, we believe that learning is the foundation in all we do. We couldn’t be more thrilled that we’ll be pouring another foundation for another new school in our ever-growing school jurisdiction. For years now, our overcrowded schools have been forced to be creative when it came to using every square centimetre in their buildings. Spruce Grove is well on the way to right-sizing with the opening of two new Kindergarten to Grade 9 schools and the modernization of Woodhaven Middle School. The Town of Stony Plain has experienced similar enrolment growth and a new school in the heart of a rejuvenated town centre will be something all residents can be proud of for years to come."
- Tim Monds, Superintendent
"Our kids deserve to learn and grow in modern classrooms. That’s why we are improving existing schools and building new ones where they’re needed. With our announcement of 20 new and modernized school projects, we are making long-overdue progress and making sure all young Albertans can get a great education."
- Rachel Notley, Premier of Alberta
"Our government knows that stability in the school system helps students and their families, and we will continue to protect these core services for Albertans. We know that investing in education is one of the most important investments we can make in our province’s future, and that is why we will continue to make these important investments."
- David Eggen, Minister of Education
