At the September 19, 2018 Board meeting, Trustees of the Halton District School Board approved the undertaking of a boundary review for the new Oakville NE #2 public school
to address the growth occurring in northeast Oakville. The boundary review will alleviate enrolment pressure at nearby elementary schools and accommodate new development within the community. At the March 6, 2019 Board meeting, trustees deliberated on numerous school boundary options and unanimously approved Scenario 14c
as the final boundary for the school.
The school, which is anticipated to open in fall 2020, will accommodate 770 students and include a five-room childcare centre. The budget for construction is approximately $20.7 million. The Halton District School Board has awarded the architectural tender to Hossack & Associates Architects Inc. of Mississauga, and the construction contract to Tambro Construction of Guelph.
In attendance at the ceremony will be Halton District School Board trustees, senior administrative staff, local government officials, area residents and a number of students who will attend the new school once it opens next year.
