The Halton District School Board is pleased to confirm it has received capital funding from the Ministry of Education for the construction of an addition at Nelson High School and a child care retrofit at Frontenac Public School.
For the construction of an addition at Nelson High School, the Board will receive $15,184,482. This project includes a new library and cafeteria to support the consolidation and closure of Robert Bateman High School in Burlington.
The Board will receive $1,028,508 to construct a two room stand-alone child care retrofit at Frontenac Public School that will accommodate 15 toddler and 24 pre-school spaces. The Lord Elgin YMCA Child Care Centre will move from Robert Bateman High School to Frontenac Public School in Burlington. Design phases are complete and the new space is expected to open in September 2020.
On behalf of HDSB students, the Board appreciates the role of the Ministry of Education and the Ontario government to improve the learning experience for students.
“This is fantastic news as this funding will strengthen our schools and provide improved programming and learning spaces for students,” says Stuart Miller, Director of Education for the Halton District School Board. “We are grateful for the hard-work of our HDSB Facility Services and Planning Department staff and for the support of our Board of Trustees, local MPP for Burlington Jane McKenna, Minister of Education Stephen Lecce, the Ministry of Education and the Ontario government for their ongoing commitment to improve the learning environment for our students."
