Government is proud to officially open the $20 million K-12 Souris Regional School, says Premier Robert Ghiz.
“The official opening of Souris Regional School marks another milestone in our government’s investments in education in Prince Edward Island,” said Premier Ghiz. “Souris Regional is a state-of-the-art, high quality learning environment that will meet the needs of students for years to come.”
The construction of Souris Regional School began in the spring of 2013. The K-12 school is 128,000 square feet. Among its many features, the school has a new K-6 academic wing, a culinary teaching area, enhanced IT and trades spaces, two gymnasiums and three playgrounds.
Students began classes at the new school in the fall of 2014, and final site work will be completed in March. The last phase includes renovation of shop areas, change rooms for K-6 gym and a new teachers’ lounge.
“Students have told me how much they love their new school, and I’ve heard that the student body is starting to feel like a big family,” said Minister Alan McIsaac. “I’m confident that students will graduate from Souris Regional School with the knowledge and skills they need to reach their full potential.”
The planning and design for the school was done by W.D. Lawrence Architecture. APM Construction Services is the construction manager for the project.
