The provincial government is building and renovating nearly 90 schools across the province – but none of them will be around here.

The government issued a release detailing its latest project – the construction of 39 new schools, with 48 other schools getting additions or retrofits. The project is expected to cost more than $700 million. The province has $1.4 billion in capital funding to support the expansion of full-day kindergarten, and all new elementary schools will be built to accommodate a full-day of class for the young ones.

“These new projects will provide improved, modern spaces to help students focus on learning while supporting the continued rollout of full-day kindergarten,” said a press release.

The only school within the Bluewater District School Board that will see any changes will be in Chesley. The elementary school in Chesley will get an addition. An addition is also planned for Immaculate Conception School in Formosa (Bruce-Grey Catholic School Board).
