Waiting Approval of New School in South Campus

The following information is from a member of the UNA Board.

VSB has made an application to the Ministry of Education to take occupancy of the future school site in the old NRC building in South Campus. Once this application is approved, renovation of the NRC building for the new school and construction of a new gym will be scheduled. The earliest opening date of the new school will likely be Sept 2009.

VSB has a plan/feasibility study for the current U Hill Secondary school site. Likely much of the building will be demolished. The gym will stay. This new school and the current U Hill Elementary will offer Kindergarten through to Grade 7. All of this, however, is still in the pre-approval planning stages. VSB will get more serious once their application for the secondary school in South Campus is approved.
