Ontario Government Building New School in Milton
MILTON ON – Today, Parm Gill, MPP for Milton announced that construction of the new Milton #10 Catholic Elementary School is now complete and will be welcoming new students into its doors this September for the 2022-23 school year. This project is a part of Ontario’s ongoing efforts to build and improve local schools, with the province providing Halton CDSB with $18.7 million to build the new school in Milton.
This investment is part of the Ontario government’s commitment to providing $14 billion to support school construction over 10 years. Since 2018, the government has approved nine new schools and five expansions in Milton.
“The completion of the new Milton #10 Catholic Elementary School is exciting news for our community as we continue to support new, modern schools for students in Milton,” said Parm Gill, MPP for Milton. “We will continue to work hard for the families and students of Milton”.
“Our government is investing $14 billion over ten years to build new schools, improve existing facilities and create child care spaces to ensure young people can reach their full potential,” said Stephen Lecce, Minister of Education. “By building Milton #10 Catholic Elementary School as well as investing in tutoring and mental health supports for the year ahead, we are getting students in Milton back on track now and well into the future. While we make progress building this new school for Milton to support hard-working parents, we remain committed to keeping students in class this September in more normal classrooms with extra curriculars, sports, and clubs.”
“Under Premier Ford’s leadership, we’re building more state-of-the-art schools to support the needs of Ontario’s students, families and growing communities. By investing in innovative and modern learning spaces, we’re ensuring students have access to the quality education that will provide them with lifelong skills and education in a safe and healthy environment,” said Kinga Surma, Minister of Infrastructure. “These investments are one of the ways we’re delivering on our promise to build Ontario, with an infrastructure budget of more than $148 billion over the next decade.”
“We are delighted with the completion of this new school in Milton and are excited to be able to temporarily welcome students and staff from St. Kateri Tekakwitha Catholic Secondary School into this brand-new building, as they await the completion of their new school,” commented Marvin Duarte, Milton Trustee and Chair of the Board. “We are grateful for the ongoing support of the Ministry of Education, and in particular the collaboration with Minister Gill as we work together to meet the needs of students and families in our growing community of Milton.”
Milton #10 Catholic Elementary School is located at 675 Kennedy Circle West in Milton.
