St. Paul’s MPP Dr. Eric Hoskins announced $5.84 million today for a 276 pupil place addition to Hodgson Senior Public School to relieve accommodation pressure.
"This provincial funding is great news for families in the Hodgson Senior Public School area,” said Dr. Eric Hoskins, MPP for St. Paul’s. “A larger school shows our government continues to support local students with better schools for better learning. The $5.84 million investment will have a positive impact on students’ learning experience and help them reach their full potential.”
Across the province, Ontario is building 28 new schools and expanding and renovating 23 existing ones. This investment will ensure more students are benefitting from state-of-the-art learning facilities that can deliver a full range of programming.
“High-quality schools are the heart of our local communities and the foundation of our publicly funded education system. We know that better buildings support better learning. The funding announced today is a strategic investment in student achievement and well-being, and in the long-term prosperity of our province,” said Education Minister Mitzie Hunter.
The province is investing $2.7 billion over two years to support school repair and renewal. This funding is estimated to benefit more than 2,100 schools that have repair and renewal projects valued at $100,000 or more.
