Four new schools being built in Saskatoon have been named.
The Saskatoon Board of Education made the announcement at a meeting Tuesday night.
“Our board of trustees has chosen to honour four admirable individuals who have made incredible contributions to our community,” said Ray Morrison, board chair, in a news release the same day.
“They set an inspiring example for the students who will learn and grow in these new schools.”
The new names are:
- Sylvia Fedoruk School – Evergreen
- Ernest Lindner School – Hampton Village
- Colette Bourgonje School – Rosewood
- Chief Whitecap School – Stonebridge
Public consultations with people living in the neighbourhoods, written submissions and board research led to the names.
The P3 schools are set to be ready for the 2017-18 school year.
