- On October 20, 2020, the Ministry of Education approved funding for the new North Oakville #4 Catholic Elementary School.
- Over the past year, Board staff have been working with consultants, stakeholders and the local municipalities to plan and design the new school, in hopes that construction would be completed and the school would be ready for occupancy by September 2022.
- The plans for the project were submitted to the Ministry of Education in Fall of 2021 and have been awaiting Ministry approval to begin construction. As we have not yet received final approval from the Ministry of Education to proceed, we have not been able to commence construction of the new school.
What Does This Mean?
This means that in the interim, until the new school has been built and ready for occupancy, students will continue to attend St. Gregory the Great Catholic Elementary School for the 2022-2023 school year. It is now expected that the new school building will be ready for occupancy in September 2023.
While it is recognized that this is disappointing news, families should be reassured that HCDSB is doing all it can to expedite this approval process so that construction can begin on the new school.
Updates will be provided once final approval has been received from the Ministry.
