PROVINCE ANNOUNCES TWO CLASSROOM ADDITION
TO DR. F.W.L. HAMILTON SCHOOL IN EAST ST. PAUL
 
 
Students and families in East St. Paul and the surrounding area will soon benefit from two new classrooms at Dr. F.W.L. Hamilton School that will add 1,720 square feet of learning space to the school, Education and Training Minister Ian Wishart announced today.

"Quality learning spaces directly impact student well-being and achievement,” said Wishart.  "We are making significant investments in upgrades to our public schools because we know how important it is to ensure all students have safe and healthy places in which to study.” 

Construction is set to begin in early 2018 with an anticipated completion date of September 2019, Wishart said. 

"We are pleased to support this project to accommodate the needs of our growing community for years to come,” said Infrastructure Minister Ron Schuler, who made the announcement on behalf of Wishart.

Dr. F.W.L. Hamilton School is a Kindergarten to Grade 5 English school with a September 2017 enrollment of 222 students.  The school also houses a licensed child-care facility for 30 school-aged children.

Schuler noted the project is supported by more than $92.4 million in planned capital spending by the province in 2017-18 for public school infrastructure projects, prioritizing the health and safety of students and educators, and accommodating growth in enrollment.

"We would like to thank the Manitoba government for their support on the two classroom addition at Dr. F.W.L Hamilton School,” said Colleen Carswell, board chair, River East Transcona School Division.  "We’ve seen significant growth in East St. Paul and the two new classrooms will help us to better meet the needs of our students, staff and school community.”
