The new catchments will give Anne Roberts Young a first cohort of an estimated 285 students when it opens in September 2020.

The changes will have the most impact at Alwin Holland, which is at 144% of capacity with 383 students this year. The new catchment will move nearly 180 students to Anne Roberts Young.

Bert Ambrose, at 116% capacity with 309 students, is expected to see around 80 students shift to Anne Roberts Young; while around 60 students will be moved from Robert Ogilvie, also at 116% capacity with 309 students.

The two-storey, $31.1-million school is being built on 112 Avenue across from the hospital, and will include seats for 505 students, as well as a neighbourhood learning centre, a daycare, and multi-purpose spaces for community use.

Broyden Bennett was named its first principal.
