School trustees are looking for feedback and have scheduled three public meetings to hear from those impacted. 

• Thursday, November 7 — Bert Ambrose Elementary School, 7 p.m.

• Tuesday, November 19 — School Board Office, 7 p.m. 

• Monday, November 25 — Alwin Holland Elementary School, 7 p.m.

“Building this school has been an exciting project that will enhance the education offerings of the district as well as provide some relief for current space constrictions in our elementary schools east of 100th Street,” board chair Ida Campbell wrote in an Oct. 8 letter to parents. 

The new school is scheduled to open in fall 2020.

It will have seats for 505 students, and include a neighbourhood learning centre, a daycare, and multi-purpose spaces for community use.

Written submissions will be accepted at the board office until Dec. 19, or via email to
