It’s no surprise a new school has once again landed at the top of the Brandon School Division’s five-year capital plan.

School board chair Mark Sefton said the plan is a list "that reflects the growing enrolment in the division and demands of servicing that."

Besides requesting a new school be built in Brandon, the board is also requesting a new gymnasium at Green Acres School as well as renovations to the existing gym to turn it into either classroom or library space.

In April, Green Acres celebrated its 50th anniversary and with a new housing development being built nearby, these renovations will provide much-needed space for future students, Sefton said.

Also near the top of the list were classroom additions to a number of schools, new science labs at Vincent Massey High School and renovations to Crocus Plains Regional Secondary School’s kitchen for culinary arts students.

Sefton said the capital plan was approved during last week’s regular school board meeting and has since been submitted to the Public Schools Finance Board for further study.

He added the board receives and reviews reports from 37 school divisions before proceeding with funding and tendering criteria.
