Pipestone Flyer

The Provincial government will invest in a new modernization project at Wetaskiwin Composite High School as part of its Building Alberta Plan. “This new project reinforces our commitment to investing in Alberta’s families and communities. We are making certain that students and communities, today and long into the future, have the world-class school facilities they need to learn and be successful,”

said Redford.

    This Wetaskiwin High School modernization project will involve upgrades to the mechanical and electrical systems including air handlers and water systems, exterior including roofing and interior including ceiling finishes. Interior areas will be modified to make better use of space and/or better meet specialized educational programming needs such as Career and Technology Centers. "I am very pleased that Our Lady of Mount Pleasant School is included in the modernization initiative. Making the best use of existing space and investing wisely ensures our Camrose students benefit from having the most modern, up-to-date facility possible." Verlyn Olson, MLA

    Last spring, Premier Redford committed to build and modernize 120 schools throughout the province. This new modernization project is one example of how the province is building Alberta’s school infrastructure. Additional school projects are being announced in the next couple of weeks. Information about other school projects currently underway and additional details on the Wetaskiwin project, as it becomes available, can be found online.

    Under the Building Alberta Plan, the province is investing in families and communities, living within our means, and opening new markets for Alberta's resources to ensure we're able to fund the services Albertans told us matter most to them. We will continue to deliver the responsible change Albertans voted for.
