The Upper Canada District School Board’s (UCDSB) long-term vision to “build for the future” was further supported by the Ontario Ministry of Education last week with the announcement of funding for a capital construction project at North Grenville District High School (NGDHS). The funding of over $6.6 million for this addition is intended to create approximately 221 additional spaces for students at NGDHS, creating a total of approximately 912 total pupil spaces at that location.
“We are delighted to receive these additional pupil spaces at NGDHS supported through this funding from the Ministry of Education,” commented UCDSB Chair Jeff McMillan. “This provincial funding will allow NGDHS students to continue to receive the high-quality education that they expect and deserve while allowing them to continue their learning journey within the same building in Kemptville.”
The Capital Priorities funding from the Ministry of Education will support an addition of approximately 2,800 square metres to the existing North Grenville District High School building, located at 2605 Concession Road in Kemptville.
“Our school district is thrilled to learn of this additional funding to support a thriving secondary school program in Kemptville and the surrounding area”, stated Director of Education Stephen Sliwa. “We would like to thank the Ministry of Education for its continuing support of the Upper Canada District School Board’s long-term accommodation plans in rural communities like Kemptville, which our Board has identified as a local priority for our students.”
