Northside-Westmount MLA Eddie Orrell congratulates the hardworking local community members for getting a new middle school for North Sydney-Sydney Mines area.

Today, the government announced its school capital plan that will offer new schools or major school renovations to thirteen communities. A middle school in the North Sydney-Sydney Mines area is slated to be built over the next five years.

“The community has really come together on the need for a new school in this area,” says Orrell. “I am happy to see that their hard work has paid off.”

Orrell hopes that the community will continue to have a voice in the next phases of site determination, design and build.

“We need to consult with the community during this process,” says Orrell. “They understand the needs of this area and will offer a positive insight on what kind of school they need.”

Ferrisview School is also scheduled for renovations due to enrollment pressures.
