Errol Village School in Camlachie will be expanded as part of Ontario’s effort to renew existing schools.
A $3.8-million addition will add 46 student spaces and 49 licensed childcare spaces, creating two new classrooms and a three-room childcare addition, Sarnia-Lambton MPP Bob Bailey said last week.
The school’s projected population next year is 248 students, and that number is expected to grow, said Brian McKay, business superintendent at the Lambton Kent District School Board.
Errol Village School currently has one portable and a second would have been required had the funding announcement not come through, he said.
Groundbreaking is expected to start next spring.
