In June, the BC Gov­ern­ment an­nounced that Sur­rey will see ad­di­tional school in­fra­struc­ture in­vest­ments.

“The Sur­rey Board of Trade, who has been an on­go­ing ad­vo­cate for needed school in­vest­ments in Sur­rey, thanks the BC Gov­ern­ment for in­vest­ing in a new 655-seat ele­men­tary school in Sun­ny­side Heights, a 195-seat ad­di­tion at White Rock Ele­men­tary, and a 190-seat ad­di­tion at Mor­gan Ele­men­tary,” said Anita Hu­ber­man, CEO, Sur­rey Board of Trade.

“Qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion ben­e­fits stu­dents in Sur­rey, con­trib­utes to healthy com­mu­ni­ties, and en­ables eco­nomic growth for our fu­ture work­force.”

The Sur­rey School District had more than 1,200 stu­dents more than an­tic­i­pated in en­roll­ment after Labour Day last year, in K-12 schools.

The Sur­rey Board of Trade urges the BC Gov­ern­ment to elim­i­nate the use of porta­bles in the Sur­rey School District. Fur­ther, the BC Gov­ern­ment has an op­por­tu­nity to en­sure that space and cur­ricu­lum is com­mit­ted to for art ed­u­ca­tion in Sur­rey schools. This will har­ness a creative work­force which is needed as we move into a more dig­i­tal econ­omy.
