Additional Surrey School Investments
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.
