As the 2020-2021 school year begins to wind down, work on the rebuilds for the Delia and Morrin Schools continues without signs of slowing down.
Construction on the new Delia School has been ongoing since September 2020 when ground first broke on the new facility.
“With Delia School, we are ahead of schedule but are still uncertain as to when the move-in will happen during the 2021-2022 school year,” says Prairie Land School Division Superintendent Cam McKeage.
Staff were recently given a tour of the new school building.
Residents in the Village of Morrin will also see the existing K-12 Morrin School rebuilt.
Red Deer company Group2 Architecture and Interior Design were announced as the prime consultant for the new school in October 2020.
“In regards to Morrin School, we just finished the detail design stage which means we have completed 40 per cent of the overall design of the school,” McKeage told the Mail.
Friends of Morrin School Council has been busy fundraising to include bleacher and educational space, along with a library expansion
in the new school. As of Tuesday, May 10, a total of $628,859.31 has been raised.
