Abbotsford, BC  – Three schools in School District 34 will be able to proceed with routine capital projects, thanks to $1,083,600 in provincial funding. These improvements will help provide healthy, safe and modern learning environments.

·         Centennial Park Elementary School: Roof top improvements. Cost: $567,600. Areas of the roof will be replaced.

·         W.J. Mouat Secondary School: Air unit upgrades. Cost: $348,000. New roof top heat pumps and high efficiency condensing air units will be installed with direct digital controls for improved efficiency.

·         Blue Jay Elementary School: Condensing unit and hot water tank replacement. Cost: $168,000. Condensing units and hot water heaters will be replaced along with new direct digital controls for improved efficiency.

Work is expected to begin this year and finish by spring 2016.

“It’s well worth engaging in structural improvements for schools as it extends their useful life,” Abbotsford West MLA Michael de Jong said. “As a graduate of W.J. Mouat, I’m very pleased to see my old alma mater, as well as other Abbotsford schools, receive these upgrades so they can continue to provide excellent educational opportunities for our students.”

“These schools in Abbotsford are receiving significant funding so they can operate as efficiently as possible,” Abbotsford South MLA Darryl Plecas said. “We recognize the importance of extending the life of our schools.”

These projects were approved under the province’s routine capital program. Projects were chosen based on need, priority, and supporting student learning.
