Families in the growing Cloverley neighbourhood will benefit from a new elementary school that meets students’ needs.
The Province is providing as much as $61 million and the North Vancouver School District is contributing an additional $3 million to build a new elementary school in the Cloverley neighbourhood. The new school will have capacity for 585 students and will include a neighbourhood learning centre with services that benefit the broader community, such as child care. Construction is expected to start in fall 2024, and the school will be ready for students in time for the 2026-27 school year.
“The city of North Vancouver is a desirable place to raise young families and the welcome chorus of children’s voices in our community also means an increasing demand for space in our public education system,” said Bowinn Ma, MLA for North Vancouver-Lonsdale. “The need for a new elementary school at the old Cloverley site has been growing, and I’m relieved to see our ongoing efforts of the past several years to build a new school now reach this crucial funding milestone. My gratitude to all the parents for their ongoing advocacy and to the school district for their partnership in getting this project to where it is today.”
