The Saskatoon Public School division desires to roll Princess Alexandra, King George and Pleasant Hill group colleges into one; a transfer that’s raised issues from dad and mom in these neighbourhoods.
Discovering a location for this new amalgamated faculty has been a problem. The unique plan was to mix all three colleges at a location round Princess Alexandra, however the division is the opportunity of constructing the varsity at Optimist Park, which the town owns.
“We’ve most likely by no means seen a faculty division choice that may have this stage of disruption to so many residents,” mentioned Coun. Hilary Gough throughout the assembly.
“We actually have to lean into the specialists right here — who’re the oldsters who dwell in these neighbourhoods who ship their children to those colleges and who will ship their children to those colleges sooner or later?”
Council additionally voted to increase the search to underused heaps in Saskatoon’s west industrial space.
