Education Minister Clay Serby today announced provincial support of
approximately $385,000 to upgrade two schools in Regina. The projects
are among 34 school renovation or upgrading projects announced today
throughout Saskatchewan. These projects will receive provincial
funding totaling $5.7 million.
"Saskatchewan Education is committing $24 million to over 100 school
upgrading, renovation or construction projects this year," Bradley
said. "This continues the level of funding for school capital
projects from last year. The investment we are making in our schools,
and in the education of Saskatchewan children, is a good investment in
the province's future."
The Regina Roman Catholic Separate School Division will receive
approximately $385,000 in provincial funding to upgrade mechanical
ventilation and electrical systems at St. Andrew School and arts
education areas at Archbishop M.C. O'Neill High School. The total
estimated cost of these projects is slightly over $1 million.
"School upgrading projects like this demonstrate the government's
commitment to working with school divisions to provide students with
comfortable and well-equipped learning facilities," Serby said.

renovation projects approved by Saskatchewan Education in the
1999-2000 fiscal year, and is in addition to major construction
