Education Minister Clay Serby today announced provincial support of

approximately $160,000 to upgrade a school in Maple Creek. The

project is one of 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," Serby 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 Maple Creek School Division is receiving approximately $160,000 in

provincial funding for demolition of the Horsham Wing, renovations for

home economics and science facilities, and exterior wall repairs at

Richmound School. The total estimated cost of the project is

approximately $350,000.



"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.



Today's announcement is the first phase of upgrading and

renovation projects approved by Saskatchewan Education in the

1999-2000 fiscal year, and is in addition to major construction

projects already announced for Pinehouse, Estevan, Kennedy,

Regina and Meadow Lake.
