PROVINCIAL FUNDING FOR SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS IN MELVILLE

Education Minister Clay Serby today announced provincial support of

approximately $370,000 to upgrade two schools in Melville. The

projects are two 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 Melville School Division will receive approximately $305,000 in

provincial funding for the construction of a computer lab, an addition

to the library, and a relocatable classroom at Davison Elementary

School. The total estimated cost of the project is $440,000.



St. Henry's Roman Catholic Separate School Division is receiving

$65,000 from the province to replace the boilers in the gymnasium and

the south classroom wing at St. Henry's School. The estimated cost of

this project is $85,000.



"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.
