We're learning a little more about plans for a new school in Delia.
On Wednesday, June 13 the school's Enhancement Committee had some special guests come down to inform them on some of their plans.
"Prairieland Superintendent Cam McKeage came out to our school, along with some other adminstartion people from Prairieland, and gave us some information about the new school." said committee member Amber Marshall. "Unfortunatly, they do not have a ton of details right now as it is very much in its infancy at this point."
The new school will be able to house 150 students in comparison to the 135 students in the current school.
The committee has their work cut out for them as they plan ahead.
"We need to set some priorities on what our community would like to see in the school. We do have a very short timeline. Before they start the architectual drawings, we have to have raising of the funds well underway." explained Marshall.
The commitee seems to have their ducks in a row and is excited to get started.
"Our enhancement society has offically had its annual general meeting, which essentially is a establishment meeting. We now have an executive in place that can start to put together some capital campaigns. We have 37 members." related Marshall, "We have already sent in our application to Corporate Registries. We just need to hit the ground running and raise funds."
The new Delia School is one of 20 school replacements and refurbishment projects that the Alberta Government announced were to be funded earlier this year.
