Preparations are underway to welcome students to Colette Bourgonje School, one of four new Saskatoon Public Schools elementary schools scheduled to open in September 2017.
Work on the joint-use school projects located in the Rosewood, Evergreen, Hampton Village, and Stonebridge neighbourhoods reached the halfway mark in mid-September and the projects are on-schedule for early summer 2017 occupancy to begin preparation for classes.
Earlier this year, Saskatoon Public Schools appointed principals for all four of the new schools, including Ms. Nicola Bishop-Yong at Colette Bourgonje School, located in the Rosewood neighbourhood. All of the principals will assume full-time duties for their new schools early in 2017.
Registration information for the schools will be available during the fall of 2016. Questions about student enrolment and education matters related specifically to Chief Whitecap School can be addressed to Principal Bishop-Yong via email.
Each of the four joint-use projects being built by the Government of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon will also include a 90-space childcare facility. Once the childcare providers for each location have been selected the respective providers will provide information to parents on registration and other details.
