Since the Division began in 2006, Prairie Valley has completed six major facility capital projects:
Emerald Ridge Elementary School - Construction began on this brand new state-of-the-art school in fall 2012 and was ready for students by the first day of school in September 2014. Some of the school’s unique features are the areas of instruction grouped by age and grade, the project room and the flexibility of the core area of the school, which includes the main entrance area, the gym and the performing arts area.
Lumsden Elementary School Addition - Construction began in January 2013 with project completion by September 2014. The upgraded facility is home to a new 51 space licensed child care centre, a larger gym and new gym services area, a performing arts centre, an expanded science lab, and a learning street that serves as a gathering place for students.
