Ontario Opens New School in Vaughan

New Roméo Dallaire Public School To Enhance Student Achievement

More than 615 elementary students will start their 2015-16 academic year in a brand new, state-of-the-art school that will help foster student achievement and well-being for generations to come.

This fall, Roméo Dallaire Public School in Vaughan will open its doors to elementary students for the first time. The new school is the result of an $11,555,469 investment by the province and extensive planning by the York Region District School Board.

Giving students the best possible learning environment is part of the government’s plan for Ontario. The four-part plan is building Ontario up by investing in people's talents and skills, building new public infrastructure like roads and transit, creating a dynamic, supportive environment where business thrives, and building a secure savings plan so everyone can afford to retire.

QUOTES

“I’m proud of the province’s continued investment in Vaughan’s youth and infrastructure. As our community continues to grow, our students will benefit from this new school for years to come.”

— Steven Del Duca, MPP for Vaughan

“Our government is proud to invest in capital projects that are delivering better buildings for better learning. These projects are bringing students and communities together and in some cases reducing the cost of under-used space so we can reinvest savings back into the classroom.”

— Liz Sandals, Minister of Education

QUICK FACTS

  • Since 2003, the province has invested about $12.9 billion in school infrastructure, including nearly 725 new schools and more than 700 additions and renovations.
  • Over the next 10 years, the province plans to provide school boards with more than $11 billion to help build new schools in areas of high growth, improve the condition of existing schools, and invest in projects to reduce surplus space through school consolidations.
