Office of the Director of Education


March 27, 2018


Dear Parents/Guardians, Catholic SchoolAdvisoryCouncils,Principals and Staff of the St. Matthias and Our Lady of Guadalupe School Communities,

As you are aware, business cases requesting funding for a new school at St. Matthias were submitted to the Ministry first through School Consolidation Capital on January 27, 2017, and then again through Capital Priorities on September 8, 2017.

The Board is pleased to announce that on March 13, 2018, the Board received official approval for funding of a new 525 pupil place school at St. Matthias.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their patience and participation throughout the Pupil Accommodation Review process and the subsequent request for funding.

We are unable to provide you with specific details around construction at this time however we look forward to your continued involvement throughout the process. We will provide further communication and regular updates to your communities when timelines for design and construction are established.

We look forward to your involvement throughout this process as we work together to meet the needs of the students and families of these communities.
