Brandon’s George Fitton School will get a new gymnasium and child-care centre by 2014.
Premier Greg Selinger was in the Wheat City Friday to announce the expansion, the same day the NDP’s annual convention kicked off.
The kindergarten to Grade 8 school has approximately 458 students. The gym expansion will more than double gym space to almost 9,000-square-feet and raise the roof nine feet to 24 feet. The expansion will also include space for change rooms, washrooms, storage and a teacher’s office. A new 6,092-square-foot early learning and child-care centre is also included in the expansion.
Construction will begin this summer.
