Two Carleton Place schools are among three schools in the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario that will be receiving millions of dollars in funding from the Ministry of Education’s Capital Priorities Program.

The funds will go toward proceeding with construction projects at thre schools, “delivering much-needed additional classroom space for students in the growing communities of Carleton Place and Russell,” says a media release from the board.

Notre Dame Catholic High School in Carleton Place (Grades 7-12) will receive $4.34M for a 10-classroom addition to the existing school facility, which will address accommodations for 230 permanent pupil places.

St. Gregory Catholic School in Carleton Place (grades K-3) will receive $4.59M for a seven-classroom addition and internal renovations to the existing school facility, which will address accommodations for 164 new permanent pupil places.

St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic High School in Russell (grades 7-12) will receive $5.34M for a 10-classroom addition to the existing school facility which will address accommodations for 230 permanent pupil places.

“Russell and Carleton Place are indeed growing communities, and the addition of permanent classrooms is an essential part of meeting the learning needs of the many families in these areas,” said CDSBEO Director of Education Laurie Corrigan in the media release. “We appreciate accessible and modern facilities, and we are excited to be able to expand our schools, support the varied learning requirements of our students, and continue to grow Catholic school communities.”
