The Province of Ontario announced Monday morning that a new Catholic Central Secondary School for 850 students will be built.

The new school at a cost of $26 million is slated to be built on the downtown property currently occupied by the old Windsor Arena and Water World.

Director of Education Paul Picard expressed his gratitude to the Government of Ontario and the Ministry of Education for funding the project.

“They have recognized that we need a modern learning facility, able to incorporate all the latest advanced technology we rely upon to provide students with a top quality education,” he said. “We believe this new school will be another excellent addition to our downtown core.”

Picard said the Board will soon begin the next steps of tendering for project managers to oversee the construction of the new school.

“We’ll have much more to say about that in the coming days, but for the time being, we are just enjoying the outstanding news that we received today.”
