Groundbreaking for New Woodstock School Today

The groundbreaking ceremony will begin at 1:30 p.m.

WOODSTOCK - It is an exciting time for the Thames Valley District School Board and the City of Woodstock.

This afternoon there will be a ceremony taking place to welcome the start of construction for the new school and child care centre. Municipal politicians, local members of parliament, project participants, TVDSB representatives, and future students will be on hand.

Oxford MPP, Ernie Hardeman says it is nice to see the planning finally become a reality.

"This new school will be a welcome addition to north Woodstock. I am excited to see this project get underway. My constituents and I are looking forward to seeing this new facility develop during the construction process."

Kelly Black of the Oxford CMSM expresses her excitement for the project. 

"Oxford County welcomes the additional child care spaces planned to get started in the near future to provide much needed spaces and improve access to child care in Oxford County. Child care within schools provide opportunities for partnerships and seamless transition for children into school-age education. Oxford County is pleased with the investment by the Province in licensed school based child care in the County."

The ceremony gets underway at 1:30 p.m. and will be at the site of the facility, which is 717 Knights Lane.
