The Government of Saskatchewan announced the completion of a major renovation project at Yorkton Regional High School.

The renovation includes the replacement of heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems, windows and electrical system upgrades, a new roof, and transforming the outside of the school’s front entrance. Regina-based Westridge Construction Ltd. led construction for the project.

The $19.1 million investment for the renovation represents the Government of Saskatchewan’s continued commitment to transform and modernize school facilities in the province.

“A welcoming learning environment with a focus on safety and comfort for students and staff was the vision for this renovation and we are pleased to see the final results today,” said Education Minister Jeremy Cockrill. “These renovations will serve students and staff for decades to come.”

“Our school is indeed more than a building; it is a nurturing hub for over 900 dedicated individuals,” said Quintin Robertson, Director of Education/CEO, The Good Spirit School Division. “This renovation symbolizes our shared commitment to a future where students are not only first but are empowered to reach new heights of excellence.”

“Investing in Saskatchewan’s students through the infrastructure that allows them to learn comfortably is a giant step towards growing our communities,” added SaskBuilds and Procurement Minister Joe Hargrave. “Upgrades to schools like the Yorkton Regional High School means better quality of life to those who live, work, and study there.”
