Construction has started on a new intermediate school in Paradise, Newfoundland. Anticipated to be completed by September 2021, the new school will be approximately 11,000 square metres over three floors and accommodate more than 800 students from Grades 6 to 9.
“We are pleased to be moving forward with construction of the new Paradise Intermediate School,” said Brian Warr, Minister of Education and Early Childhood Development. “This school will meet the needs of students and families in the Paradise area and will have a positive impact on the quality of education for children in Grades 6 to 9. We look forward to seeing the completion of this facility.”
The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador awarded a contract valued at $30.9 million to Lindsay Construction for the new Paradise Intermediate School in April.
Construction of the new school in Paradise is one of several ongoing school infrastructure projects. Concrete for a new school in Bay Roberts was poured last week and construction of new schools in Gander and Bay d’Espoir are expected to start later in 2019. They are all anticipated to be completed in 2021.
