The Ontario government is investing $17 million to build a new Unnamed Seaton #1 Catholic Elementary School in Pickering and nearly $2 million more on improvements to two existing Pickering schools.

The Seaton investment in the Durham Catholic District School Board, announced by Education Minister Stephen Lecce and Finance Minister Peter Bethlenfalvy, MPP for Pickering-Uxbridge, will support the creation of 622 elementary student spaces and 88 child care spaces as part of the government’s commitment to building modern, accessible, and technologically connected schools for Ontario youth.

Queen’s Park is also investing $1.6 million to create 49 child care spaces at Rosebank Road Public School in Pickering. Once complete, the project will provide one infant room, one toddler room and one preschool room through the province’s Early Years Capital Program.

The Ontario government is also providing $368,000 to improve École secondaire publique Ronald-Marion in Pickering. This investment in Conseil scolaire Viamonde will support the creation of 69 student spaces for students in Grades 7-12.
