Construction has officially began on the new Ecole Connaught Community School.
The province held a sod turning ceremony to mark the occasion on Monday afternoon.
Once finished, the school will be 57,000 square feet and will include 17 new classrooms, a state-of-the-art gym, library, resource centre and multi-purpose rooms for students and community use.
The school is set to open for the 2017 school year. The old building was demolished in 2014.
