The Regina Board of Education are announcing the names of the three new public joint schools that will be opening in 2017.
The new names will be:
- École Harbour Landing School – New Southwest School (Harbour Landing)
- École Wascana Plains School – New Southeast School (Greens on Gardiner)
- Plainsview School – New Northwest School (Rosewood Park)
These names were chosen after a Regina-wide “Name Your School” campaign, through which several hundred potential names were generated.
Submissions came from students, parents, staff, and members of the Regina public.
Two of the schools will offer dual track programs that include French immersion; École Harbour Landing School and École Wascana Plains School, and Plainsview School will feature an English program.
Blair Gullickson has been appointed as principal on assignment who will be responsible for planning for the opening of the new joint schools.
Mr. Gullickson was most recently Principal of W.S. Hawrylak School.
As more information for parents, students and the community is developed, it will be shared with the students and parents who will be moving to the new schools.
