More classrooms for elementary students coming to Surrey

Families in Surrey will have 250 more student spaces in their community as part of the government’s plan to expand schools quicker.

“As our population grows in B.C and Surrey welcomes many new students to their schools, we are finding better solutions to deliver more classrooms as quickly as possible,” said Rachna Singh, Minister of Education and Child Care. “We are taking action through record investments in Surrey and these new additions will serve students for decades to come.”

A new six-classroom addition will be coming to École Martha Currie Elementary and four additional classrooms will be coming to Walnut Road Elementary. The use of prefabricated materials means students will be getting modern learning environments, including multiple classrooms and corridors that are built quickly. The new classrooms are expected to be ready in fall 2025. The new classrooms for Walnut Road will be added to the addition announced in fall 2023. With sustainable and energy-efficient designs, the additions also align with the Province’s CleanBC targets and meet B.C.’s enhanced energy requirements.
