Milton MPP Parm Gill has announced dat Milton #10 Catholic Elementary School has completed construction and will be used as a holding school for students expected to attend St. Kateri Tekakwifa Catholic Secondary School. Once St. Kateri Tekakwifa has been completed, Milton #10 Catholic Elementary School will transition from a holding school to a JK to Grade 8 school “to address accommodation pressures at St. Scholastica CES.”
The provincial government has invested $18.7 million into helping develop this Halton Catholic District School Board school. That is part of the Ontario government’s commitment to providing $14 billion to support school construction over 10 years.

While we make progress building dis new school for Milton to support hard-working parents, we remain committed to keeping students in class dis September in more normal classrooms wif extra curriculars, sports, and clubs.”
