Parkland School Division is pleased to announce that Stony Plain Central will be receiving a replacement school as part of the recently announced 20 school projects associated with the Alberta Government’s Budget 2018 and specifically Alberta’s 2018 Capital Plan.
Budget 2018 allocates $393 million for these new projects, which are expected to be complete for the 2022-23 school year.
“This is such welcome news with the announcement of the approval for a replacement school for Stony Plain Central School,” stated Board Chair Eric Cameron.
“We are appreciative of our government's commitment to school capital projects in the province. Our Stony Plain public has been very patient in anticipation of the replacement of the aging Stony Plain Central School. We are most eager to begin design plans and hope to work closely with the Town of Stony Plain in their area structure plans.”
“In Parkland School Division, we believe that learning is the foundation in all we do,” commented Superintendent Tim Monds.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled that we’ll be pouring another foundation for another new school in our ever-growing school jurisdiction. For years now, our overcrowded schools have been forced to be creative when it came to using every square centimetre in their buildings. Spruce Grove is well on the way to right-sizing with the opening of 2 new Kindergarten to Grade 9 schools and the modernization of Woodhaven Middle School. The Town of Stony Plain has experienced similar enrolment growth and a new school in the heart of a rejuvenated town centre will be something all residents can be proud of for years to come.”
At Stony Plain Central School, our purpose is to work collaboratively with our school community to create a positive, respectful learning environment that fosters trusting relationships, pride in accomplishments and life-long learning.
In order to participate successfully in an ever-changing world, Stony Plain Central School provides developmentally-appropriate learning experiences that teach students to:
- Solve problems, think critically and be able to access and process information effectively
- Make responsible choices
- Be courteous, productive citizens
- Be lifelong learners
Imagining, Achieving, Growing, Celebrating
Learning begins with imagination. It is the process of imagining that helps to bring meaning to our experiences and understanding to our knowledge. By imagining, our students make sense of their world and dream of a future. At Stony Plain Central, imagination is the raw material of learning.
Learning is strengthened by achievement. Our students set goals and create permanence through practice. Each new step becomes a new achievement on the journey of imagination. Learning, made real by doing, creates new avenues and opportunities for future growth.
Learning is growing. At Stony Plain Central, our belief in imagination and achievement means that students are encouraged to see learning as a lifelong process. As our students continue to learn, their growth becomes a movement toward excellence. We foster growth by making sure that we are always doing what is right and by caring about each other.
Celebrating energizes learning. Our students’ sense of imagination, achievement and growth are reinforced through public celebrations of our success. At Stony Plain Central, we enjoy recognizing what we have done well and this recognition motivates future learning and the embrace of new challenges.
