Schools Involved

St. Boniface


The Ministry of Education announced funding for a replacement school for St. Boniface. This funding is specific to Breslau and may not be used to rebuild St. Boniface in Maryhill.

If it is determined through the public consultation process that Maryhill is the preferred location, then the board has the ability to re-apply for funding from the Ministry of Education with no guarantee that the Ministry will approve this request.

The purpose of this review is to determine which of the two following options is preferred:

  1. Remain in Maryhill; or,
  2. Relocate to Breslau.

Written comments may be submitted by email, mail, fax or dropped off at your school. If you wish to receive email updates throughout the review, please send us an email.
