An elementary school in Comox will get an 11-classroom expansion, estimated to cost around $16.5 million, the B.C. government says.

Aspen Park Elementary in Comox will get the prefabricated classrooms for the expansion, which will add around 270 seats to the school.

“As B.C.’s population continues to grow, our government is finding the best solutions to get more students into classrooms as quickly as possible,” said Rachna Singh, minister of education and child care.

“As school districts welcome more students in places like the Comox Valley, we’ll continue investing in the essential services that families need.”

The province says the classrooms will be built with sustainable and energy-efficient designs and will be ready for students in fall 2027.

“The addition of 11 new prefabricated classrooms at Aspen Park Elementary will ensure we continue to provide a healthy and successful educational environment for students and staff,” said Michelle Waite, chair of the Comox Valley School Board.

“This project is a significant step forward in helping us meet the needs of our growing student population in a timely manner and supporting their academic journey.”

This project is one of the major capital projects underway in six school districts on Vancouver Island.
