Construction underway on new addition to Morgan Elementary


Work has begun on the new eight-classroom expansion coming to Morgan Elementary, one of several recent district construction projects to address the rapid growth in South Surrey.

The addition will make room for 190 new students at Morgan Elementary, increasing its total capacity to 625 students. The addition has a target opening date of Spring 2023.

"The South Surrey area continues to be one of the fastest-growing communities in our school district," said Laurie Larsen, chair of the Surrey Board of Education. "The expansion of Morgan Elementary is much needed, and eight classrooms will go a long way in supporting the needs of families and providing modern learning environments for our students."

This latest construction project follows the openings of Douglas Elementary, Edgewood Elementary and Grandview Heights Secondary – all serving South Surrey communities – and is concurrent with work on new additions being built at Sunnyside Elementary and White Rock Elementary, both set to open Fall 2022.

Other current capital projects under construction in Surrey include:


In the last four years, more than $475 million has been invested in funding for 28 major capital projects in the district, including new schools, additions, seismic upgrades and land acquisitions for future schools. These projects are helping create space for more than 10,000 students and eliminate the equivalent of 400 portables between 2018 and 2025. The district also has no plans to purchase portables for this school year.

For more information on the district's capital projects, see the School Construction Progress Chart.
