Jordan Tinney.

Students in South Surrey can look forward to more classroom space in an expanded Sunnyside Elementary, and a new school destined for a site purchased in the Darts Hill area.

Minister of Education Rob Fleming was in Surrey on Thursday afternoon to announce the combined $25.4-million investment in the 10-classroom, 250-seat addition at Sunnyside, and the site where a new elementary school will be built. The school district is contributing another $5 for the Darts Hill site.

"As Surrey continues to grow, we'll keep building new and expanded schools wherever they're needed, so every student has the best chance to succeed," he said.

Trustee Laurae McNally was thrilled at the government commitment to new school space in the rapidly growing South Surrey neighbourhood. She thanked the Sunnyside Elementary school community for their patience, both in the past and while construction of the addition proceeds.

"I look forward to coming back here soon to celebrate the opening of your new addition," McNally said.

The Sunnyside addition is anticipated to eliminate the need for up to 12 portables at the school, and is expected to be complete by September 2022
