February 13, 2020: Important Boundary Consultation Update
Dear Parents or Guardians,
The South Surrey-White Rock area of the school district continues to experience rapid growth predominantly due to new building developments and Neighbourhood Concept Plan (NCP) approvals.
As such, the district has worked with the Ministry of Education to secure two new elementary schools that are under construction (Site 180, 17325 2nd Ave., and Site 206, 16666 23rd Ave.), and an additional elementary school (Site 207, 1960 164A St.) is expected to have Ministry approval soon.
To prepare for the opening of the new schools, new catchment boundaries need to be established for the region and include the existing catchments of East Kensington, Hall’s Prairie, Morgan, Pacific Heights, Rosemary Heights and Sunnyside Elementary schools.
The district’s Programming and Facilities Planning Committee (PFP) reviewed and refined five boundary and program location options and presented the options during a community engagement process in the fall of 2019. More than 150 parents, students and staff participated in this consultation. Thank you to all those who came out to the public forums, completed the survey, sent emails to the District and shared their opinions. We appreciate your feedback which has helped shape our direction.
To manage anticipated growth across the region, consideration must be given to capitalizing on the existing and projected space to balance enrolment primarily on the east side of Highway 99. The options considered the magnitude of the growth and overcrowding in the region. During the consultation process, there were many opposing community desires that were identified in the community forums, online surveys and emails. Staff considered community feedback, and, will be implementing the following changes:
Effective January 2021 (or upon inception of instruction of Site 180):
Effective September 2021 (or upon inception of instruction of Site 206):
The Surrey Board of Education received staff’s report at the Public Board Meeting on Feb 12th and have had many opportunities for input and guidance as we have proceeded consistent with the Board’s direction for the district.
We wish to extend our thanks to the community and stakeholders for your input and participation in these consultations and we look forward to opening new schools and to supporting our programs in South Surrey/White Rock. We also look forward to continuing to plan for further expansion in Dart’s Hill and Redwood Heights in our long range planning.

South Surrey Consultation 2019 FAQ is now online, including questions from the three community forums at Morgan Elementary, Hall's Prairie Elementary and Sunnyside Elementary. The FAQ will be updated as more information becomes available.

As the walls are coming up at new elementary schools in South Surrey, the process of establishing new catchment boundaries has begun – and we want students and parents to have a say.
Site 180 (17325 2nd Avenue) and
Site 206 (16666 23rd Avenue) are scheduled to open in 2021 and will have space for 1,177 students, easing overcrowding at nearby elementary schools.
The goal in developing new catchment boundaries is to ensure student numbers are balanced between nearby elementary schools. In South Surrey, these include East Kensington, Hall’s Prairie, Morgan, Pacific Heights, Rosemary Heights and Sunnyside elementary schools.
The district has created five options for the South Surrey consultation. All options aim to finding that balance, while also taking into consideration future residential growth and Choice Program locations.
This consultation will be an opportunity to define the culture and character of new school communities. Parent and student input are an important part of this process.
The catchment boundary options for South Surrey can be reviewed here online and in a downloadable
Information Package. There are maps illustrating the proposals, with accompanying charts that provide further details about each option.
Input is being sought via an
online survey. The survey is also available in written form at the individual schools, or can be printed
here and returned to your school. Feedback can also be submitted by email to
A series of community forums is scheduled to share information with the South Surrey communities about the potential boundary changes. Each forum runs from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m.:
November 18 – Morgan Elementary, 3366 156A Street November 19 – Hall’s Prairie Elementary, 18035 8th Avenue November 20 – Sunnyside Elementary, 2828 158th Street
The information presented will be the same at each forum. Feedback is being accepted until the consultation period ends December 18.

Surrey Schools is excited about the opening of two brand new elementary schools in the South Surrey community.
Site 180, located at 17325 2nd Avenue, and
Site 206, located at 16666 23rd Avenue, are scheduled to open in September 2021.
These beautiful new facilities will provide inviting and engaging learning environments for students and serve as hubs for the evolving South Surrey community. These two new elementary schools will also relieve the enrolment pressures at Sunnyside, Pacific Heights and Hall’s Prairie elementary schools.
As part of the process for opening new schools, the School District establishes catchment boundaries. Boundary reviews will include the East Kensington, Hall’s Prairie, Morgan, Pacific Heights, Rosemary Heights and Sunnyside communities.
As parents and guardians living in the South Surrey community, the School District is inviting your input and feedback on catchment boundary options. The School District is coordinating a consultation process in early November so you can easily contribute your views and suggestions.
In early November, please watch for further information being sent home. A dedicated website will be available for information and comments at this time.
In addition, evening forums will be held in mid-November for South Surrey-area school communities to share their feedback and ideas about the potential boundary changes. Times and locations of the consultation forums will be included in the early November information package that will be sent home.
The consultation concludes December 18th. Community contributions and comments will be summarized by staff in a report to the superintendent, which will be presented to the Board of Education in the spring. Please feel free to share your input and suggestions during the consultation process.
Surrey Schools look forward to hearing from you.
