As part of the 2024 Provincial budget, the government announced that Wetaskiwin Regional Public Schools (WRPS) will receive School Planning Funding intended to support a new Kindergarten to Grade 8 School in the northeast area of the City of Wetaskiwin which would replace the existing Norwood School. 

Planning Funding is provided to support project readiness through site investigation work, further development of the project scope and partnership opportunities, to clarify potential risks and to identify mitigation strategies. With this funding WRPS aims to prepare this project for a smooth and swift transition to the Design and Construction stages once final funding is approved.

WRPS would like to express its sincere appreciation to the Provincial Government for recognizing a need in the community and for their support in providing the funding necessary to plan for a well-coming, vibrant and modern school facility which will provide a wide variety of educational opportunities for our students.
