Earlier this year, plans were announced to consolidate three older schools in core neighbourhoods, Pleasant Hill, King George and Princess Alexandra, into one school to be built on the current site of the Princess Alexandra school. The new school and community space received $29 million of funding and will be built near the existing Princess Alexandra School on Avenue H. The City of Saskatoon along with the Saskatoon Tribal Council Chief are working together to house the White Buffalo Youth Lodge and other community services in the new space. These could include programs run by Riversdale, King George, or Pleasant Hill Community Associations including a skating rink in winter and community programming and events throughout the year.
There is still time to give input and feedback about this exciting new project in our neighbourhood. You can contact the Riversdale Community Association via email at firstname.lastname@example.org to provide your input.
