The Grande Prairie Catholic School District is making way for more students later this fall.

The province is providing them with three new modular classrooms, which the board has decided to match, to the tune of $1.125 million.

Superintendent Karl Germann says the classrooms will help get them through the space crunch until their new school is ready in 2016.

“Three of them go onto Mother Teresa, because that’s the school we’re getting ready to expand out to as high as 750 kids. The other ones, two get allocated to St. Gerard, and one to St. Mary’s in Sexsmith. We really have no flexible space, but we’re trying not to purchase to much equipment before our new school arrives.”

Germann says the six classrooms have already been ordered, and will hopefully be ready for installation over the summer.
