New School Project Approved for Lanigan

June 25, 2020


We are very excited to have received approval for a new school building project in the community of Lanigan. This new school will see the consolidation of Lanigan Central High School and Lanigan Elementary School into a single K-12 building.


The consolidation of the Lanigan schools (Lanigan Central High 9-12 / Lanigan Elementary School K-8) will reduce the operating costs and ensure an efficient facility for the community and area.  Currently, Lanigan Central High School has no HVAC system for air exchanges.   


These schools are nearing the end of their life cycle. Major upgrades are pending for the heating systems and building envelope. The capital cost to retrofit the facility with an HVAC system would be better spent on a new facility for the next 50 years.

The Government of Saskatchewan has approved this project with a budget of approximately $30 million, as one of six new major infrastructure projects for school divisions in communities across the province. The timeline of the project and ground-breaking date will be determined in the coming weeks and months.


For Horizon School Division, this is an exciting opportunity to bring a new facility forward to support our students, staff, families, communities, and stakeholders. We wish to thank the advocacy of our staff, senior leadership, and Board for bringing this project to the attention of our government. And, we wish to thank the Government of Saskatchewan for their support.
