A new school has opened in Blaine Lake. Students from Kindergarten to Grade 12 walked into their new school earlier this month.

This is a very exciting day and I know this is more than just a building, it’s a state-of-the art hub for students, teachers, staff and the community at large and will serve to protect the opportunities we have to live and learn in rural Saskatchewan,” said Premier Scott Moe.

The new $14 million facility replaces the Blaine Lake Composite School built in 1954 and will accommodate 150 students. The school features an outdoor learning area with local plants and welding and woodworking spaces.

This beautiful new school provides a very supportive learning environment for our students from Blaine Lake, Muskeg Lake Cree Nation, Marcelin and surrounding communities,” explained Prairie Spirit Board of Education Board Chair Bernie Howe.
