Design Committee

Thames Valley District School Board established a Design Committee to give the school community a voice in the schematic design phase of the process. Schematic design includes the general layout, basic concept drawings and understanding of project requirements and goals. The Design Committee convened on April 21 and May 10, 2022.

At the Design Committee meeting on May 10, Eagle Heights PS students shared their ideas about what they would like to see in their school's expansion. Their ideas included actionable suggestions like a multi-faith room, arts and crafts room, larger library and more classrooms.

Funding approved for Eagle Heights PS expansion

The Ministry of Education has announced funding for a major expansion of Eagle Heights Public School in London.

“This is great news for students, families and community members in the Eagle Heights Public School community,” said Thames Valley Education Director Mark Fisher. “We are very excited the Ministry of Education has supported this much-needed expansion.”

The $7.2-million project will provide space for 300 students, including renovations to rightsize the school’s library and administration area to address enrolment pressure in west London.

Eagle Heights PS, built for 680 students, currently requires 18 portable classrooms to accommodate the school’s enrolment of more than 1,000 students. 

“We are so pleased with the Ministry of Education’s support for our students and their families in west London,” said TVDSB Board Chair Lori-Ann Pizzolato, who praised Thames Valley’s planning staff for presenting the Ministry with a detailed business case for the project.

“With growth taking hold across London, our government recognizes the importance of providing students and children with quality education opportunities, which is why we are investing in expanding schools and improving ventilation,” said Minister Lecce. “This investment is part of our ongoing commitment and plan to build, expand, and modernize schools and child care spaces across our province, especially for London families. Once complete, the projects will leave a lasting legacy that will benefit working families in London for years to come.”

The project is part of a provincewide investment of more than $600 million to support new school and child care spaces that were recently announced by Stephen Lecce, Minister of Education.
