School and Colborne Public School was awarded to Wayne and Harold Smith Construction, which bid $936,770.

The project includes renovating the existing family and resource centre space
to create two kindergarten classrooms with washrooms. This space is adjacent to the existing kindergarten classrooms, so all kindergarten spaces will stay together.
