School expansion coming to Langley

June 17, 2024

The growing community of Langley will gain 200 more student spaces at Nicomekl Elementary school as part of the government’s plan to expand schools faster.

“As British Columbia’s population grows, we are finding the best solutions to welcome more students into new classrooms as quickly as possible,” said Rachna Singh, Minister of Education and Child Care. “Our government remains committed to building and improving schools in the Langley School District, and this new addition will serve students for decades to come.”

The addition will include eight classrooms connected by corridors and storage for students’ personal belongings. The use of prefabricated construction means it will be built quickly, with the new addition expected to be ready for students by fall 2025.

“I am thrilled that students in Langley city will soon benefit from brand new, state-of-the-art classrooms,” said Andrew Mercier, MLA for Langley. “Ensuring students have access to modern, safe learning environments is critical to meeting the needs of our community.”
