Students at Henry Hudson Elementary are a step closer to having a new seismically safer school with construction underway on a replacement that will include a neighbourhood learning centre.

The Province has invested approximately $33 million for this project, with the Vancouver School District contributing an additional $1 million.

The new school will be seismically safer, as well as more accessible, with the inclusion of elevators and parking for people with disabilities.

LEED Gold standards will make the building more energy efficient and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Students will remain in the original Henry Hudson Elementary while construction is underway. The new school is expected to be ready to welcome students in spring 2025.

With a capacity for about 400 students, the new building will be a one-for-one seat replacement of the existing school.
