Officials gathered in Niverville on Friday, March 23 for the sod-turning ceremony for the new high school. Superintendent Randy Dueck and several Hanover School Division trustees were joined by Ian Wishart, Manitoba’s Minister of Education; Shannon Martin, MLA for Morris; Niverville Mayor Myron Dyck; Michael Fritschij of MCM Architects, the firm who designed the building; and Tony Bergagnini of Red Lake Construction, which is poised to begin construction. The group also included Niverville town counsellors, representatives of the Public Schools Finance Board, and students of Niverville Collegiate.

The actual turning of the sod was handled by Hannah Dunn and Elijah Pastoor, two Grade Nine students at NCI who will be among the first students to enter the new school in the fall of 2019.

Construction of the 66,700-square-foot facility is projected to take place over the coming 70 weeks at an estimated cost of $18,450,000. The first phase, to be completed in September 2019, will include all elements of the building except for the drama room, band room, and childcare facilities. The second phase will begin construction in January 2019 and be ready for use by the spring of 2020.
