Maddaugh Elementary School in Clayton Heights will open soon.
The new school has a capacity for more than 600 kids and will officially open March 29.
“Our beautiful school … will welcome families this coming Monday, March 29th. We are excited to finally get to the finish/start line!” Maddaugh Elementary principal Antonio Vendramin wrote on Twitter via the school’s twitter account.
Surrey-Cloverdale MLA Mike Starchuk said in a press release families in Clayton North have been waiting for a new school to open up in the community. “We are ecstatic for it to finally become a reality for children in the neighbourhood.”
Honoured to call @MaddaughSD36 @Surrey_Schools my new home. Opening March 29 and yes … questioning everything we do, so that we do it for the right reason. #sd36learn @sd36cpo pic.twitter.com/lZwuGNZimi

“The Clayton area is one the fastest-growing communities in our school district,” said Laurie Larsen, chair, Surrey Board of Education. “Maddaugh Elementary is a much-needed addition to our school district that will ease capacity in neighbouring schools and provide a modern learning environment for our students.”
Maddaugh Elementary is located on 76 Avenue which, before 1957, was called Maddaugh Road.
