Funding for the new south Langford school was announced by the province back in June. The school is estimated to open in fall 2025 with room for 480 students.

Consultations are ongoing with Indigenous communities as the school district makes a decision on the name of the school.

SD62 asked for the public’s input during a public engagement session held at Pexsisen Elementary School on Wednesday (Feb. 15).

Various names were being considered, split into geography, Indigenous names and historical.

For historical names, the suggestions were Sarah Beckett, the former West Shore RCMP officer who was killed while on duty in 2016; John Horgan, former B.C. premier and Langford-Juan de Fuca MLA; Scott Manning, who died in 2020 after being principal at a number of SD62 schools; and Young, who served as the mayor of Langford for almost 30 years.
