Joint School Rebuild Project
Ecole St. Pius X and Argyle School
Regina Public and Regina Catholic Schools are working with the Saskatchewan Ministry of Education to open a new joint elementary school facility on the existing Argyle School site in Regina, Saskatchewan. The new Kindergarten to Grade 8 joint school facility, once completed, will be the new home of the current Ecole St. Pius and Argyle School Communities.
This website is dedicated to providing both school communities with updates, as they become available, of the evolving project.
You are also welcome to contact the schools:

- The construction of the joint-use schools is expected to require phasing to work around the existing Argyle school, which will require staggered opening of the schools.
- The selection of the design team is expected to be announced in January 2020.
- School community consultations are expected to begin in February 2020.
- As part of the process to approve park space across from the current Argyle School building for parking, an information gathering process was completed and the feedback has been provided to the City of Regina.
The St. Pius/Argyle rebuild announced in March 2019 is a joint-use facility, and planning for this project continues. At this point, no decisions have been made regarding building size or placement, nor has parking been decided.
The current step the team is working on is choosing an architect. Once that is complete, the design team will meet with the school communities. Those engagements are expected in winter 2020.
At this point, the project does not have approval to move further toward construction.
A joint webpage will be developed to hold updates on this project, and will be updated as frequently as new information comes available, but likely about monthly
