Hilwie Hamdon School Construction

Very excited to see all the progress on the new Hilwie Hamdon K-9 School being built in Edmonton-Calder. The new school will take 900 students from the surrounding neighbourhoods. I was also so proud to note the school is named after Hilwie who was one of Edmonton’s first Lebanese Muslim immigrants and was instrumental in raising money to build the first mosque in Canada—one of the first in North America. An inspring individual and I'm so glad EPSB chose to honour her in the naming of the new school. There will be an open house for families and community members to provide information about the new school on Tuesday Mar 14th at 6:30 pm at Elizabeth Finch School. I hope to see you there!
