Three new elementary schools in Surrey are slated to open later this year, and in the meantime, the public is invited to see what's planned for the buildings and school grounds at each site.

Sunnyside Elementary – a replacement school for the current facility near busy 152 Street and King George Boulevard – is the first of the three schools scheduled to open. The district anticipates the new school just blocks away at 2828 159 St. will be ready this September.

By December, it's expected Goldstone Park and Katzie elementary schools will also be opening their doors to students.

Katzie Elementary, in the booming Clayton neighbourhood of Surrey near 68 Avenue and 194A Street, will relieve pressure at Hazelgrove Elementary, which has about a dozen portables on site to accommodate the overflow of students.

Goldstone, located at 6287 146 St. in Newton, will relieve overcrowding at nearby schools such as Woodward Hill.

Meetings regarding each new school – where drawings and plans will be available for viewing and new principals will be on-hand – are planned this month.

• An information meeting about Katzie Elementary will be held at Hazelgrove Elementary (7057 191 St.) on Jan. 8, 7 p.m.

• A meeting about Goldstone will take place at Cambridge Elementary (6115 150 St.) on Jan. 15, 7 p.m.

• Sunnyside Elementary (15350 28 Ave.) is hosting a public meeting on Jan. 24, 7 p.m.
