The new home of St. Joseph Elementary School is currently an empty lot, but come September, the site will house a building full of students.

Wednesday morning marked the official groundbreaking ceremony for the new school, on the same property as the existing school.

“This project has been in the works for close to a decade, and considerable work has happened behind the scenes, especially in the last eight months,” said Mike Jacobs, building chairman.

The school will be constructed from 28 modules, which are currently being built at Britco in Penticton.
