New School for Lake Country

Construction will soon begin on H.S. Grenda Middle School, a state of the art school designed meet the needs of 600 students between the grades of 6 and 8. 

The new school will be located on a former 18-acre golf course behind George Elliot Secondary School on Bottom Wood Lake Road. It will be three stories high to maximize the amount of green space around the school. 

H.S. Grenda Middle School will be named after a respected teacher and coach who passed away suddenly in 2006. Construction is expected to be completed for the 2021 school year.

Records Set in Lake Country

Lake Country issued a record-setting number of permits last year valued at almost $100 million and construction continues to surge during the beginning of 2019. The building boom shows no signs of slowing down as development projects including Highlands at Lakestone and 190 new homes adjacent to Main Street draw residents who otherwise would have settled in Kelowna or West Kelowna.

While Lake Country has many draws, it’s what this community lacks that is also attractive.  Lake Country has a handle on homelessness and a recent count found not a single homeless person. As well, Lake Country residents are not subject to the controversial speculation tax applied to neighbouring Kelowna.
