New Schools

We're currently building two new schools!

Location: West Langford PEXSISEN

PEXSISEN Elementary School 
Pronounced:  PUXXSEESUNG (PUXX/SEE/SUNG) is a Lekwungen and SENCOTEN word gifted to SD62 by Songhees First Nation. It means “the opening of hands” or “to have one’s hands wide open”.

Centre Mountain Lellum Middle School
Pronounced:  LAYLUM (LAY/LUM) was gifted to SD62 by Sc’ianew Nation (Beecher Bay) and carries the meaning of house and the idea of community, where we raise our children.

See a fly through video of the designs here!

Centre Mountain, located near the Westshore Parkway is the result of a treaty settlement between Sc’ianew, Metchosin and Langford, as well as provincial and federal governments.

Capital Projects

As a growing school district, we are always planning ahead for future growth. This means that our Board of Education is always  communicating with the government to work towards securing funding for more schools.

This chart provides updates on SD62's major capital projects including new school construction, seismic replacements projects, and expansions.

Updates will be posted to each project page linked in project name, and may include text, photos, videos and applicable links to other websites.
