As of September 2017, the Westgate $10.3 million Inspiring Spaces Capital Campaign building project is complete. As of July 1st, 2018 we have just $2.4 million left to raise.
Thank you to all the generous donors who have helped us get this far! With interest rates rising, it is more important that ever to pay off the remaining amount. This is where you come in….
The school has been revolutionized by gaining wheelchair accessibility, a new atrium, fitness centre, choral space, and science lab.
With the installation of a central elevator that opens up all floors of the school to students and visitors, Westgate is now a universally accessible campus. It was vitally important to create an infrastructure that removed any limits when it came to accessing our space.
Enclosed in floor-to-ceiling glass, this bright and sunny common area serves as an inviting entrance to our school and makes all who pass through the front doors feel welcome. Located adjacent to the new atrium is the revamped administrative suite.
At Westgate, we motivate our students to develop good habits around wellness and active living. Now, with our new fitness centre, we can combine athletics with outdoor recreation as well as opportunities for individuals to carry out their own active living routines on daily basis.
The Westgate choirs and bands have earned many awards due to the amazing talent of our students and the outstanding teachers/directors who lead them. By upgrading to a new rehearsal space, our musicians can flourish amongst the vaulted ceilings and panoramic view of the Assiniboine River.
An additional science lab has been created in order to inspire scientific exploration. Here, our students are better equipped to delve into their passion for science, and develop a greater understanding of their physical world.

A Message from the Committee...
First, we want to thank all donors who have helped us get this far. While we have raised a substantial portion of the funds required already, we are not yet finished — we still have a significant amount to raise & interest rates to battle. It is a goal we will achieve, however, because we have you, our determined, dedicated fellow community members.
We’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas about how to make this capital campaign a success.
