Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Ma­gog

Or­ford MNA Pierre Reid, in the com­pany of ETSB pres­i­dent Michael Mur­ray and CSS pres­i­dent Jean-Philippe Bac­hand, an­nounced in­vest­ments of $2,417,916 for ren­o­va­tions in schools in the Or­ford rid­ing, all to be done in 2016.

Lo­cal projects in­clude: $125,000 to fix the ex­te­rior walls of North Hat­ley Ele­men­tary; $100,000 to re­place light­ing at Princess El­iz­a­beth Ele­men­tary School; $515,916 for ma­jor work to Notre-Dame-des-Erables school; $730,000 for ma­jor work to Sainte Margeu­rite school; and $125,000 to La Ruche high school to re­place ven­ti­la­tion units.

“Schools are im­por­tant en­vi­ron­ments for our chil­dren and for the per­son­nel who work there. They must be in good shape and safe. This is why our gov­ern­ment, along with the school boards, are in­creas­ing our ac­tions to pre­vent, de­tect and cor­rect prob­lems in teach­ing es­tab­lish­ments. The more at­trac­tive our schools are, the more our youth will bloom,” com­mented the Min­is­ter of Ed­u­ca­tion, Re­cre­ation and Sport, Se­bastien Proulx.
