St. Peter’s to get new heat­ing sys­tem

The Compass - - CLASSIFIED -

St. Peter’s El­e­men­tary in Up­per Is­land Cove will soon have a new elec­tri­cal heat­ing sys­tem, fol­low­ing a re­cent $231,895 ten­der awarded to H.J. Bartlett Elec­tric Inc. of Mount Pearl.

With this lat­est in­vest­ment, nearly $1.2 mil­lion has been spent on new roof­ing, win­dows and other im­prove­ments at St. Peter’s El­e­men­tary in re­cent years,” said Ed­u­ca­tion Min­is­ter Clyde Jack­man.

Work to re­place the heat­ing sys­tem will take place over the sum­mer months. It is one of more than 1,600 re­pairs and main­te­nance projects un­der­taken at schools in New­found­land and Labrador since 2004.

“This is good news for our stu­dents and staff, know­ing that their school is re­ceiv­ing more im­prove­ments,” said Glenn Lit­tle­john, MHA for Port de Grave. “Our gov­ern­ment is clearly com­mit­ted to pro­vid­ing a healthy and safe place for learn­ing in Up­per Is­land Cove, and in all of our com­mu­ni­ties.”

The school cel­e­brated its 50th an­niver­sary in 2011.
