Students are back to class at Souris Regional School this Fall. Construction began in Spring 2013 on the 125,000 square foot, $20 million, K-12 school. The school features a new K-6 academic wing, new music wing, culinary arts teaching area and enhanced IT and trades spaces.
Government is committed to helping students graduate with the required knowledge, skills, and attitudes for post-secondary education, apprenticeship programs, and the labour market, says Education and Early Childhood Development Minister Alan McIsaac.
The Province of Prince Edward Island and Canadian Tire are partnering on Active at School, an initiative to encourage physical activity in Island students before, during and after school.
Skills, Aboriginal education, improved student performance, and partnership were the focus of the 103rd meeting of the Council of Ministers of Education, Canada (CMEC), in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island.
Five Island junior high students represented Prince Edward at the Canada Wide Science Fair recently, earning three medals.
