SD52 to receive $1.5 Million from province towards capital projects

Charles Hays Secondary is one of four schools in the
Prince Rupert area to share in provincial funding 
for maintenance work this year

The British Columbia government has been distributing over 240 million dollars towards maintenance work for the province's schools this week, with the Prince Rupert school District set to receive 1.5 million towards a number of projects for infrastructure and transportation.

Noting how the program will support the province's Clean BC initiative, Minister of Education Jennifer Whiteside outlined the province's focus for the funding.

“Investments in schools are investments in student success, and we are putting more resources into buses, classrooms and schools so that students can thrive. That’s why our government continues to deliver on our commitment to support school districts in upgrading and maintaining their schools to ensure students are learning in safe, healthy environments.”

For School District 52 the funding will divided among four schools in the Prince Rupert area, Roosevelt,  Conrad, Pineridge and Charles Hays Secondary, as well there is for funding for a new bus for the District.
