About 650 Glace Bay students are closer to enjoying the benefits of a new and healthy school, thanks to a $16-million investment by the province. Premier Rodney MacDonald and Education Minister Karen Casey helped students, teachers, school board representatives and government officials turn the first sod today, Oct. 27, on a new junior high school. “Educating for good jobs in Nova Scotia is a priority for government and providing our students with the best learning environment possible is just one way we are meeting that long-term commitment,” said Premier MacDonald. “This investment will help our students learn and grow so they can be world leaders in innovation and collaboration.” A new junior high school for Glace Bay was announced in 2003. It will be built on Wallace Road, which was selected earlier this year. Sites get rigorous geological, traffic and environmental assessments before selection. “Finding, evaluating and determining a safe and appropriate site has taken longer than we would have liked in this case,” said Ms. Casey. “I appreciate the diligence and hard work that helped us arrive here today.” The school will replace Morrison and St. Michael junior high schools, when completed in 2010. The Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal will oversee the school’s design and construction. The school is being built through the province’s eight-year, $400-million capital-construction program.
