SRSB Approves Motions on Antigonish Education Centre and H.M. MacDonald Elementary School

Port Hawkesbury, NS:— During a Special Board Meeting of the Strait Regional School Board this evening, the School Board voted in favour of advising the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development that it will require Antigonish Education Centre, a Grades Primary to 4 school in Antigonish, after its P3 lease expires.  In addition, a motion to permanently close H.M. MacDonald Elementary School on June 30, 2017, was defeated.

“On behalf of the Strait Regional School Board, I would like to thank the School Options Committee for the Dr. J.H. Gillis Regional High School Feeder System, the school review facilitator and members of the school communities for the tremendous amount of time and energy they have dedicated to the school review process,” said Francine Boudreau, Chair, Strait Regional School Board.
