Bert Ambrose is receiving $500,000 and Robert Ogilvie is receiving $781,250.

This funding is aimed to replace aging furnaces with new boiler plants, and installing classroom unit ventilators with carbon dioxide control at both schools to ensure the school is safe and efficient to support student learning.

“Upgrading old furnaces with boiler plants and installing classroom units with carbon dioxide control ventilation is an efficient way to improve our learning institutions,” Peace River North MLA Pat Pimm said.

Phase one of the projects are expected to begin this year and finish by spring 2016, with phase two slated for early summer of 2016.
