‘Ma’ Murray School hopes to hold opening ceremony by early September

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. –  The Peace River North School Board discussed a plan for the opening ceremonies of the new Margaret ‘Ma’ Murray School at a meeting on Monday.

The Board pitched the idea of holding the opening ceremony on August 27th, but that could be pushed back until September if Board Trustees were not able to attend. The School Board will also take suggestions from the City of Fort St. John, the Ministry of Education, and BC Hydro on when they think the ceremony should take place, as all three organizations made sizable contributions to the new school.

Peace River North MLA Dan Davies and Peace River South MLA Mike Bernier have agreed to tour the school on June 12th, after which they will take part in a meeting with School Board members.

The Board also briefly discussed community facilities such as a daycare that would be incorporated in another new Elementary school that is proposed for the City’s Northeast side. Board Chair Erin Davies said that the Ministry of Education has been pushing to have a daycare included in the new school, but has not volunteered to fund it, which has raised questions from the Board. Funding for the daycare will be brought up during the June 12th meeting with the two MLA’s.
