The provincial government today officially opened the new francophone school, École BorÉale, in Happy Valley-Goose Bay.
Education Minister Darin King, Labrador Affairs Minister John Hickey, Conseil scolaire francophone director Michel Genest and Happy Valley-Goose Bay Mayor Leo Abbass took part in the event.
"This new school is one of many being constructed across Newfoundland and Labrador which will provide children and youth with quality learning environments," King said. "The new École BorÉale will serve generations of francophone children in this region, offering excellence in educational programming in their own language and culture."
The provincial government invested $2.2 million for the new facility which replaced the former school. An additional $300,000 was provided under the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Agreement for Minority-Language Education and Second Official Language Instruction for a pre-school facility to be located in the new building where early childhood learning will offered to francophone children.
Mista Shipu Construction Ltd. built the school, which consists of a special needs suite, a resource centre, a multi-purpose room, an administrative area, a staff lounge and three classrooms, one of which has a moveable wall to create a larger space.
