Living and Learning Together
"Clear your mind of can't" - Samuel Johnson
On Friday (Dec. 6) the Province announced funding for a new school on Hornby island, as well as major upgrades to Lake Trail Middle School.
“All students deserve to learn in safe and inspiring schools that give them the best chance to succeed,” said Rob Fleming, Minister of Education, at a press conference held at Lake Trail. “With new, modern facilities coming to Courtenay and Hornby Island, thousands of students will have a better learning experience for generations to come.”
The Government of B.C. is providing $10.4 million for a new, 95-seat Hornby Island Community School, replacing the previous building that was lost in a fire in August 2018.
