Record Staff – The Eastern Townships School Board (ETSB) welcomed the announcement, Thursday, that the provincial government will be investing $13.2 million in the construction of a new English elementary school in Drummondville. The announcement, made by Quebec’s Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, Minister Responsible for the Centre-du-Québec Region and MNA for Johnson, André Lamontagne, was made as a part of a $61 million in school expansion projects across the Central Quebec region. “We are very pleased that the Minister has recognized the need for a new elementary school to serve the population that has chosen to attend an Anglophone school in Drummondville. We pride ourselves on taking innovative approaches to student learning and the current school did not meet the needs of our students to learn and of our educators to offer the best environment possible,” said ETSB Chariman Michael Murray.
