Eastern Townships School Board Chairman Michael Murray’s report at Tuesday evening’s Council of Commissioners meeting was focused on the need for a new school in Drummondville. “The cafeteria is being used as classroom space,” Murray said, adding that Pre-K classes are being held in a church basement across the street from the school. Enrollment has been increasing steadily in recent years and the school is currently bursting at the seams. The board is hoping for approval from the ministry for a new building sooner than later. Murray said the process to have a new school built would take around two years. The board announced the appointment of Marie-Andreé Cloutier as Assistant Director of the International Student Program. In her Director General’s report, Kandy Mackey talked about intentionality of excellence and the importance of a positive mindset. See full story in the Thursday, March 1st edition of The Record.
