Sangster Gets $2.1 Million for Seismic Upgrades

While Assistant Superintendents Dave Betts and Roberta Kubik & myself were in Vancouver at the BC School Superintendents Association annual conference last Thursday, Minister Ida Chong (on behalf of Minister McRae) presented $2.1 million for seismic upgrades to Sangster Elementary. The $2.1 million will go into reconstructing certain parts of the school to make sure the school is up to earthquake standards.

Board Chair, Wendy Hobbs, explained to the kids that although their school was safe, these upgrades would make their school even safer for generations to come. Big thanks to SD62 Secretary Treasurer Harold Cull for being the MC, as well as to Sangster Principal Maureen Lauren for organizing a fun event!
