Student Numbers Drop

Fewer students in the Anglophone South School District in the school year just ending means fewer teachers.

Enrollment numbers are down by 650 and Superintendent Zoe Watson says the one place where there had been increases, the Kennebecasis Valley, the numbers have levelled off. 

On the other side of the coin the number of foreign students this year at 15 schools exceeded 500. They're here from China,  Mexico, Colombia, Brazil and Europe.

The school district is hoping the foreign student programme will be expanded next year to 20 schools.
