Fixing Aging School Infrastructure A Priority

Time has taken its toll on many of our schools, and the Superintendent of the Anglophone South School District Zoe Watson says fixing up aging infrastructure or putting up new facilities is always high on their list of priorities.

Watson says while they recognize money is in short supply these days, they are concerned about the state of the schools because there are a lot of aging facilities. She says it's not necessarily about building brand new schools, but receiving money for repairs and renovations.

Watson says it's similar to your home. You have to keep upgrading and doing preventative maintenance to keep it in good condition.

The newly renovated and expanded Kennebecasis Park Elementary School officially opened in Rothesay just recently. The facility was originally built back in 1964.
