The Matawa Learning Centre is welcoming students today to the start of classes.
Officials say most of the classrooms have been renovated in the city’s former Grandview Lodge.
Principal Brad Battison tells us they still have a number of big ticket items that need to be complete.
“For our student accomodation portion, we want, in the next couple of years, to build a gymnasium and we want to have an established trades program in the facility.”
The school residence is expected to be complete by next September.
Battison says they started renovations in May and there wasn’t enough time to build both the school and the residence in time for this school year.
