The Observer explores the temporary school

The Quesnel Junior School has moved into its temporary location at the old Maple Drive School, which closed more than a decade ago following a decline in enrollment.

The move is temporary, while the school board and district work to complete a report for the Ministry of Education on the possibility of a new or renovated school moving forward.

School starts with an orientation for the grade eight students on Wednesday, Sept. 5. Classes start for all students the following day, Thursday, Sept. 6.

More to come in the Wednesday (Aug. 29) issue of the Quesnel Cariboo Observer.
