Superintendent Blaine Veitch reported to the Flin Flon School Board meeting last night 42 Hapnot Collegiate students will be part of the sixth cycle of Programme for International Student Assessment testing which will be conducted from April 20th to May 29th. He noted their randomly selected students born in 1999 will join students in more than 70 countries including over 900 in Canada and 112 in Manitoba schools. This year’s focus will be on science.
Veitch also reported alarms have been installed or upgraded at all entrance doors of their schools. Additional cameras will be added where deemed necessary.
The Board added to their five year capital plan handicapped access to all floors at Ecole McIsaac School and Ruth Betts Community School as well as a bathroom downstairs at McIsaac where the classrooms for younger students are located. These are projects that can be financially supported by the Public Schools Finance Board.
