Education Minister Nancy Allan toured a south Winnipeg school on Wednesday to see its recent renovations.

École Viscount Alexander received $6.9 million in provincially-funded renos, including a complete exterior facelift with a new roof, energy improvements, improved building accessibility, increased window sizes and a new heating and ventilation system.

“We know that education is an investment in the future of our children and our province,” Allan said. “That’s why we’re working to give more students access to state-of-the-art learning environments where they can get the quality education they need to do well in school and in life.”

The French immersion school in Pembina Trails School Division caters to 287 students in Grades 5 to 8.

Lawrence Lussier, superintendent of the division, said the improvements will mean a better space for students to learn and grow.
