School BooksThe Manitoba government is renovating and building 21 classrooms across the province in an effort to create smaller class sizes.

Eight schools will share the $12.4 million the province is spending to accommodate smaller kindergarten to Grade 3 classes.

“This investment in smaller class sizes will give students more one-on-one time with their teachers, which will help to build a strong foundation for future learning and ensure students can succeed academically,” said Education and Advanced Learning Minister James Allum. “Smaller class sizes in early grades enrich and enhance learning, and the benefits last throughout a student’s educational path.”

The schools seeing additions include Harold Hatcher, Assiniboine, Crestview, Blumenort, Niverville, South Oaks, École Centrale and R.F. Morrison.
