Another new elementary school is on the way for Fort St John in an effort to match growing youth populations in the northeast.
The Peace Region capital is already set to open the new Margaret Ma Murray Elementary school to 365 students in September.
30.8 million dollars is being invested in the school by the province, while School District 60 will contribute a further 300 thousand.
Construction is slated to begin in 2019, with the new Northeast Elementary School opening its doors to 505 new students by 2021.
The 2 story school will be located across from the hospital on 112th Avenue.
