Update, Nov. 8, 2016

Students and staff at Arrow Heights Elementary will enjoy a more comfortable learning environment with completed heating and ventilation upgrades.

On Wednesday, Nov. 2, the B.C. Ministry of Education announced the school would benefit from $290,000 in funding to fix “water leak issues at the school.”

After this announcement was published in the Review, the Review was contacted by School District #19 superintendent Mike Hooker, who explained the funding actually went towards replacing the school’s HVAC system.

“The enhancement was to fully upgrade and replace the heating, ventilation and air conditioning system at Arrow Heights,” said Hooker.

There are no water leak issues at the school.

The funding was provided through the province’s school enhancement program, targeted to help school district’s extend the life of schools through improvement projects including upgrades to plumbing, electrical and heating systems, windows, safety enhancements and more.

School districts must apply for funding and projects are selected based on need, priority and how well they support student learning and safety.
