Community Needs Remain Top Priority in LRSD

Addressing Enrolment Challenges in South St. Vital

On January 7th, the Louis Riel School Board approved the recommendations for George McDowell School to become a single-track French Immersion Middle Years (Grades 6-8) school, and for École St. Germain and École Julie-Riel to become grades K-5 schools (formerly K-8).

The parents of students currently attending George McDowell School will have options for their children to attend one of a number of neighbouring schools – Dr. D.W. Penner School, H.S. Paul School, Highbury School and possibly Samuel Burland School.

For more information, see the press release on last night’s decision: Community Needs Remain Top Priority in LRSD.
