Education Minister Rob Fleming announced today that the government will be providing funding to Manoah Steves elementary for renovations.
The government has invested $12.8 million to make the elementary school earthquake safe.
Especially in the wake of the two earthquakes off the coast of Vancouver Island, the element of preparedness in case of an emergency is important.
Manoah Steves Elementary school’s structure has been standing since the 1960’s and some parts of the school require further renovations to make the building safer for the children and staff.
Minister Fleming says the school can expect more than just a safer building.
