FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Government of British Columbia is putting $16.8 million towards partially replacing Wonowon Elementary School in Fort St. John, B.C.
The replacement will include upgrading the existing water well and filtration system and making the school more accessible by installing ramps as well as making space for 20 additional student seats within the school, a release said.
The province previously invested $58 million to the Peace River North School District to build a new gym at Upper Halfway Elementary, to be completed this fall, the new Anne Roberts Young School, completed in September 2020, and Ma Murray School, completed in September 2018.
Construction of the Wonowon Elementary School upgrades is set to begin in summer 2024 and is projected to be ready for students in fall 2025.
