Northeastern Manitoba First Nation’s school has ‘been condemned a couple times already’: education director
Mould, overcrowded classrooms and a lack of space are prompting calls for a new high school in Garden Hill First Nation.
The challenges come after officials in the northeastern Manitoba First Nation decided to have students repeat a grade in the 2021-22 school year, after the previous year was determined to be a loss due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
And last year, students were forced out of the high school for several weeks due to mould found in a wing of the junior high.
Dayna McDougall, a Grade 9 student who was recently elected chief of Garden Hill First Nation High School’s student council, said when the mould was discovered last year, all of the school’s students were impacted.
