The addition of two new schools in the Anglophone South School District is happy news for the District Education Council.

Rainbow Park will be the new location for a new kindergarten to grade 8 school in the south-central peninsula.

The new school will replace the aging Prince Charles and St. John the Baptist/King Edward schools,

Superintendent Derek O’Brien said the Department of Education has specifications for new schools.

“Even though they are guidelines and specifications about what its schools will look like and what can be put in them, the school community and the people here at the district level with have involvement,” O’Brien said.

Partial funding was also announced for a new school to replace Centennial School and Hazen White/St. Francis School.

Roger Nesbitt, chair of the District Education Council, called word of the new schools “terrific news,” adding he wished every student could have a new state-of-the-art school.
