Courtesy of School District #27 (Cariboo-Chilcotin):

At the closed meeting of the Board of Education on 24 February 2015, the Board of Education passed motions that will support the Board’s intention to replace 100 Mile House Elementary School.

Chair Tanya Guenther advises, “The Board of Education unanimously agreed to officially request approval from the Ministry of Education to provide a new elementary school for 100 Mile House. The Board has had the replacement of 100 Mile House Elementary School on its Five Year Capital Plan for over ten years [2001]. It’s time we move forward.”

The Board also passed a motion that, when approved by the Minister, the new build of the school will be located on the now closed 100 Mile Jr. Secondary School site. The Board will be writing to Minister Fassbender and extending an invitation for him to visit the Cariboo-Chilcotin and to advocate for the new 100 Mile House Elementary School.
