NEW CATHOLIC SCHOOL FUNDING A WIN FOR EDUCATION: PUBLIC BOARD DIRECTOR 2/7/2018 1:54:27 PM
Catholic schools in Renfrew will benefit from recently announced provincial funding. But will the new elementary school and the expansion for the high school undercut enrolment for Renfrew's aging public schools? We spoke with Pino Buffone, Director of Education for the Renfrew County District School board and he admits though there's competition for enrolment, the board is always pleased to see improvements in education for our community, no matter which school gets the funding.
Renovations for RCI and RCI-S are in development and the Director also said they're currently applying for funding for childcare spaces for public schools within the county.
