New school in Membertou adds excitement to first day of classes

 MEMBERTOU — Most Cape Breton students went back to school Thursday, but students and staff were especially excited to enter the new $8.2-million Membertou Elementary School.

Membertou education director Darren Googoo said 101 students were enrolled last year in the old Maillard Street elementary school.

This year, because of the new school, the Primary-to-Grade-6 student population has increased more than 50 per cent.

“They’ve really taken to it,” Googoo said. “There were 161 students that came to school today, excited to be here and ready to learn. As an educator, you can’t ask for more than that.”

Membertou parents can choose to enrol their children in the public education system but are obviously pleased with the new school, which contains state-of-the-art technology in each classroom, said Googoo.
