Sault school gets money from the province for expansion

H.M. Robbins public school in Sault Ste. Marie is getting $4.5 million from the provincial government to create more student and childcare spaces.

Sault Ste. Marie MPP, Ross Romano, said Friday the funding will be used for a school addition.

The aim is to create an additional 26 student and 64 childcare spaces.

The Algoma District School board said the new addition will facilitate a seamless transition for pre-schoolers into the system.
