FREDERICTON (GNB) – Premier Brian Gallant was at Royal Road Elementary School in Fredericton this morning to mark the first day of school.

“We understand the importance New Brunswickers place on a good quality education,” said Gallant. “With the release of the education plans, we are working hard on this priority and, with your support, we are getting things done to ensure our children receive the education they deserve.”

Gallant welcomed the students as they arrived at school, and then toured the school.

The school is part of the Anglophone West School District. First opened in 1982, it has 413 students from kindergarten to Grade 5.
