PERTH-ANDOVER (GNB) – Southern Victoria High School in Perth-Andover will reopen to students and staff in September.

"We have been committed to getting the students back into Southern Victoria High School as quickly as possible,” said Education and Early Childhood Development Minister Jody Carr. “Thanks to the co-operation and extra effort by all concerned, the school will be ready for the start of classes in September."

The work to restore the school for the fall includes structural repairs; replacement of ceilings, windows and doors; installation of new boilers; and repairs to the kitchen and vocational wings and change rooms.

"I would like to extend a special thank-you to Wes McLean, MLA for Victoria-Tobique, for his leadership in the community and for working with all partners to ensure students were able to return to SVHS this fall," said Carr.

"I thank the staff, students and communities of Tobique Valley High School in Plaster Rock and John Caldwell School in Grand Falls for welcoming staff and students from Southern Victoria High School during the past few months, allowing them to finish their school year,” said Carr. “I also thank the Tobique First Nation, through Chief Stewart Paul, which helped the Perth-Andover schools affected by the flood."
