VIDEO: Skilled Trades Funding For Forest Heights

A new skilled trades centre is just the start of some major renovations about to begin at Forest Heights Community School. The province has announced the Chester Basin school will also get a new roof, sprinkler system and energy-efficient lighting. The new additions are expected to cost $920,000 as part of the Dexter government's $15-million funding announced for the South Shore in August. Vice Principal John Doucette says the centre and renovations are a benefit for the future.

Forest Heights will be the second South Shore school to have a skilled trades centre. The program will be offered to students next September.
