Renovations and changes for Brooks Library

Regular users of the Brooks Public Library likely noticed some changes to the inside of the facility earlier this month.

Work continues towards a new school in Brooks, as the contractor for the Private-Public Partnership has been chosen.
ABC Schools Partnership is the partner building 12  schools in the province, including the one in Brooks.

A natural health and healing expo is a great opportunity for individuals to learn more about alternative healing and natural health options in Medicine Hat and area and for the first time will include a full day of workshops.

Prairie Rose School Division schools are looking to learn through travelling this year. To that end, the board of trustees approved three trip requests at the October 9 regular meeting.

The Claresholm and District Transportation Society (CDTS) helps transport people to and from many locations, but is seeking funding from various town councils to be able to continue to do so.

While there is always some improvement to be made, overall officials with Prairie Rose School Division (PRSD) are pleased with how their students continue to perform well on both diploma exams and provincial achievement testing.

Fears that students taking classes through video conferencing weren’t receiving the same kind of education have been alleviated with the most recent provincial achievement testing (PAT) results.

Growing up under the influence of artistic parents it shouldn’t be surprising Deb Elkink followed in their path.
