As  part of Budget 2018, government is replacing École Le Ruisseau in Brooks so local francophone students have a state-of-the-art learning environment. 

 

The replacement K-12 school will be able to accommodate 225 students when it opens. It will also offer specialty instruction areas for career and technology studies, science, music and physical education – something not available in the school’s existing facility.
“One of our priorities is to continue to provide flexible, well-designed learning facilities for communities across the province. Brooks will soon be home to a new, replacement École Le Ruisseau, designed to meet and adapt to changing educational and community needs," said David Eggen, Minister of Education.
New replacement schools incorporate advanced systems and features such as large windows that provide natural lighting and ventilation systems that improve air quality and circulation, creating a healthy learning and working environment for students, teachers and others who use the schools.
"On behalf of Conseil scolaire FrancoSud, I would like to thank the Alberta government for its support in the project of building a new francophone school in Brooks. We welcomed with great joy and satisfaction the announcement made on March 22 with regards to the construction of a new facility for École Le Ruisseau," noted Louis Arseneault, président, Conseil scolaire Francosud.
École Le Ruisseau will also be eligible for solar panel funding, which will reduce the school’s energy costs and contribute to Alberta’s commitment to help the environment.
