Students and teachers in the Bible Hill area will benefit from a new state-of-the-art school for students in Primary to Grade 4.

“We are proud to continue our strong support for education,” said Zach Churchill, Minister of Education and Early Childhood Development. “This new school provides students with modern classrooms and will support them to achieve their goals.”

The minister joined students, teachers and staff today, Nov. 14, to celebrate the official opening of the Bible Hill Consolidated School.

More than 200 students are attending the school, which replaces the Bible Hill East Court Road and the Bible Hill Central Elementary, both more than 60 years old.

Students will benefit from a learning centre and a sensory room for students with special needs.

Government invested more than $14.5 million and worked closely with the Chignecto-Central Regional School Board and the community to build the school.

Bible Hill Consolidated School is located at 103 Pictou Road, Bible Hill.
