The EMSB held an inauguration and ribbon cutting ceremony for the expansion of Dunrae Gardens Elementary School in Town of Mount Royal. Almost two years ago the provincial government provided the EMSB with $925,266 in funding for the construction of four new classrooms at the school. Pictured above in the ribbon cutting with students are Principal Francoise Barlier and (left to right) Governing Board Chair Linda Perez, Director General Antonio Lacroce, Deputy Director General Donald A. Reid and Commissioner Ron Paterson. Also, Ms. Barlier and students presented a gift to Constant Di Girolamo, who was the riding representative for former Mount Royal MNA Philippe Couillard who secured the funding. As well, Mr. Paterson shares a moment with Ms. Barlier and three of the school's former principals: Fran Rothman, Connie Primiano and Addy Petronko.
