There was a double celebration at East Hill Elementary School in Rivière-des-Prairies on October 26, marking the long awaited expansion of their facility and the pre-launch of a book being translated into Italian by students. EMSB officials joined by the Member of the Quebec National Assembly for LaFontaine, Tony Tomassi, formally cut the ribbon for the new classrooms that have been built. Immediately following the ceremony to mark the building expansion, the EMSB, the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada and the Italian Consulate honoured Cycle 3 students at East Hill for their work in the Italian translation of a book called A Friend in Hope which will be published in May.
