Northern MB high school closes for weeks due to mould issue

Garden Hill First Nation High School in Northern Manitoba has been closed for weeks due to a mould issue, reports CBC, and community members are calling for the issue to be addressed as soon as possible. The school, which has around 500 students, closed on October 9th. The community has not found another suitable space in which to teach the students. Garden Hill Chief Charles Knott expressed frustration with the government’s response and has reached out to Indigenous Services Canada’s regional director general to ask for assistance. “We need our students to go back to school,” said Knott. “[Students] have been missing school for the past three years, two years. When the pandemic hit, kids weren’t in school, and now this.”
