Planned Kimberley Private School Educates Public on its Progress

Purcell International Education addressed attendees of a question and answer session and feel as though concerns may have been cleared up surrounding a proposed private school with a focus on elite athletics in Marysville.


Members of the public attended an information session on Thursday night to ask PIE questions about the planned campus.


“The community is supportive, and community members have offered suggestions and ideas,” said PIE President Duncan Macleod. “The collaborative potential of something like this is limitless. The more people that come forward with great ideas, the better the projects is going to be when it’s realized.”


According to Macleod, the budget for phase one of the project is set at less than $20 million even though it launched with a planned budget of $60 million. Further expansion is planned when student populations exceed 300.


“Our initial funding plan got shelved, as a result of that, we came up with a new way of moving forward. Part of that includes incremental building and modular construction,” MacLeod said. “We’re going to build and grow as the students enroll.”


According to Macleod, the school will have at least 50% of the student body coming from outside of B.C.  Despite it being a private school, sports facilities on campus will still be available to local students and athletic clubs.


Macleod also added that int increase in population from students will provide opportunities for local businesses.


He added that he feels benefits will extend beyond Kimberley and Marysville.


“We’re going to be able to offer a suite of clubs and sports after school that’s on par with big metro centres,” said MacLeod.”As a result of that, it’s going to ripple through the educational experience of the young people in these communities. The amenity creation part takes that and extends it to the community as a whole.”


Macleod added that despite offering more athletic opportunities, PIE will not compete with existing programs.


He added that the school will be focused on providing quality education, beyond making a profit.


“This is not just a business. We’re not going to rack and stack kids there just because it’s good business,” explained MacLeod. “The reason we’re doing this in this community is to realize a mutual benefit and create opportunities to build amenities. It actually would have been a lot easier for us to get investors if we agreed to put this anywhere west of Chilliwack.


The school is planned to have a large international student body, and Macleod feels the interaction of different cultures will be beneficial.


“The more diverse a program is, the better it is for the Canadian kids that are participating and the international students who are attending as well,” said MacLeod.


While the school will take up some of the Kimberley Golf Course, Purcell International Education said it will ensure the property stays an 18 hole course.


Kimberley City Council recently agreed to a map amendment to allow for the next phase of planning. MacLeod added that more information sessions will likely take place as the project progresses.

Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become.要有勇气去追随你的心和直觉。它们总是知道你真正想要成为什么。——斯蒂夫·乔布斯(Steve Jobs,苹果创始人兼CEO)我叫Ginger,是一个来自广州的95后,这是我前往加拿大追寻梦想的故事。每一个留学生及其家长都被人问过:为什么送孩子出国?我爸爸妈妈或许在下决定的那一瞬间就已经有了答案:为了她有更好的成长和人生。但我却着着实实地走过了五年的高山低谷,才明白父母的良苦用心,也明白了“更好的成长和人生”其实不是很多人印象中那种“树挪死人挪活”一句话就能概况的简单过程。(Ginger)他们说:我是差生从小,我就是中国传统意义上的“差生”——因为理科成绩不好,我在班上...
