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.

尽管全球流行病摧毁了经济,在世界各地激起了民族主义,加拿大人对移民和难民越来越开放。民调公司“环境研究所”的一项新研究发现,尽管仍有数百万人失业,而且加拿大面临严峻的经济前景,但加拿大人的态度变得越来越积极。“这些观点并非昙花一现。它们似乎已经根深蒂固并广泛传播,”“环境”的执行董事Andrew Parkin说。自1976年以来,由环境学组织开展的“焦点加拿大”调查就定期对加拿大人进行抽样调查,以了解他们对这个问题的看法。10月初发布的最新结果首次表明,加拿大人更有可能拒绝移民没有采用加拿大价值观的想法。与此同时,绝大多数加拿大人仍然认为移民对加拿大经济至关重要,并不认为他们抢走了其他加拿大人的工作。近三分之一的加拿大人认为有太多的难民不是“真正的”难民,比1987年的79%大幅下降。Parkin说,研究人员很想知道最近的世界事件是否已经极大地改变了人们的看法。“一开始,我们认为Donal...
