Several areas of the school are getting coats of paint and flooring installed. Here are a few shots from a snowy March 2, 2018! Drywall is going up in the lower floor classroom spaces as well.
Teacher job postings are now available on http://www.prn.bc.ca/recruit/postings/ – closing soon! After closing, interviews will be schedule and hiring to follow.
Construction continues. Much of the interior is starting to take shape. The east wing is getting flooring and drywall continues on the lower floor of the west wing. The elevator is just about installed! We are hoping to see the snow gone as soon as possible so paving can get underway.

At the January 29th board meeting the Board of Trustees unanimously endorsed catchment area option C for the new Margaret Ma Murray Community school. This option will see the end of the English program at Ecole Central Elementary School of the Fine Arts. Depending on where they live within the former catchment, English program students will have options to attend the new school, Duncan Cran Elementary or Robert Ogilvie Elementary School.
District staff will be working through the details of the catchment decision and will post further information including school locator tools, as it becomes available.
Please see http://www.prn.bc.ca/?p=3419 for more details including maps and info on registration for K students. The catchment locator tool will be updated shortly.
We’ve created a new page for information updates at http://murray.prn.bc.ca/2018-2019-updates/. As we get word on catchment area, etc. we will post it there. We’ve created a separate page for registration info for new students in the 2018-2019 year to School District 60 (e.g. Kindergarten) at http://murray.prn.bc.ca/registration/. Neither page has any further information as of December 7, 2017 but please bookmark them and stay tuned!
