It’s time to head back to school! With the 2013 provincial budget, our government announced renewed investments in teachers, schools and community recreation.

It is important that we invest in opportunities to provide children and families with better access to indoor and outdoor recreational opportunities, as well as a high quality education from preschool to post-secondary.

Investments in Fort Rouge include a new gym for École LaVérendrye, and added funding that will allow it not only to better serve the school, but also to serve the community with much-needed leisure space after school hours.

Earl Grey School will be upgrading the outside of its building. This is part of a school beautification project that the Parent Advisory Council is undertaking for their 100th anniversary.

We will also see changes at the Fort Rouge Co-op Day Nursery. They will be creating an outdoor nature-based playground, and in the heart of Earl Grey, the Community Centre will be upgrading its outdoor building.

Work is continuing on rebuilding the Mayfair Recreation Centre, bringing together funding from the municipal and provincial governments to create a much-needed community space for kids and families to learn, grow and play together.

These facilities and many others are an important piece of life in Fort Rouge. They bring people together, support active living and inspire a sense of pride in our community, and it is important that we help ensure they can continue to do so for future generations.

For more information on these investments please feel free to contact my office at Jennifer.Howard@YourManitoba.ca or by phone at 204-946-0272.
