There was a time when valley schools were bursting with students. That’s not the case anymore.

Superintendent Marilyn Marquis Foster provided preliminary enrolment numbers for student enrolment in the Robson Valley.

Valemount Elementary has 144 students, down from over 150 last fall.

Valemount Secondary has 83, compared to 80 last fall.

McBride Centennial Elementary has 69 students down from 73 last fall.

McBride Secondary has 58, down from 68 last fall.

The Goat has been given permission to interview principals from all four schools about their plans for the year and how they are managing. We have one such interview this week, more will come next week. Stay tuned.
