LETTER: French public school gets own bus

Reader Mee-len Dickie is grateful to the Conseil scolaire francophone (SD 93)

French school Les Sentiers Alpin has finally acquired their own contract with reliable A1 Bus Ltd. and now offers transportation from Glade to Nelson round-trip for their students.

The Conseil scolaire francophone (SD 93) is a system that affords to all children the possibility of continuing their education in French and having a positive impact on their future.

A big thanks to Kelly Grittner, CSF transportation consultant, for making this possible.

It is amazing to feel the commitment of the CSF and to recognize the quality of its services and academic excellence.

As a Francophone parent, I am confident that I have made the judicious choice on behalf of my child.

Mee-len Dickie
