provincial funding totaling $5.7 million.

"Saskatchewan Education is committing $24 million to over 100 school

"This continues the level of funding for school capital projects from

last year. The investment we are making in our schools, and in the

education of Saskatchewan children, is a good investment in the

province's future."

The Saskatchewan Rivers School Division will receive $300,000 in
