    York Regions schools got a funding boost of $41 million over the next two years to help repair and renew existing buildings.

    The funding was announced Tuesday morning by provincial Education Minister Mitzie Hunter in Vaughan at Joseph A. Gib-son Public School.

    The money breaks down to $25 million for the York public board and $16 million for the Catholic board.

    The minister said the cash will be used to repair roofs, update HVAC units and mod-ernize electrical and plumbing systems.

    Hunter said prior funding commitments to the York boards for repair and renewal funding now total $120 million over the next two years. She added the province will invest an additional $1.1 billion prov-incewide over the next two years for school renewal to bring the total up to $2.7 billion when existing funding is added in.

    This money is urgently needed. A school with a long list of repairs is not serving our students at a level they deserve, Hunter said.

    This funding means fresh asphalt, new flooring, enhanced play areas and more

    Forget Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, baby snapping turtles stole the show last Thursday at Seneca King Campus.

    More than a dozen of the turtles were released to their natural habitat by VIPs, including Seneca College president David Agnew, World Wildlife Federation Canada CEO, former Toronto mayor David Miller and King Township Mayor Steve Pellegri-ni.

    And the assembled guests on the scenic grounds of the Lady Eaton property at Sen-eca got to hear some turtle trivia and infor-mation from Dr. Sue Carstairs, the execu-tive and medical director of the Ontario Turtle Conservation Centre (OTCC).

    It was the OTCC that took the turtle eggs from a Seneca College staffer last fall, put them in an incubator for two months, hatched and raised the babies for several months and then set them free June 30.

    York schools get $41-million injection for repairs, upgrades

    all of the little things and some big things that exist in the background of a students everyday experience, she said.

    It is important for people to know that Ontarios world-class education system is

    being delivered in high-quality facilities.She said that since 2003, our govern-

    ment has invested more than $14 billion in school infrastructure, including 760 new schools and more than 735 additions and

    renovations. Were in the midst of provid-ing more than $12 billion over 10 years to Ontarios school boards. This funding will help build more new schools in areas of high growth.

    Of concern to the OTCC, Carstairs said, is that of the eight turtle species native to southern Ontario, seven are at risk and snapping turtles are considered of special concern.

    Carstairs said the reason for special concern is that snapping turtles suffer from, habitat loss and injuries and death on roads.

    She said, people can help a turtle cross the road if its safe to do so. Make sure youre a safe boater, a safe fisher. Dont col-lect them for the pet trade, dont consume them for food.
