Old shop classes returning to Petitcodiac Regional School

Petitcodiac Regional School is getting $1.1 million from the provincial government for some specific upgrades.

Premier Brian Gallant announced the government will be building new trades shops at the school for automotive and metal trades. Similiar shops were removed from the school in 1998 in favour of computer labs. Now Premier Gallant says the government wants to strengthen the economy by improving access for students to different trades.
