Student enrolment up from year-end

There were slightly less students in September than there were at the beginning of the last school year, although numbers are up from June.

An initial count is showing that slightly less students started school in the Prince Rupert School District (SD52) this September, although the number of learners is up from June.

As of Oct. 10, preliminary numbers showed there are 2,073 students within the district this school year, down 27 students from September 2013 when the official head count was 2,123.

Kathy Gomez, SD52 director of human resources, noted that at the end of May there were 2,061 in Prince Rupert schools, the same number of learners registered in the district on Sept. 30, 2014.

“Between Sept. 30 and Oct. 10 this year, 12 more students enrolled. Overall, enrolment is higher today than it was when the school year ended in June,” Gomez said.

This year there are 148 kindergarten registrants, up from 144 last year. Gomez said 17 of these students are in the French immersion program.

The official student count for the 2014/2015 school year took place on Oct. 17.
