Bow Island schools to move division


It’s official. catholic schools in Bow island will become part of the Holy Spirit Catholic Division out of Lethbridge.  Holy Spirit Trustees voted late last week at their regular meeting to move forward ont he request.  The schools were part of the Medicine Hat Catholic Board of education and last fall voters resoundingly supported a plebiscite to look at moving divisions.  While ministerial approval is still needed for the move, Holy spirit officials say that the plan is to have Bow Island schools in their own division under the Holy Spirit umbrella.  Officials with both boards say there is a great deal of work to do over the next few months but beleive the transition will be a smooth one
