Principal Hugh Morrison, a former student at the school, told the group that G. C. Huston is a unique school.  “When I left some 13 years ago, the school was on the verge of closing.  Now we have gone from 120 students to what will be more than 345 this fall (2019) at full capacity.”

Principal Morrison said that he has been an Administrator in several schools.  “I have never seen support like this school receives from the community and one of the largest is from the Rotary Club.  This school is, in fact, considered a leader in Reconciliation work and honouring the customs and traditions of First Nations.”

He also said that very few schools still have a hot lunch program or a nature program.  “We are also going to be the first school in Canada to have a unique cycling program that will soon be announced. We promise that we will continue these programs that make our school unique.”
