Purcell Collegiate holding information session tonight

Residents can come out to McKim School tonight to hear more about the private boarding school coming to the area.

Purcell Collegiate is a boarding school focusing on sports and academics.

“What we’re updating the community on now is where we’re at and how we still get there,” said head of school and CEO Duncan MacLeod.

The plan is to have a facility on the grounds of the Purcell Golf Course.

In the meantime, students will stay at St. Eugene, take classes at the College of the Rockies and outdoor curriculum at the Kimberley Alpine Resort.

“The community of ʔaq̓am is really looking forward to welcoming students into our community at St. Eugen,” said ʔaq̓am Chief Joe Pierre.

“That’s going to be a part of the information update night. Just where the school is at and how we will be operating it coming up in September.”

The information session is at 7 p.m. tonight. Purcell Collegiate School leaders will be there to give an update on start-up plans and answer questions.
