A new school on the Birch Narrows First Nation should be complete by the fall of next year.


A sod-turning ceremony took place on the reserve yesterday.


Birch Narrows chief Robert Sylvester says his community badly needs the new 340-seat facility.


He says everything looks ready to go for the construction, and the plan is to have the school ready for students by September 2010.


Indian Affairs recently announced a new school would be built at Deschambault Lake as well.
