Schools across the province are gearing up for the return of students next week.

B-C Education Minister Mike Bernier says for the second year in a row, there is an increase in student enrolment across the province.

He says one of the changes this year is the full implementation of the new curriculum in kindergarten to grade 9….

Bernier says public consultations will also be launched later this month to find out from parents how they want to be kept informed of their students progress.
