School might be out for summer, but that didn’t stop a few Oak Bay High students from joining Education Minister Peter Fassbender on a tour of the new school today (July 15).

Victoria school district board chair Edith Loring-Kuhanga, principal Dave Thomson and media were also part of the group to get an advance first-hand look inside.

“I was impressed with this facility from its design right through to todays tour,” Fassbender said. “With its many modern and flexible learning spaces, Oak Bay High school is a stark contrast to the schools of the past.”

Throughout Oak Bay High, students have high-speed Wi-Fi access and the ability to broadcast their assignments to wireless projectors and Apple TVs found in most every classroom.

“The Greater Victoria School Board is eager to have our students start school in a facility that features excellence and true partnerships,” said Edith Loring-Kuhanga, Victoria board of education chair. “We believe that the state-of-the art facility will continue to motivate and inspire our students for generations to come.”
