The Seine River School Division gave its first reading to a by-law allowing religious instruction to take place at Richer School for this year. Superintendent Mike Borgfjord says this is not something that would be run by the teachers of the school, but someone from outside the school would come in to facilitate the program.
“Any school community can request by petition for a by-law to any school board for religious instruction in school outside class hours during the school day. We had a group of parent that signed a petition requesting religious instruction be allowed at the Richer School for this year so it was the first reading of the by-law.”
Borgfjord adds they need a certain amount of participation for the by-law to be passed.
