“With more than 230 students attending this inner city Catholic school serving the 3,000 plus Catholic families in our area, with more students to follow, your plans to renovate and rebuild to house all the students under one roof are very impressive,” Kelowna Mayor Colin Basran said at the ceremony. “They will be much appreciated by the school and faculty.”
