Premier Jason Kenney issued the following statement wishing all students the best as they start the new academic year:
“This week, students of all ages are heading back to school for another thrilling year of discovery and learning.
“A strong, thriving province starts with a solid education that is as diverse as Alberta’s economic opportunities. Our government is working with parents and educators at all levels so every student receives a world-class education that meets their needs, brings them closer to their dreams and prepares them for a great career.
“Whether you’re in first grade or grad school – whether back to school means a classroom or a kitchen table – I wish you a successful, fun and fulfilling academic year.”
