Deer Lake School
The Government of Canada, through Indian and Northern Affairs Canada, has provided $13,995,000 to Deer Lake First Nation, which managed the design and construction of the school. Clearing and construction work began in June of 2003.
The new 3,561 square metre community school, offering Kindergarten through Grade 10 programming, is expected to accommodate up to 354 students. The new school contains a total of ten classrooms; a gymnasium and washroom/shower facilities; a library/resource centre; a multi-purpose facility for Native language and special education uses; a computer room; labs for home economics, science and industrial arts classes; and administration and staff rooms
