ALBERTON – Classrooms in the new Alberton Centre of the Holland College West Prince campus will be ready to accept students on Wednesday, reports campus manager Paula Foley.

Administrative staff relocated Thursday from temporary quarters in the Western Community Curling Club and into the new Alberton Centre.
Foley said the building is creating lots of positive feedback. Staff and students are excited for the school year to begin.
