Onoway Junior Senior High School has been approved for a grant of $121,314 from the Alberta Government's Community Facility Enhancement Program (CFEP) to help with the construction of a full-size outdoor track. The letter from CFEP said, in part, that the grant was awarded “to assist the Onoway Parents Educative Association with facility upgrades to the Onoway School Field.” The letter went on to say: “Your organization is to be commended on its hard work in connection with this project.”

NGPS Superintendent Kevin Andrea commented: "The Onoway Parents' Education Association and school administrators are to be commended for their resourcefulness and work in sourcing and applying for this grant. There is no doubt that the new running track will benefit students for years to come, not to mention the potential it has to positively affect the quality of life in the community of Onoway!"

The new track will provide students with a place to train, exercise, learn and compete.

The Community Facility Enhancement Program (CFEP) is administered by Alberta Culture and Tourism and aims to foster healthy, vibrant communities across Alberta.
