KAMLOOPS —  It would appear that the City of Kamloops is getting its share of new families moving into British Columbia from other provinces.

A report to be discussed at tonight's School Board meeting shows that almost a third of the new Grades 1-12 students coming into the District are from out of province. A total of 350 grade 1-12 students have entered the system here, and 88 of them are from outside of B.C. 218 are from other Districts within the province, and 44 are from independent schools. 

Total enrollment figures, including the number who have left the District, are compiled at the end of September.
