The duct was installed in the summer of 2001 to help alleviate the problem of emissions circulating in the school from vehicles parked outside of the school. Although the air quality was well within government guidelines, one student had been unable to attend the school because of an allergy related to the air. At least one other student had also come forward with concerns related to the air. But since the duct went in, all has been fine, noted Blaine Veitch, superintendent of schools. "By having the vent up high above the ground, it's getting fresh air," he said. Workers with Regent Construction out of Winnipeg constructed the 55-foot- high brick structure, which protrudes about 12 feet above the roof of the school.
