Hitmen Success! Thank you to all of the parent volunteers who helped make the Hitmen #BeBrave antibullying game such a success. Organizing a field trip for 850 students is a major feat and we couldn't have done it without the support of many people. A special mention to Farah Mellot and the members of School Council for coordinating and financing the trip. For many of our students it was their first time watching a hockey game and everyone [...]

Dates to Remember


Principal's Message

March 31 Update

It is so strange to sit in a school without students. Not only is the building empty and quiet, it is lacking in the vibrancy and energy students bring with them every day. These interesting times in which we live present gifts and challenges.  
We have begun the process of moving instruction online. This week, staff are reaching out to each student and asking some key questions to help deliver lessons online or by printed resources. The way we are moving forward is an opportunity to get excited about understanding concepts. It brings students into a way of relating to education as a lived experience as it surrounds them. It does not rely on a building, a bell, or classroom. It is about the relationship between big ideas and breaking down those ideas into smaller building blocks of understanding. Children’s experiences can continue be designed by excellent teachers with the help of parents. We are in this together and we have an amazing opportunity to enrich the educational experiences of the kids we share. We are looking forward to engaging in ways we have not thought of before and in doing so could be changing the way we all embrace and interpret education. 
The staff of Captain Nichola Goddard School have all eagerly leaned in to doing things differently in order to maintain relationships with their students, design tasks in ways that all learners can engage and continue to believe so deeply in teaching and learning. They constantly inspire me. Our Facility Operator, Oliver, has been so thorough in keeping the building clean and sterilized to allow us to feel safe and healthy as we continue to do our best work possible. Our Support Staff continue to engage in professional learning to increase their skills and talents in working with children in so many different ways to benefit the educational supports for our students. Together, we all can make a profound difference in the lives of our children. 
As we move into the month of April, we will continue to learn new ways of teaching and learning. One of the most important messages I want to share with you as parents is to go easy on yourselves. While your child’s education is important, so is their well-being and also your own health. If you are feeling overwhelmed with the tasks and concepts your child is learning, struggling to maintain patience with your child as they face the understandable resistance that appears when learning is hard, please stop and do something else. Find a shared task you can engage in, teach your child how to bake brownies, go for a walk, play a board game. The richness of this time lies in the opportunity to be present with your children. There are many real-world opportunities to teach your child, last weekend I ‘taught’ my four-year-old and eight-year-old daughters how to change the oil in the car. It was messy and slow, but it was time spent together.  
This time of pandemic is not the time to worry about next year’s learning. Teachers are working hard to close any gaps in learning but if there are things missing in September, teachers will teach it then. Teachers are experts in designing learning and supporting students, it’s their job to make sure your children will be prepared, and I have no doubt they will do it, both now and in the future. 
With the cancellation of classes and the shared effort of limiting social interaction we have been required to keep the school locked. We have new operating hours from 8am until 4pm and any meeting requests must be by appointment only. Feel free to contact our office at 403-817-3300 if you need assistance with school-related matters and we will do all we can to help. 
I’d like to share some logistical and organizational items with you. We still have many unclaimed items left from locker clean out before spring break. If you would like to pick your items up, please contact the office to make an appointment. We are reaching out to students who still have library books on loan. We will have our book return bin outside the front doors from 8am until 4pm, please return items during those times. 
Take care, Ross Bushell, Principal ​
