Who Was Guy Weadick?

The school is named after Guy Weadick, a flamboyant character in Calgary's history. Guy Weadick was born in Rochester, New York in 1885. He came west when he was only 13, filled with dreams of becoming a cowboy. He learned to rope and ride a horse in California, and cow-punching became a way of life. Trick roping was his specialty. He performed in several Wild West shows in North America and Europe. In 1908, while visiting Calgary, he met with H.C. McMullen and proposed to him the idea of an annual Frontier Day celebration for the city. On Labour Day, Sept. 2, 1912, the opening day of the first Calgary Stampede was finally staged. Sixty thousand people watched the history of the west on parade. The Calgary Exhibition & Stampede was born, thanks to Guy Weadick.

School Development Plan

​Each year, our school prepares a development plan with input from teachers, school staff, students and parents. We review many sources of data, including report cards, provincial achievement test results and school surveys. Based on this information, we create our plan identifying targeted areas for growth. Our school development plan is not meant to represent all of the work that takes place in our school, but rather it focuses on specific areas for improvement.​​​

School Results Report

Our school also prepares a results plan, which looks at our previous school year. It shows our students’ achievement and progress in meeting the goals and outcomes as set out by the CBE and Alberta Education, outlines some of the highlights of our school development plan and gives an overview of our school. You can look on the CBE website for system-wide results​.

CBE playgrounds remain closed. We will begin re-opening on Monday, June 1. Openings will continue throughout next week. Once the yellow tape has been removed and signs say the playground is open, the equipment can be used according to health guidelines. #yycbe #WeAreCBE #yyc https://t.co/zBid3GNq26
