Joane Cardinal-Schubert (b. 1942 – d. 2009) was an activist and lobbyist for Aboriginal issues.

She was born in Red Deer, Alberta and went on to earn a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Calgary. During her 40-year career she wrote short stories, poetry, prose, commentaries, critical essays and plays. In 1986, Cardinal-Schubert was admitted to the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts. She was the recipient of many awards, including: the Commemorative Medal of Canada in 1993; the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Medal in 2005; an Honorary Doctor of Laws from the University of Calgary in 2003; and the National Aboriginal Achievement Award in Art from the National Aboriginal Achievement Foundation in 2007.

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​.
