The population in the 2018-19 school year is approximately 464 students distributed across Grades 6 to 9. Many of our students have been identified as English Language Learners requiring ELL support and instruction. A small percentage of our students are identified as having special learning needs. Sir Wilfrid Laurier offers instruction in French as a Second Language, band, character education, and literacy, in addition to core studies in humanities, math, science and physical education. We hold school-wide events, such as assemblies, performances, celebrations of learning, and offer extra-curricular sports, leadership, and social activities for all our students.

Vision Statement

At our school, we believe the purpose of education is to challenge all students to reach their fullest potential. We strive to promote self-discipline, commitment, independence, curiosity and life-long learning. Through an enriching and supportive academic climate, we engage with students in active and meaningful learning. The staff is dedicated to guiding students as they become productive citizens, who make responsible choices, respect and value diversity, and actively participate in their school and community.

School Mission

The Traditional Learning Centre uses teacher-directed instruction and character education to foster reflective thinking, continuous learning, and responsible citizenship. It is a celebration of cultural diversity and commonly held values. The virtues-oriented school environment prepares students to meet the moral, technological, and global challenges of the 21st century.

School Philosophy

We are "together" with our parents, students, business community, and academic community in providing growth opportunities to all. Every one of us is an individual with unique talents and needs, and Sir Wilfrid Laurier is a school committed to the individual growth and improvement of all stakeholders. A major goal for the staff is to build a sense of belonging for our students. We believe in creating opportunities for our students to achieve mastery in a variety of ways.

School Motto

Go Lightning – Pride and Respect

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​.
