​Regular Program at the CBE

Even though most of our schools offer a regular program, no two are quite the same. All schools teach according to Alberta Education’s mandated curriculum, however a school’s focus, optional courses and school activities are as unique as every school.​​​

Program, Focus & Approach

Achievement at Bishop Pinkham School 

Students of Bishop Pinkham School have long held a reputation for being exemplary citizens, dedicated learners, strong visual and performing artists, athletes and positive people. Success is due to a combination of each student's talent, skill, commitment and hard work along with support from parents, teachers and peers. 

Homework

There are two significant variables that positively affect student achievement: regular attendance and assignment completion. Homework may include:

  • Completion of work not finished in class.
  • Completion of short term and long term assignments.
  • Review of work covered that day.
  • Study for exams and tests.

Section 2 of the CBE Administrative Regulation 3066 - Homework states:

“The assignment of formal exercises for completion is the prerogative of the teacher, but every encouragement shall be given to pupils (and parents) to set aside some regular time each evening for home study.” 

and the Administrative Regulation also states

The nature and amounts of home study recommended are as follows:

  • Grades 7 to 9: In the junior high school level, students are expected to study from 1 to 1½ hours per school night.

​Exploring Career Choices

For Grades 5 to 9 at the CBE, we offer Career & Technology Foundations (CTF). This is an inquiry-based, hands-on program that focuses on essential skills common to occupational areas, and our students personalize their learning based on their interests and passions.​​​
