Our School

We are working together in a common interest, that of promoting the growth and development of children. In order to accomplish this task, we need the help, support and understanding of parents. Working together, we plan to make each child’s school year a safe, successful and happy one. We hope that you will continue to participate in our school activities. Our goal is to have a strong partnership with parents in the education of their children and to provide a safe, secure learning environment for all.

Who Was Alex Munro?

Alex Munro was born on May 13, 1895 in Evanton, Ross-shire, a small village in northern Scotland. He started gardening when he was a schoolboy and at seventeen became an apprentice gardener on a Scottish estate. He gardened on different Scottish estates until 1920, with the exception of wartime service. He came to Alberta in 1920 and soon joined the City of Calgary's Parks Department. In 1939, he became a Fellow of the Royal Horticultural Society. Mr. Munro became superintendent of City Parks in 1949 and retired in 1960. During these years, he wrote a weekly gardening column in the Calgary Herald and was in demand as a judge of flower shows. Until his death in 1966, he was known as "Mr. Gardener" to many Calgarians.

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​.
