Who was Annie Gale?

The school was named after Annie Gale, born Hannah Rolinson on December 29, 1876 in Netherton, England. She married William John Gale, a civil engineer, on February 9, 1901. Bill and "Annie" moved to Canada with their two children in 1912 on the encouragement of her sister who had moved to Calgary years earlier. Between 1912 and 1917, Annie became quite well-known for her volunteer work in Calgary. On December 10, 1917, she was elected to the Calgary City Council as an alderman. This was an historic moment in Canadian history. Until her election, no woman in Canada had ever held an elected office at any level of government - not municipal, provincial, or federal. In 1924, she ran for, and was elected as, a trustee to the Calgary School Board. Annie Gale eventually moved to Vancouver and lived there until her death on August 7, 1970, at the age of 93.

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​.
