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.

Our School's Commitment to Truth and Reconciliation

We are committed to acknowledging and supporting the implementation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission 94 Calls to Action specific to education. In 2021, our school, along with all CBE schools made a TRC Commitment to Action. On June 21, 2022, we renewed our commitment, which can be found under Resources.​​

​​​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 Improvement 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​.

RT @ZooSchoolyyc: How do we teach the value and importance of our connection to all living things? Maybe by getting to know our local neighbours? This is a concept our Chris Akkermann students are just beginning to understand. Have you spotted this local winter bird? https://t.co/W2MjY26FrR

RT @kinggeorgecbe: Le défi du flocon de neige a commencé! Comment est-ce que tous les élèves dans chaque classe vont créer un flocon de neige qui est aussi grand que Mme Shafina ou Mme Renée, en utilisant seulement le papier, les ciseaux et la laine? @CBELanguages #WeAreCBE https://t.co/F6vE6jP5td
