Our School Name

The school is named after the Bishop William Cyrian Pinkham who was the first Anglican bishop in Calgary. Bishop Pinkham was involved in Education in Manitoba before he came to Calgary. He was a member of the Council of Education and also served as a Superintendent of Education for the Protestant school in Manitoba from 1872 to 1883. He was responsible for creating a system to train teachers and also for beginning secondary education in Manitoba. After leaving Manitoba, Bishop Pinkham lived in Saskatchewan and then he administered the Anglican church in the Calgary area from 1903–1926. He and his wife were known for their charitable work in education and health care.
