Your courses should always come first, but it is also important to be a part of your community outside of classes. You get to see teachers in a different light, work with people you share interests with and meet new people. Ms. Shaffer is the Learning Leader for student activities and leadership. Some opportunities include the following activities:
Tuesdays and Thursdays at lunch, room 127
Student Leadership is a fantastic way of connecting with the school, creating fun and meaningful events throughout the school year, and contributing to the communities outside of the school (locally, nationally and internationally). Some of our big events for the school year are: Rams Collective (an artisan market that supports student artists as well as a local cause), Battle of the Rams (supporting student musicians), and various student and staff led initiatives. We are planning a meeting at 1:00 pm in Room 127 on Thursday, August 30.
We welcome new members and are excited to see our returning students!!!

High School Model United Nations is a club that provides students with an opportunity to participate in UN simulations with other high school students from across the province.
Students debate global issues from the perspective of their assigned nation and attempt to draft and pass resolutions that support their countries’ national self-interest as well as insuring international peace and security. Over the course of the year we will be participating in a minimum of two different simulations.
The first simulation will be held in October at Sir Winston Churchill high school followed by one in February that is put on by the University of Calgary. Other simulations may also be added to the calendar over the course of the year based on offerings and student interest. Through their participation in this club students have a great time and make new friends, all while gaining an understanding of the complexities of foreign policy. Students can select from a variety of subjects that will challenge their understanding of current global issues. Topics range from human rights, to international peace and security, and global health issues plus many others. Through the simulations, students gain skills in research, negotiation, formal writing, and public speaking. They participate in formal and informal debate, write resolutions, and conduct diplomatic negotiation, and most importantly, cooperation and communication. If this looks like something that may interest your student please have them come and find Ms. Michael in room 131 or Ms. Cameron in room 128 in September.
Tuesday and Thursday mornings 7:30 AM
Tuesdays after school room 101
Mondays at lunch in room 109

Central Memorial students began a Gay Straight Alliance (GSA) in June of 2010. Over the past few years, we have coordinated events such as a the Alberta Provincial GSA Network Conference, Day of Silence, Anti-Bullying Week, Transgender Day of Remembrance, and have raised funds in support of Alpha House Calgary.
We would like to invite any students who are interested in becoming part of the Gay Straight Alliance to join us. The goals of our group are to celebrate diversity, to discuss and advocate for human rights, organize awareness campaigns, and to provide a safe place in our school. Our meetings start in September – check the Daily Bulletin and come and say hi on Club Rush Day for more information on our official start date!
Tuesdays at noon in Oasis
