“Together We Grow”
At Colonel Walker School we live and learn together on Mohkinstis, in Treaty 7 Territory. We celebrate diversity and maintain equitable and inclusive learning environments. Our teachers, support staff and families work together to understand and respond to the holistic needs of each student (Spirit, Heart, Body and Mind). We maintain high academic standards, nurture curiosity and build resiliency in all students. As a small school community, we have a big heart; our students, teachers and support staff know and care for each other. Each day at school, our students engage in meaningful and challenging learning experiences to understand themselves, our community, and the world. We support students to see and appreciate multiple perspectives. When Colonel Walker students transition to junior high school, we strive to ensure they love learning, respect others, have confidence in themselves and are ready to contribute to the world in positive ways in the future.
Students come first. Learning is our central purpose. Public education serves the common good.
Colonel Walker School is named after Colonel James Walker (1846-1936), a previous landowner in the Inglewood area. Walker was a citizen of Calgary chosen from over 3,000 nominees as the "Citizen of the Century" in 1975. He contributed to the City of Calgary through initiatives in the fields of education, health, manufacturing, natural resources, immigration, and civic council. We remember Colonel James Walker for his entrepreneurship, creativity, fairness and generosity.
