Clubs

Because Highwood School mainly consists of students who are bused to and from school, after school curricular activities are limited. During the year school staff will offer noon hour clubs and activities. The purpose of these clubs is to help foster the growth of our students’ interests and to provide enrichment to the school curriculum. Some of the clubs we have had in the past included:

  • Leadership
  • Knitting
  • Floor Hockey
  • Origami
  • Lego

Sign up information for the clubs will be distributed a few weeks before clubs start (usually in the spring after Chinese New Year).

After School Cultural Activities (ASCA)

ASCA is a parent run group that contracts professionals to teach students classes such as martial arts, Chinese calligraphy, Chinese dance, etc. Tuesdays and Wednesdays after school at the school. Students can participate in these classes for a small fee and parents are responsible for picking up their child after classes (no buses will be provided). More information will be provided in the fall.

Every year many CBE schools participate in a Terry Fox Run. In 2020, our schools raised an incredible $163,886.64 for cancer research. Thank you to all of our students, staff and school communities who have kept Terry’s dream alive 40 years after his journey began! #WeAreCBE https://t.co/di9w1dX7DI

Each year Alberta Education sends an important survey to parents/guardians of students in Grades 4, 7 and 10. The results are used to assess satisfaction with the quality of education & we use the information to improve teaching and learning. https://t.co/S1qsRKBerD #yycbe
