​​​Regular Program at the CBE

Even though most of our schools offer a regular program, no two are quite the same. All schools teach according to Alberta Education’s mandated curriculum, however a school’s focus, optional courses and school activities are as unique as every school.​​​

Program, Focus & Approach

Focus & Approach

Hugh A. Bennett will be a place where students engage in project-based learning through the lens of inquiry. Cross-curricular tasks created will be authentic, relevant, rigourous and connected to the real world. Students will be exposed to professionals who will share expertise within certain fields whenever possible.

Homework

Parents are encouraged to be aware of their child’s daily school activities and assignments. Children whose parents show an interest in their schoolwork, assignments and homework are more motivated to succeed. 

Here is a brief outline of what to expect at the different levels of elementary school as per Administration Regulation 3066 - Homework.

Division I (Grades 1-3): The motivation which comes from parental interest in children’s school work can be valuable to a child. Parents and teachers should encourage children to read from books suggested by the school. Pressures can bring about negative results. No formal assignments shall be made, but from five to ten minutes of systematic study per night is recommended.

Division II (Grades 4-6): Formal assignments may be given at the discretion of the teacher, particularly for pupils who need special attention or help, but in general, assignments should be of the reading or study type. Parents should be made aware of the teacher’s general requirements with respect to home study, and the Board’s expectations as set forth in section 2 above, but no school requirement should exceed 20 minutes in length.

Extended Breaks and Homework

Children are required by law to attend school on all official school days. Therefore, if holidays are planned during school days teachers are not responsible for providing homework or programs for the students.
