Our School

Manmeet Singh Bhullar School is a safe, caring and dynamic learning community which ensures rigorous academic learning and opportunities for all students to develop their personal talents and abilities. We encourage students to set and achieve challenging personal goals and to approach life with a “Can Do” attitude. A focus on academic inquiry, citizenship, environmental stewardship and health & wellness are at the heart of our school. The rich diversity of our students is seen as an advantage in the development of capable, self-reliant and responsible learners capable of succeeding in the 21st century global community.

School Organization

School organization is an ongoing process in the new school setting.  As our numbers continue to change, school organization may change and as a result, students or teachers may be re-organized.  We will be very cautious and intentional about this process.  We know how valuable teacher and student relationship are and will take into account all factors if we need to adjust teaching assignments or classrooms for our students.  Parents are always informed in the event their child’s teacher is changing, or that students are being re-grouped.  This is more prevalent in this first year as our school population and numbers are established.

​​Our School's Commitment to Truth and Reconciliation

We are committed to acknowledging and supporting the implementation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission 94 Calls to Action specific to education. Our school, along with all CBE schools, made a TRC Commitment to Action. On June 21, we renewed our commitment, which can be found under Resources.​​

Acknowledging the Land

We would like to acknowledg​​e the traditional territories and oral practices of the Blackfoot Nations, which includes the Siksika, the Piikani and the Kainai. We also acknowledge the Tsuut’ina and Stoney Nakoda First Nations, the Métis Nation (Region 3), and all people who make their homes in the Treaty 7 region of Southern Alberta.​

​​​School Development Plan

​Each year, our school prepares a development plan with input from teachers, school staff, students and parents. We review many sources of data, including report cards, provincial achievement test results and school surveys. Based on this information, we create our plan identifying targeted areas for growth. Our school development plan is not meant to represent all of the work that takes place in our school, but rather it focuses on specific areas for improvement.​​​

​​​​School Improvement Results Report

Our school also prepares a results plan, which looks at our previous school year. It shows our students’ achievement and progress in meeting the goals and outcomes as set out by the CBE and Alberta Education, outlines some of the highlights of our school development plan and gives an overview of our school. You can look on the CBE website for system-wide results​.
