Integrated School Support Program (ISSP) at Patrick Airlie School

About ISSP 

The Integrated School Support Program (ISSP) was started by the Calgary Police Service in partnership with the Calgary Board of Education, the Calgary Catholic School District, The City of Calgary, and Alberta Human Services. Its mandate is “to provide intensive wraparound services to create an environment in which each child can attain personal success both academically and socially.” The project has been implemented in Patrick Airlie and Holy Trinity schools with funding from the Calgary Police Foundation and TransCanada. For more information, contact Gillian Bowerman, ISSP Manager, at gbowerman@calgarypolice.ca.

Breakfast Club

Every child deserves a healthy start to their day. All students can get free breakfast each day in the staff room between 7:45 AM and 8:15 AM.

Hot Lunch

Proper nutrition is essential for learning and development. A free hot meal is available for lunch. Tuesday and Thursday are soup and sandwich days Monday and Wednesday provide a variety of hot meals like perogies, chow-mein, lasagna and more!

There are noon Supervision fees. Waivers are available for families that qualify.

We offer a free after school program that includes reading activities, homework help, healthy snacks, fun activities, sports, leadership programs, and more. Space is limited.

Physical Education

Through physical fitness, a full time Phys. Ed. teacher will provide students with daily physical activity and wellness through racket games, skating, swimming, snowshoeing, cooperative games, and more!

School Psychologist

A full-time psychologist is available to meet with families and students for counselling and assessments. Please contact the school for an appointment.

Police Officers

A Start Smart Stay Safe (S4) Officer will provide lessons on problem solving skills, safety, making healthy choices, using respectful communication skills, building healthy relationships, being digitally safe, and serving others to build an inclusive, resilient community.

Also, a special team of Officers will be patrolling International Avenue (17th Av. SE) by foot and will visit the school for special events.

Multi-Agency School Support Team (MASST)

A MASST team, consisting of a sworn police officer and a registered social worker, provides coordinated support and resources to children exhibiting high risk, negative behaviour or who are at increased risk of victimization. If your family can benefit from this service, please contact your school.
