Complementary Courses

Complementary Programs

Purpose

At Peter Lougheed School, we offer a variety of complementary programs. These programs are designed to help young adolescents explore a variety of experiences. Students will explore many programs in grade 5 where they will learn about themselves and areas of interest. As they move into grade 6 to 9 they will be able to select their own courses and delve more deeply into areas of passion.

Student Choice

Students select from a variety of programs based on their conversation with parents and teachers and by applying knowledge of themselves as a learner. Please be aware that some courses may be cancelled due to demand, timetable constraints, expertise, and other unforeseen circumstances.

Semester System

Our school year is divided into two semesters. Students take two complementary courses in each semester..

Exploratory

The complementary program allows students to try different courses and experiences. By providing a variety of courses within any given area, students are able to delve into areas of passion, or experiment with up to eight different complementary courses over the course of the year.

Grade 5 to 9 Complementary Programs

Students select up to four complementary programs. All courses are one semester in duration except students in some grades may have the option of signing up for a full year Music class.

RT @UsihChristopher: Important: Anyone who has been directed to isolate by AHS must not return to school or their workplace during their isolation period. It is also important that if you’ve had a COVID-19 test, you must not return to school until you get your results, even if you are feeling better.

Wishing all our @PLougheedCBE families a Diwali that brings happiness, prosperity, and joy! https://t.co/6VE8YG3EyU

RT @yyCBEdu: A new daily COVID-19 symptoms checklist for children under 18 goes into effect on Monday, November 2. Please make sure to review the new checklist to determine if your child is able to go to school and if you need a COVID-19 test https://t.co/8bPGQxIDHl #yycbe #WeAreCBE https://t.co/GMtFtxKXPj

RT @UsihChristopher: There are a number of CBE & Alberta Health resources available to help families understand what they’re required to do if their child is sick – when you must isolate, when to be tested, how long you must stay home and when you can go back to school. For info, visit CBE website.

RT @UsihChristopher: Proud of the way the entire CBE community has come together to support the ongoing learning &wellbeing of our students. As the weather starts to become colder, it’ll be more important than ever for everyone to be mindful of the health regulations & to stay home if feeling unwell.
