School Name

Major Stanley Livingston Jones, B.A.  (1879 –1916)

Major Stanley Livingstone Jones was born in Wolfville, Nova Scotia on July 18, 1879.  He served as a private with the Royal Canadians in the South African War from 1899 – 1901 and was presented with a medal and four clasps.  He came to Alberta in 1901 and practiced as a member of the law firm of Lent and Jones Co. in Calgary.  In 1904 he married Alice B. Todd Walkerton.  He was President of the Canadian South African Veterans Association, Calgary; Secretary of the Alberta Provincial Liberal Association; a member of the Canadian Club and I.O.O. F. His recreations were rifle shooting and mountain climbing.

Major Stanley Jones was one of the first to volunteer in arms for Canada and the British Empire in the First World War.  The story of what he did at the Front was a household tale.  Wounded again and again, he nevertheless returned as often to his post of duty.  As an officer of the immortal Princess Patricia Light Infantry (P.P.C.L.I.) battalion, the history of that splendid regiment and Major Stanley Jones are one and the same.

Many eulogistic remarks were passed by downcast legal profession members and court officials who happened to be at the Court House when informed that Stanley L. Jones, Major in the P.P.C.L.I. had died as a result of wounds received on the field of battle.

Brave, public-spirited, noble-hearted, generous Stanley Jones. No more Gallant Canadian ever left our shore to die for his country.

​​​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 acknowledge 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, 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​.
