Who Was Wilma Hansen?

Wilma Hansen graduated from the University of Alberta in 1926 with a bachelor of commerce degree. Her conviction that cooperation between parents and teachers was vital to education led to involvement with several home and school councils throughout Alberta.

Elected to the Calgary Public School Board in 1961, Wilma Hansen represented the Board on many key committees including the Citizen's Centennial and the development of school libraries and schools for the developmentally disabled. When she retired from the Board in 1967, she was awarded a life membership in the Alberta School Trustees Association.

Her tireless service was recognized when she was made a doctor of the University of Calgary in 1969.

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. In 2021, our school, along with all CBE schools made a TRC Commitment to Action. On June 21, 2022, we renewed our commitment, which can be found under Resources.​​

​​​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​.
