Quick Facts

CAPE provides personalized programming to support each student as they pursue their personal goals. Small class sizes and the resulting low student to staff ratio is foundational to supporting academic and personal excellence.

The community is a partner in learning as it provides the domain for opportunities and experiences which expand beyond the school, including leadership, collaboration, diversity, and resourcefulness.

Anti-Bullying Day (Pink Shirt Day)

On Friday, February 18th, CAPE school recognized a world wide event known as Anti-Bullying Day (Pink Shirt Day). This is a day that has been introduced to promote acts of kindness and the prevention of bullying towards others. This event was founded by two male students in Nova Scotia who stood up against bullying in their school by wearing pink coloured shirts. The students distributed over 50 shirts to classmates to promote their support of anti-bullying. Over time this movement has evolved into a national and world-wide event which has been demonstrated. This year CAPE has shown our support of anti-bullying. The school planned several student activities which took place throughout the day to engage students in conversations about bullying and the negative effects. Students were encouraged to come wearing clothes with a "pink theme" to show their individual support for anti-bullying. CAPE also accepted monetary donations which directly supported PinkShirtDay.ca. Students were eager to show their decision to support Anti-Bullying.

Land Acknowledgment

Under the leadership of the First Nations, Métis and Inuit team, CAPE has developed a Land Acknowledgment document as part of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. Teacher Donna Goyer-Franz’s interest in the First Nations, Métis and Inuit culture, history and traditions was instrumental in the development of the document. Bruce Dynes of Framing & Art Centre in Medicine Hat graciously framed this document and it now hangs in our school’s main entrance for all to see, read, and reflect.
