School Council is also involved in activities which enhance the school environment. The following are only a few of School Council's current projects.
Each month, parents select a healthy menu from which students can opt to order. Parents then help serve hot lunch on the designated day. Past lunches have included home made foods such as chili, soup, sandwiches, and taco in a bag. We have also accessed local restaurants including Opa! Greek, Sizzling Wok, Taco Time, Subway and Pizza Hut.
School Council is spearheading the project for a new playground structure needed at the new school site.
As of January 2019, we have raised $230,000 for the new playground site. Groundwork has been donated.
Through Alberta Gaming (casinos), School Council has raised funds and donated significant amounts to the school in support of technology and field trips. Last year $15,000 was donated to support the purchase of iPads and $5,000 facilitated year-end field trips to places such as the Calgary Zoo, Telus Science Centre, Fort Whoop-Up, Calgary Olympic Park and others.
