Commemorating Canada’s Mission in Afghanistan

Canada is ending its military mission in Afghanistan on March 12, 2014, which will be marked by the lowering of our flag in Kabul.  To understand the significance of this day, students can learn about, honour and remember Canada’s engagement in Afghanistan by witnessing this flag-lowering ceremony.


Sport Consultation

Sport and physical activity play an important role in enabling students to reach their full potential. As part of the vision of Inspiring Education, Alberta Education is committed to enhancing the health and learning outcomes of all students and supports education partners to work together in creating and maintaining a culture of wellness in Alberta’s schools and communities. A new online survey asks Albertans to make choices about how they would allocate support to different areas of sport.
