Time to grow up

We hope you enjoyed Canada Day. Our country turned 143 years old this week. If our 142nd year was any indication, Canada is really starting to come into its own. In the last year, Canada has hosted several major international events.

Another lose-lose

Here we go again. The Calgary Board of Education announced last week that it will cut 277 full time jobs, including 192 teaching positions, as part of its annual budget.

School division commended

We would like to commend Rocky View Schools for balancing the 2010/11 budget despite little to no help from the Provincial Government. RVS staff has managed to avoid major cuts to services at schools, which are already cramped and dilapidated. A 0.
