Bulletin - Head of School's Message

There has been a heart-warming buzz of excitement at CFIS these past weeks in all areas of the school, with many varied activities at all levels, from skiing lessons for the younger students, to preparations for the musical in the Secondary Division, and open houses and assessments for new-to-CFIS students. 

Independent School and the Public Good

The Association of Independent Schools and Colleges in Alberta (AISCA), of which CFIS is a member, produced two concise, straight-forward videos that address the importance of choice in education for Alberta parents and the benefits of maintaining provincial funding for independent schools. The videos are very informative and can be viewed on YouTube at the below weblinks:


Round Square schools are characterised by a shared belief in an approach to education based on six pillars, IDEALS, drawn from the theories of educator Kurt Hahn.

Internationalism: Students learn to see themselves as global citizens and to look beyond gender, class, race, nationality and culture to understand human nature.

A Minute With Mme Amy: The view from the first floor (highlights from my week)

While the accident involving Mme Abi was far from being a highlight, the outpouring of love and support for her has been a powerful reminder of the strength and "family-ness" of our school community. Thank you to everyone who has reached out; I have passed on your love and good wishes, and was able to see Abi in person today.
