Principal’s Message


This Week at Calgary Girls’ School 

The girls and young women of CGS are agents of change who develop
confidence and a strong sense of self in a safe,   collaborative, inquiry-based learning environment.

Habits of Mind

 Managing Impulsivity

Goal-directed, self-imposed delay of gratification is perhaps the essence of emotional self-regulation: the ability to deny impulse in the service of a goal, whether it be building a business, solving an algebraic equation, or pursuing the Stanley Cup.

Dear Calgary Girls’ School Families:

Wow what a weekend – Silver and Bronze medals at the city Science Fair, semi -final and final arguments at Law Day and an outstanding sharing of community at our Women’s Eve Gala.  Calgary Girls’ School is certainly a place where we can all excel and support one another in success and failure.  A place where we are encouraged to try new adventures, try our very best and know that at the end of the day there is a special place that will always be there for all of us.

Thank you to our School Council and Women’s Eve Gala committee for all of your work to make our evening a success.  

Girls are preparing for our variey show – check the calendar for details.

Track and Field practises continue.

Camp payments are due for grades 5,7,8 – Please check the wiki.


We understand the need to be in touch with your daughter when it is appropriate – TEXTING during the day interrupts learning.  Please text your daughter at lunch or before and after school.  We have a great deal of learning to do during the school day. As adults we all are responsible for modelling for our youth.

Please check the school calendar on the Wiki for important information this week at CGS.

Thank you,

Judi Hadden

Proud Principal
