Principal’s Message

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.

CGS Update – March 12-16, 2018

Hello everyone.

Thank you to everyone for joining us at the Student Led Conferences. We hope you enjoyed the chance to chat as much as the staff. We look forward to these events to be able to fully share all that we do with you. Please take care on the roads and sidewalks around the schools. With the rapid melt, it is fairly slick out there. Stay safe.

Board of Directors

There will be a Board meeting on Wednesday, March 14, beginning at 6:30 pm at the Board office located at Unit C, 7239 Flint Road SE, Calgary, Alberta T2H 1G2.

Have you saved the date? March 15 is the annual parent Speak Out from 6:30 – 9:00 pm (with light supper and snacks). Come share your ideas about nurturing leadership in young girls and women. We’ll begin with an expert panel of women leaders who are making a difference in business, non-profits, professions and other leadership roles. Your feedback will inform the redesign of our Go Girls Curriculum, the hallmark program of the Calgary Girls’ School. Parents most value the importunity to share and learn from other parents – so your participation makes the event richer for everyone! Please do join us. We’ll have an RSVP out soon so we can confirm numbers for planning purposes.


For this week, our buddy assembly is changing dates.  Instead of being on Monday, March 12, we will hold the assembly on Wednesday, March 14.  This means that the Bel Aire girls will be at the Lakeview campus from12:45 pm to the end of day.  If you normally pick up your daughter at Bel Aire, you will need to pick her up at Lakeview at 3:05 pm.  All girls that normally ride the bus will do so on this day as normal.

Student Activities

Student Clubs continue at both campuses.

  • Debate and badminton continue this week at Lakeview.
  • Lunchtime clubs are now listed on our school calendar on the website.
  • The Dome Guy visits Grade 6 this week.
  • Grade 7 Band goes to perform at a Alberta International Band Festival.
  • Choralfest is on for Grade 5.
  • We have a number of guests presenting to our students this week as well. As always, busy as can be.


Griffin Hoodies are still for sale in your Family Zone account. The last order of the year will be March 22nd.

School Council

The School Council is meeting on Friday, March 16 at 9:30 am at the Bel Aire campus. Please join us. Amy and Nova promise not to twist your arm to join committees or take positions (unless you want to, of course).
