As part of Help Plan Our Future Calgary Catholic School District consults with the community throughout the process of new school construction.  Current numbers and expected growth for the Evanston community suggest that the new school to be built in Evanston will result in the school being at or near capacity soon after opening.  As a result, it has been determined that the new K-9 Catholic School to be built in Evanston will provide educational programming to students who are resident to the district and residing in Evanston.

The smaller communities of Sage Hill and Kincora will continue to be accommodated at Msgr. Neville Anderson (Sage Hill), St. Bede (Kincora) and St. Helena (Sage Hill & Kincora) Schools.

It is important to note that only students residing in Evanston will be affected by the boundary change.  All others will continue to be offered educational programming at their current school.  Interested parents are invited to join us as we consider the options and opportunities presented by the opening of a new Catholic school in Evanston.

Date: April 21, 2015

Time: 7:00 – 8:30 PM

Location: St. Bede School (333 Bermuda Drive NW)
