A school is as good as its staff

A school is as good as its staff. In this regard we at Saint John Bosco consider our selves very privileged as we have an excellent body of highly motivated and dedicated teachers.

The teaching body and the class room assistants are young vibrant and enthusiastic. This experience is effectively communicated to the students and is evidenced in the happy and friendly atmosphere of the school.

Dedicated group of teachers

The Staff are trained to a high professional level in accord with the best educational practice and their range of experience is very diversified and ideal for our needs. They are a most dedicated group of teachers and show a genuine interest and concern for the pupils in all areas of their school life, spiritual academic and physical. All are trained in basic first aid and are proficient in dealing with special allergy problems,

Cooperation among staff is excellent and morale is particularly good. The running of the daily school program is in the capable hands of the principal Dr Carol Donaldson who is a highly respected Head Teacher in The Calgary School Division. She has worked for us just over two years and our School has continued to grow and prosper under her direction.

Individual help

What is attractive at St John Bosco is undoubtedly the small pupil to teacher ratio. This makes for more effective teaching instruction and guarantees individual help to all students in particular those experiencing learning difficulties. No class exceeds twenty children and most classes are considerably less, a very welcome prospect for any teacher. Discipline in these circumstances is not an issue and children are taught in an environment of good manners and respect for authority and for each other.

Understand in the light of Faith

Staff members are most anxious to form in their students a lasting love of learning, the creation of an orderly mind through the acquisition of good study habits. The purpose of our academic program is to understand every thing in the light of the Faith and it is the Catholic Faith that makes the School what it aims to be.
