A Place for Everyone
At Westminster, we envision a holistic approach to education. Combining academics, arts, athletics and real life experiences, we seek to create equal opportunities for all of our students. Every student has a voice. Every student has a unique story to tell. Westminter is place for everyone.
Welcome to the 2017 - 2018 school year at Westminster Junior High School! There have been many exciting activities in our school over these past two months - Frank and a Float, the Halloween Dance, Food Truck Friday, Westminster Carnival, Warrior Wear Day, PIXAR Cross Disciplinary Activity, Frank Slide and our Pancake Breakfast to name a few.
As IB learners, our goal is to help create a better and more peaceful world. In November, we are promoting healthy relationships as part of the province's Anti-Bullying Initiative the week of November 13th - 17th and November 13th is World Kindness Day. Our Remembrance Day Assembly on November 6th recognizes the sacrifices made by our veterans in the Battle of Passchendaele.
We are watching our building transform as we undergo a full school painting rejuvenation. Our main gym is a great place to catch all the action with new basketball frames/boards, new crash mats, refinished floors, new acoustical spray on the ceiling and new paint that the celebrates our Warrior spirit! The Library Learning Commons has opened and now offers students an updated place to play board games, work on their studies or hang out with their friends. We are excited to welcome students and families to our new learning environment at our Open House on Tuesday, March 6th at 6:30 PM.
Registration materials for 2018 - 2019 will be available early in January for prospective students and families for both our IBMYP and Regular program. Check the Registration Page on a regular basis for the most current information. For families out of Distict (i.e. Edmonton Catholic Schools), we will be accepting registrations effective February 1st.
Education is about hope and believing that everyone can have the opportunity to be who they want to be and do what they want do. Westminster School is a safe place for students to discover their purpose; it's a place where kids can find their kindred spirits and where teachers are dedicated and interested in our students. At the core of Westminter's pedagogy is the IB Learner Profile which is built on high standards of student work, behaviour, community involvement, and school spirit. We are a dynamic place to learn, grow and have fun.
On behalf of the staff, it is a privilege to welcome you to Westminster School. We are a place for everyone.
