CRPS Band Concert

Join our Grade 9 Band class and their teacher, Dr. Brian Sand for their first public performance at CCHS on Thursday, May 30 starting at 7 pm. Also performing will be students from the band classes at LGMS and CCHS. It’s not a contest, simply a wonderful opportunity to showcase and celebrate our students performing together for the first time.


Exam Timetable

Below is the timetable for exams in June. These dates are on the school website’s Google calendar. Please note: Students taking diploma exams are required to take them on the scheduled date as these dates are set by Alberta Education.  If students cannot take other final exams on the date scheduled, they need to talk to their teacher about possibly rescheduling their exam.
