“Having students in our building is truly special. It reminds all of us why we do the work we do. Students are at the core of everything that happens at the Calgary Board of Education. I love that they are so inquisitive and authentic. The opportunity to attend a Campus Calgary program for many of our students gives them the opportunity to see things beyond the classroom and gain a greater understanding in how a school board operates….visiting with the students is one of the highlights I experienced as a Trustee”. Joy Bowen-Eyre Trustee Wards 1 & 2
Community Experts The community of Connaught welcomed 2School and worked with teachers to bring their “Big Idea/Inquiry Question” alive.

“What a worthwhile experience! It was thrilling to be part of the learning. It creates great energy in the building. It connects our work with the core business of CBE”. “We get to work with kids today? I was so excited to get up and go to work”. CBE Staff
“My son was excited about 2School from the first moment he found out about it and enjoyed every minute. We had updates every evening on what he saw and learned. He gave detailed information about the water filtration system. I forget what he called the device to kill the germs. Unfortunately I didn’t retain the knowledge as well as he did!” Royal Oak Parent
“What I particularly enjoyed was the history aspect, relating history to locations downtown. It was great to show kids how to find their way around downtown, using maps and street signs. It was a great program!!!” Hawkwood Parent
It was a true pleasure to be involved in this program. It gave me an opportunity to see many different things through their eyes and their thoughts. It allowed us all to have those special and rare one on one moments to share in small groups. While it was as busy a schedule as a normal school, it felt more relaxing”. Royal Oak Parent
