Students and schools continue to benefit from a wide-range of supports and services that come from partnerships with corporate and community-based organizations as well as individual donors.
The CBE recognized the enormous contribution that our community makes to support student success and well-being both in and out of the classroom at our annual Better Together Breakfast on May 17, sponsored by HSBC.
A special thank you to Bowness High School for hosting this year’s event. The school’s culinary program students and teachers went above and beyond preparing an exceptional breakfast for the 180 guests who represented 67 agencies, groups and organizations. Students also shared their many talents and learning through performances and displays at the breakfast.
“Our schools are complex places and we cannot do this work alone,” said Jana Macdonald, principal Bowness High School.
Principal Macdonald reminded the audience of an African proverb - If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.
The CBE is grateful for the individuals and organizations who invest their time, resources and money in improving the learning and the lives of children and youth in our city.
We Are Better Together!
