CALGARY – Bayside School and Lakeshore School, respectively, are the names of the Calgary Board of Education’s second elementary and middle school under construction in the southeast community of Auburn Bay. The Board of Trustees approved the names on April 5, 2022.
These names were recommended by school naming committees comprised of elected CBE Trustees, members of CBE Administration and school community representatives. In making their recommendations to the Board of Trustees, the school naming committees gave careful consideration to input gathered through community surveys.
The name Bayside School reflects the community’s desire to consider a name that closely represents the community of Auburn Bay. The school will offer kindergarten to Grade 4 programming when it opens in fall, 2022, and will expand to include Grade 5 in 2023-24.
The name Lakeshore School reflects the characteristics of the Auburn Bay community and complements other community-based names of schools in the area. The school will offer programming for Grades 5-9 when it opens in fall, 2022 and will shift to Grades 6-9 in 2023-24 to align with the grade configuration at Bayside School.
