“Beach Day” for Grade 12’s

Grad Week started today and the seniors called it the “Beach Day”. Grade 12’s got wet, enjoyed the sun and enjoyed splashing water to each other. It was a really good lunch time although not everyone had the opportunity to throw a water balloon to someone.

Thank you so much for all the Grade 12’s who participated in this Grad event. Please continue to participate in other Grad week activities.

Check out some cool photos below.

TUXIS Parliament of Alberta


TUXIS is a model parliament for Alberta youth aged 15 through 21. It is a self-run volunteer organization, and the oldest continually running youth parliament in Canada.  TUXIS is founded upon four aspects: the social, the intellectual, the physical, and the spiritual. TUXIS is non-denominational and welcomes youth of all belief systems.


There are five conferences throughout the year, usually in February, April, May, September, and November.  Each begins on Friday night and ends on Sunday afternoon. Conferences are used to plan for Session, the week of debate that takes place December 26-31, and allow the TUXIS community to come together for a weekend of fun and friendship.

At conferences, members participate in a practice debate, a planning meeting and a wide variety of programming. Ministers and Deputy Ministers plan activities and discussions for programming that include ice breaker activities, active and creative games, charitable work, discussions on world issues, and activities that help members to grow both spiritually and as individuals.


TUXIS is a great place where you can build life-long friendships, gain public speaking and leadership skills, and learn about the world around you.  It is a diverse group of young people that are caring, open-minded, and interested in issues that are important to its members.  Additionally, there are many opportunities for you to volunteer and make a difference in your community!

At TUXIS you will get the opportunity to learn about the world around you, learn about yourself, and have a GREAT time. TUXIS is a place where you can meet some of your best friends and have the time of your life. Most members leave one event counting down the days until the next.


The cost for a conference is $30, or $35 for late registrations. Registration is due one week before the Friday of the conference. Meals and accommodations are included, but extra money can be brought for snacks or merchandise.

Speak Out Forum 2014


Do you have something to say about the “Education” in Alberta? Then you should join the Speak Out Forum 2014.

Here’s what the description for the conference from their website.

The Speak Out Conference is an opportunity for Alberta’s youth to come together from every corner of the province once a year to discuss their perspectives and ideas on how to improve education.

This year, we will bring together 200 students, aged 14 to 19, to meet with Alberta Education.  Students will have the opportunity to learn more about, and provide input on, the work and initiatives going on within Alberta Education.  We also offer a concurrent conference for chaperones where we will highlight initiatives and give opportunities for input into the future of education in Alberta.

Check out the draft agenda below for more information.

To ensure full provincial representation, there are 40 student seats available for each zone, and representation from a single school/group may be limited to 4 participants. We are looking for students with different backgrounds, opinions, and experiences.  There is no fee to attend the conference and meals will be provided for the duration of the conference. We will provide public transportation on Greyhound buses and accommodations for out of town participants and their chaperones.

The application is now online!  Your application is not complete until we receive your signed Parent/Guardian Consent form with the completed chaperone information.  Every student participant regardless of age (14-19) must come with a chaperone.  A chaperone can bring a group of students when required.

Please send us your signed consent form as soon as possible. We must receive your completed consent form by 4:30 p.m. February 28, 2014, but the sooner the better!  The Speak Out team will send a prize to the first 50 students that submit their signed consent forms.  The Conference fills up fast so apply early to avoid disappointment!
