Oki! Welcome to the 2022/2023 school year! Our entire staff at F.P. Walshe School is grateful for the opportunities that lie ahead as we strive to provide exceptional learning opportunities for all our students.
At F.P. Walshe School we are very proud of our diversity and the unique talents of all of our staff and students. Located on Treaty 7 territory, we are fortunate to work with and learn from our Blackfoot neighbors from both the Piikani and Kainai nations. We will continue to follow and live our vision/mission/motto statements of: Vision: A place to learn and belong Mission: Empower personal growth through meaningful relationships Motto: We Are Walshe. These three statements speak to our core values and beliefs at F.P. Walshe, and we will collaboratively be focused on enhancing our school culture through building connections and positive relationships with all our stakeholders.
As a grade 6-12 school, we are striving to have everyone who walks through our doors feel a strong sense of belonging. To achieve this, we are focused on providing our students with outstanding academic, athletic, arts, and extra-curricular opportunities throughout the year. In addition, our strong student leadership group continues to support the work we are doing around inclusivity and living our motto of: We Are Walshe!
The last three school years were challenging as we responded to the COVID-19 pandemic by following all of the Alberta Health Services, Alberta Education and Livingstone Range School Division protocols to provide a safe learning environment. Through all the challenges our students, parents/guardians, and staff have been remarkable and resilient, and we are excited to have more opportunities to gather in person and learn and celebrate together. Health and safety will always be a priority at our school but we very much look forward to being able to gather in person and build more positive relationships with our stakeholders.
To stay up to date on what is happening in the school, you can follow us on Facebook and Instragram: @fpwalshe or on Twitter: @fp_walshe.
Our entire team appreciates all the support and as always if you have any questions do not hesitate to contact one of us at the school. We look forward to a great year of learning!
