                                                     Calgary Catholic School Trustee 

                                                              Wards 1,2 & Cochrane N.W.

 Our kids, Our future, Our responsibility.

The educational landscape is fast-changing, it is vital now more than ever to elect experienced knowledgeable trustees with a proven track record who can effectively navigate the challenges we are facing.

As your trustee for the last four years, Myra has a proven track record of working relentlessly for students, staff, and quality education. 

Myra is committed to faith formation, student/staff success, and wellness, Indigenous education & culture. She has fervently advocated for diversity, inclusion, reconciliation, environmental stewardship, and the success of ALL students to become holistic global citizens.  

Myra advocated and voted to rename Bishop Grandin School, to Our Lady of the Rockies High School. Her deep connection to the Indigenous community and as a board member of the Calgary Urban Aboriginal Initiative (7 years), made her more resolute to be a strong voice at the board table and authentically engage the Indigenous community.

 

Myra does not support the government’s K-6 draft curriculum or piloting it in our schools. It does not support an indigenous perspective and cultural diversity and sets teachers and students for failure.

As Chair of the Audit Committee, Myra initiated & accomplished implementing Risk Mitigation tools to proactively protect Calgary Catholic School District strategically, this is a huge achievement which will safeguard our district long-term. 
Myra has an excellent record advocating and building relationships with school councils, parents, staff, politicians, clergy, and provincial associations. She will continue to champion education funding, infrastructure, transportation, and special programs to protect and strengthen our Catholic district.”

 

                        I ask for your vote on October 18th, 2021
