New Catholic high school needs name

Students, teachers, staff, parents and friends of Catholic education are invited to help find a name for its new high school.

Students, teachers, staff, parents and friends of Catholic education are invited to help find a name for its new high school.

Adriana LaGrange, chairwoman of Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools, said there hasn’t been approval for a school, but it’s the number one priority within the division’s recently developed three-year education plan.

“We know that it is just a matter of time before approval is given,” said LaGrange.

Those wishing to submit a name for the high school can do so online. People can also cast a vote and make comments on submitted names.

LaGrange said it’s a tradition to name a school when it becomes a priority. It certainly makes the project more real for everyone, she added.

“And by involving our stakeholders in the naming process we gain a better understanding of their expectations which in turn will help us in our planning,” she said.

Anyone can participate in the project by going to www.yourschoolyourvoice.ca or the school board office at 403-343-1055. The deadline is March 28.

The group with the winning submission will win a pizza party for the group or classroom; an individual who submits the winning name will win an iPod.
