Welcome to Lord Beaverbrook High School. Please take time to explore our school web site
At the start of the school year, as Principal, I made a bold statement. That statement was that I want Lord Beaverbrook to be the best high school in Calgary. I challenged students to “Do your best; show us your best attitude; do your best work; and put forth your best effort.” Here are a few recent examples of how our students have taken up the challenge.
Skills competitions have begun for another year where many of our students interested in testing their skills in CTS will engage in competitions locally, provincially and nationally. Congratulations to the following students from LBHS on their recent achievements: Heather and Karin – Gold medal at the Wearable Art competition; Dawson – Bronze in Senior Welding; Cary – Silver in Junior Welding; Spencer – Safety Award – Carpentry; Dana – Gold Regional Baking Competition (good luck in Provincial Skills). As well congratulations to five of our students on their qualification for the ACAD Showoff – art exhibit, and specifically to Lindsay on being awarded the Western Art Scholarship at the Calgary Stampede. You have represented both yourselves and Lord Beaverbrook exceptionally well.
While we have turned our focus on the above outstanding achievements, we cannot forget what others have accomplished previously this school year: Junior Girls, Junior Boys, and Senior Girls Basketball teams CSHSAA Division III Basketball City Champions; LBHS Chamber and Concert Choirs Gold ratings at Choralfest in Edmonton; LBHS Improv Team Gold Medal at the Canadian Improv Games-Alberta – break a leg at Nationals in April.
Students Building School Pride
Lord Beaverbrook students care for and desire to make our school and our community a better place to be. Students Building School Pride is a Prezi (presentation tool) that shows how our students are building school pride through voice, leadership, community influence, and staying connected. If you are a current student and want to get involved in an activity, club or initiative, have a look at what opportunities exist, and make it happen!

2014-15 Course Registration
On-line course registration continues. Our school is almost 92% registered for the 2014-15 school year. Guidance Counsellors are tracking down those students from grades 9-11 who have not completed their registration and supporting them in the process. If your son or daughter has not completed course registration for next year, please do so quickly.
Information regarding on-line course registration through Home Logic can be found on lbhs.ca through For Parents/Parent tools/Home Logic.
Information for Lord Beaverbrook High School transition work with designated feeder schools can be found on the lbhs.ca site under the “For Parents/Transition to High School” tab or “For Students/Transition to High School” tab.
The Final Word
“Welcome the task that makes you go beyond yourself.” (Frank McGee)
To all of our students, remember – do your best!
Go Lords! Be fiercely proud!
Jim Simpson, Principal
