My Beautiful Campus

In July 2017, I moved to a small town just outside of Calgary, Alberta to join an amazing school surrounded by 220 acres of land. As an outdoor enthusiast, this was a dream come true for me.

On our campus you can lose yourself in the beautiful groomed trails surrounding the school. Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter, you are bound to come face to face with a family of deer and cross tracks of various creatures hiding in the forest. Whether in hiking boots, snowshoes or cross-country skis the trails are always accessible.

While hiking the trails, you will find a large pond. If you are feeling up to it, you can borrow a kayak and go for a paddle. Otherwise, you can dip your toes in on the dock as you bask in the sun and breathe the crisp forest air.

If you aren’t feeling up for a long trek, closer to the the school, you can follow the path through the Forever Woods. There you will find beautiful benches and memorials of the students that were lost many years ago. You will find a beautiful calmness along this path.

Lastly you will find the Aspen Lodge. A Cabin with walls made of windows, surrounded by Aspen trees. You can warm up by the fire and enjoy the view of the nature surrounding you.

Recently a family of Elk decided to visit our school. Every morning I pass them lying down in the snow next to the driveway and on the way home I see them munching away on the grass they have dug up under the piles of snow.

  1. You teach at a truly beautiful school, with a gorgeous campus! I don’t think I’ll mention your post to my outdoors loving 7 year old, because he would want us to move to Alberta right this minute! Thank you for the campus tour and the pictures.
