City Hall School is an Inquiring Minds Site. It provides a week long, inquiry based, hands on learning experience for Grade 1 to 12.
They will learn that this landmark building is not just the home of civic leadership but also a gathering place for the community. The vibrant downtown core provides endless possibilities for connecting students to their city, curriculum and career pathways.
As the week progresses students, teachers and parent volunteers come away with an increased sense of civic pride and a richer understanding of the services that the City provides to meet the needs of Edmontonians.
The week is a catalyst for a year-long connection with City Hall. Students receive their City Hall School journals and Key to the City in September and start making connections through the theme the teacher has developed for the class.
The annual Citizenship Fair in June allows students to showcase and celebrate their year.
City Beat is a weekly eNewsletter designed to connect City Hall School students with the City Hall School Site Coordinator throughout the year.
This information about Municipal Government, City Events and current issues enables students to build a rich foundation for the week they spend at City Hall School. The publication also provides a prompt for student discussion and journal writing.
