City Hall School

City Hall School is an Inquiring Minds Site. It provides a week long, inquiry based, hands on learning experience for Grade 1 – 12 students who 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 not only an increased sense of civic pride but also a richer understanding of the services that the City provides to meet the needs of Edmontonians.

The week itself 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 that the teacher has developed for the class. The Coordinator provides teacher training and works with the teacher to plan activities tailored to suit the class. The annual Citizenship Fair in June provides an opportunity for students to showcase and celebrate their year.
