West Calgary Home and School Association fonds
25 cm of textual records
The original West Calgary Home and School Association was organized in Calgary, Alberta in 1942. In 1949, the membership decided to split into two locals, the West Calgary Home and School Association based at West Calgary School, and the Rocky View Home and School Association serving the quonset and cottage schools. The WCHSA continued in operation until 1958, when it disbanded due to the closure of West Calgary School. Issues of concern to the parents and teachers included the establishment of a rural health unit, sanitary water supply and toilet facilities, safe playground apparatus, traffic safety, improved teacher training and recruitment, and various fund-raising activities.
