Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 9, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Advantages of open area given to Fleetwood parents Wsdneidoy, D�cemb�f �, 1�70 - THI ItTHBRIDOE HIRAID - 21. ITie functions and objectives of the new Fleetwowl - Bawdeti open area school, scheduled to open Jan. 8, were outlined to more than JOO parents attending an inforaiation meeting at Susie Bawden School 'I\iesday niglit. I'he open aiea poiiion of Die strudui-e adjoining tlie present Susie Bawden School has a total of almost IB,000 square feet of floor space and was termed "the biggest in the world," by principal Joe Lnkic. Mr. Lakie said it had several advantages over the traditional clarssroom setup; it is flexible, accommodating any size gmip; movement from one area to nnotlier is not difficult as in schools with doors and hallways; teachers will Ije hi close proximity and will work together more easily. A feature of the oixin area classroom is tlie library - an 1,800 square fool area in the middle of the room, easily accessible to all students, lliero are no walls around (he librai->'; it is a part of the lai'Kc cla.ss-room. Tliere are also three smaller "back-up" rooms off the main ai'ea Uiat can be used for activities that generate considerable noise, such as showing films, "The most beautiful room in Homeschool meet in January A meeting to discuss (lie formation of a home and school or parent - teacher association for Uie new Fleetwood - Bawden School will be held sometime after the school opens in January. TTie subject was broached at an information meeting foi- parents at Susie Bawden School Tuesday night but little discussion took place and it was decided a mccUng specifically related to home and school could be held at a later date. Mrs. Marilyn Kranuner, past area co-ordinalor for .southern Alberta for the Home and School Council, outlined to more than 100 parents attending the nicoting the fimctions of euch aji organkation. Discussion from the audience was limited to two suggestions. One was tliat a home and scltool group was netxied Iw-cause it was only through \he pressure such an organization could wield that education problems could be solved. The other was thai an indid-dual approach could be taken by each parent to work out problems with teachers and that no "political camptugns" veve needed. the school," said Mr. Lakie, is i the music room, which faces j into tlie stage and adjoining: auditorium. j Mr. Lakie warned the parents not to look for i m m e d i a i e changes in the ciu-riculum after Central, Fleetwood and Susie Bawden students are amalga-1 mated in tlie new complex in January. The fii'st few months, he said, would be needed simply as a period of adjustment to the new suiToundlngs. There was al.so a gi-eal deal of planning to be done Ijefore any program changes could be made. Tlie staff, he said, had had only a few months to plan changes tiiat other ojwn area schools had taken veal's to develop. Classes in the new school will be basically tlie same as before the move. Mr. Lakie said that after much discussion it was decided to keep the students with tlieb- old home room teachers as much as possible, although they will be moving to new leachei-s for some classes. There will be 25 teachers in Fleetwood-Bawden, responsible for aliout 600 students. Of tl�se, 200 will i)e in Grades 1 and 2 and will remain in tlie present Su.sie Bawden part of the complex. The rest. bi Grades 4 to fi. will l)c in the ne\v open ai-ea along with \4 of the teachers. In iMy inion By CHRISTINE PUHl Herald Stoff Writer Status report lakes / yetna orrAWA (OPt - The .seven-member royal commLs s i o n on tile status of women made its report nearly four years after it was established in February. 1907. nie commisvsioii, headed by Aime Fi-ancis, C2, an Ottawa broadcaster who is in private life Mrs. John Bird, was in-structetl to recommend steiis the government could take to en-sure wiomen's equality with men in evei-y area of Canadian society. It was set up l>y the Liberal goveninienl headed by Lester B. Pearson. Other commLssion memlwrs are: Elsie Gregory MacGill. 62, a Toron(o aeronautical engi-m?er: l^)la Lango, wife of a Clams h o I m, Alta., rancher; Jacques llomipin. 41, a University of Montreal demographer; Doris Ogilviu, ,'">1, a Fredcricton juvenile court judge; Jeanne Lapointe, 55. a profes.sor at Laval University hi Quebec City' and John Humphrey, 65. a law professor at McGiU University, Montreal, Pi-of. Humphrey submitted the only minority report. QIRLS chasing boys and boys chasing girls around that eternal soccer pole in the elementary school yard may seem cute to people watching but for the children it develops very rapidly into tliat frustrating l)etnod of early teen dating. 1 can remember even in Grade 6 how I I'clt when all the �x)y.s asked my best girl friend to skate and not me. Authorities say now children are maturing even quicker so in what position with peer groups does that leave students just turning 13? Many times I have had young teens ask me just where do they fit into tiie scheme of tlieir own social world. They say their once closest friends are only interested in hobbies and tlie clique groups seem so self-centred and shallow in personality. What would you say to them, because after all it is an extremely important problem to them? I could tell them to join different clubs and participate in other activities because school surroundings offer such a variety of possibilities, but is that where they wdll fit in? IN MY OPINrON, this is why at this jKjriod there are so many large groups of fiiends forining. Within this large framework, many young teens wiio would othenvise be on the outskirts of actisity, can find companionship without actually being or expecting to be the centre of popularity. People now out of school or finishing high school may look back to those junior high school days and note the passing popularity of many groups and girls. The girls who made a hit in Grade 7 seemed to quickly wear out tiieir fresh appeal and tlie next year would greet a new group wliicli had risen to popularity. Who can say that those who were populai" only for a short time lost because of moral values? Maybe it was just their own self-respect or verbal aggrefi-siveiiess. Although in this day and age many people preach eciuality. in my opinion no law can tell a guy what he thinks of girls he is supposed to admire, when they are smoking, diinking and wrestling. .Mthough no boy could s;iy what the exact rules are by which he judges, there certainly are some present. There is no way for a girl to tell what he is actually tliinkiiig when in most cases his actions and words say soiiieUiing else, es|)ecially at the junior high level. .'\s young people grow older, they are treated in so many different ways that no wonder they seem confused and many linies bitter. /Vfter the age of 12 a child thinks of himself as mature and able to make adult decisions, according to David ICaslon, an American political scientist. A major ciisis develops tor junior high aged youth as they are faced with adult problems on dates such as money, alcohol, sex and human emotions; Avhile on the other hand parents who reaUse their children need guiding may try and enforce too tight a giip. I could sU down and wnte in black and white what I think should be set behavior in situations of first dates, going steady or just nilcs of acU\ity but it needs to be said on a personal level. People generally all seem to read advice columns and then laugh at the fun and games, but don't kid yourself, the people who write are serious and very much need a personal answer They don't care if it also applies to hundreds of others, jiist as long as it is addressed to them L-; V e n as a ropuitfr, I lutve iit times received confidential letlors of one s o r t or another. U'hy do those people wiite to me? Well, it's because they think that someone will listen to them. If not help them in some small way, at least listen. 1 was once told in a psychology class that the majority of people solve their problems themselves just by having someone listen to them so they can let even'thing come out Women loiv on ivage totem VICTORIA (CP) - 'Hie 1968-69 public accounts show that women employed in tlie British Columbia civil service work on Uie low end of the wage scale, Tlie report says only 78 of the 1,491 people earning more than $10,000 a yea r are women. There are 13 goveninieiit de-paiinu'iils, including the male, preserves of highways and puli-lic works, which have no women employed at the ijilo.OOO-plus level. Arthur Richardson, acting chairman of the Civil Service Commission, says women are interested in fitting themselves "for tlic executive jobs."
