Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-16,Lethbridge, Alberta 14 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD — W«dnMday, J*nu«ry It, 1974 County will ^fight on’ to improve Noble school By JIM UOZERON Herald SUif Writer D«spit« a setback at the bands of the provincial government’s school buildings board, the County of Lethbridge and Nableford Home and School Associatic»i intend to fight on to improve facilities at Noble Cefltral High School. The setbaclc — the school will qualify for only a 4,000 square-foot gymnasium although it had asked for a 7,200 square*foot gymnasium School committee approves revised class schedules The County of Lethbridge school committee Tuesday came up with a revised school year to free students, teachers and schools for the 1975 Canada Winter Games. After-school facilities use reconsidered After-school use of County of Lethbridge schools for recreation activities, discussed at school committee meeting one month ago, is to be given further attention, this time by the principals association. The school committee at a meeting Tuesday took no action on a request for more coordination for community use of schools. The committee decided to wait for input from the principals who will consider the matter at a Jan. 24 meeting. The committee tabled the issue as requested by principals association head Dewayne Duce, who feels something can be worked out satisfactoiy to the schools and the recreation branch on the community use of schools. T^e Oldman River Recreation Board at a school committee December meeting called for more co-ordination in the scheduling of afterschool activities. Five members of the recreation board attended that meeting and proposed they be the booking agency for scheduling after-school activities. The recreation board is trying to resolve problems that arise when it does not know far enough in advance school activities schedules. This situation makes it difficult to set programs, said recreation board chairman Gordon Luchia. Reporting on a Tiiursday joint meeting between principals, the recreation board and the school committee, member Peter Retzlaff noted the meeting help^ to bridge some areas of misunderstanding. However the principals had reservations about programming where afterschool school-connected activities come up on short notice.

I328 33U The proposed school year would begin earlier and eliminate a portion of the Easter vacation to make up for the time lost during the Games. The proposal will be present^ to Local 21 of the Alberta Teachers’ AssociaUon for consideration. Action was taken at this Ume because the county must notify the ATA six months before the start of the next school year about its wish to change the date. This is indicated in clause 20 of the teachers’ salary agreement. Five school days would be added at the beginning of the year with school beginning Aug 26 instead of Sept. 3, and four days subtracted from the Easter Vacation. Students would get Good Friday, March 28 off as well as Easter Monday, reUirning to classes April 1 Instead of April 7. Although the Games run Feb. 11 to 23, students lose only nine school days. The Christmas break Dec. 23 to Jan. 3 would not be altered. Since Jan. 3 fadls on a Friday, opening day might be moved to the following Monday Jan. 6. Supt. Chick Burge, who made the proposal, said the traditional Easter vacation is an advantage from an educational standpoint because it gives students a breather. But the Winter Games holiday and a teachers convention scheduled for February will give them time off. The recommendation also lists two staff preparation days (one per each half school year) and parent*teacher conference days (one day or the equivalent.) In another Winter Games matter, the committee decided to enter in an agreement with the Games society to upgrade Picture Butte High School so it can be used as a basketball Games facility. The Games Society has promised to share two-thirds of the cost of paving the parking lot. and had plans to convert the old gymnasium into a library. Responding to the buildings board announcement, the school committee at a meeting Tuesday decided to invite a representative of the board to the city for consultation and clarification on the gymnasium decision. The county will invite Steve Odynak, head of the Buildings Board. The Nobleford plan was to convert the old library to a Grade 12 room since the current room can accommodate only 15 pupils and 26 are expected to enrol in September. However, the buildings board recommends the old gym be used as a lunch facility and an early childhood services facility after some renovation. The buildings board had been asked to approve extra kitchen facilities. School committee member Eileen Urvold of Nobleford told The Herald she feels the school should be eligible for a two-station synmasium. She said the gym is being used more than ?0 per cent of the time. Building board regulations state double station gymnasiums will be recognized in sdiools where more than 80 per cent of their use is for physical education. Mrs. Urvold says it is not possible to offer students Physical Education 20 or 30 because of the utilization factor. Reading from a statement prepared by the home and school association, Mrs. Urvold said in light of Education Minister Lou Hyndman’s position paper on new directions in school design, the govern ment should provide more funding for kitchen facilities at Noble Central. The paper, announcing new building regulations, says the government will support lunchroom and kitchen facilities by renovation or new construction in the amount of four square feet per student where two-thirds of the students take their lunch to school. Two hundred of 300 students take their lunch to Noble Central, says Mrs. Urvold. If the present library were turned back into a classroom no renovations would be needed, the home and school association says. Locating the library in the old gym would require less renovation than conversion to an ECS classroom or lunchroom, the statement concludes. Building board regulations also stress double-statton gyms will be favored where there is an agreement for extensive community use of the school and where no gymnasium of this nze or larger exists in the district. On this count Noble Central should be eligible, says Mn. Urvold because facilitiea for community use other than the school are limited. A five-member group from the county school committee has been selected to meet with the buildings board representatives. Six members from U»e Nobleford Home and School Association wiU also attend. The home and school association in late November sent a statement of need to the building board setting out existing facilities nd describing how and to what extend they were being used. Colony teacher meetings to be held in schools The County of Lethbridge school committee wants to improve communication among teachers who work at five county Hutterite schools. Approval was granted Tuesday for regular monthly staff meetings during afternoons in the schools where the teachers work, discontinuing the practice of holding stafi meetings in the principal’s home. The meetings would be held on a rotating basis at Allent^, Chin Lakes, Hofmann, Rock Lake and Goldridge schools. The idea came from Mary Harvey, principal of colony schools, who said distance made it difficult for some teachers to attend staff meetings in her home. “1 believe meetings of the teachers are beneficial because problems peculiar to the education of Hutterite children can be discussed by those who are aware of the situations which arise,” Ms. Harvey stated in her request to the school conmiittee. Market agency stabilizes turkey industry The formation of the Canada Turkey Marketing Agency will add stability to the industry and allow many producers to stay In the business, according to Alberta officials. Don Potter, secretary of the Alberta Turkey Growers’ Marketing Board in Edmonton, said formation of the agency to control the production and marketing of turkeys in Canada climaxes eight years of work Under the new plan, approved by all provinces, each province will be allowed to produce a certain number of NikkaYuko attendance decreases The 1973 attendance at Lethbridge’s Nikka Yuko Japanese Gardens was down 7,643 from 1972. Kyoto Shigehlro, president of the Japanese Garden Society, says the major reason for the decrease Is the gas shortage in the United States. During July, 1973 the number of U.S. bus toura to visit the gardens was 22, about half as many as the year before, Mr. Shigehiro says. In the same month the number of U.S. visitors decreased by 2,563 from 1972. In 1973, 60,868 persons visited the gardens, compared with 68,511 the previous year. The Japanese Garden Society will hold its annual meeting We^esday at 8 p.m. in Room 1 of the-Civic Centre. A new board of directors will be appointed and the auditors report will be heard. The public is invited to attend. turkeys. If they produce more than their share of the national quota, their allotment for the following year will be reduced accordingly, said Mr. Potter. During the past two years, provinces have been following a gentleman’s agreement, voluntarily limiting production and marketing to prevent surplus turkeys from dropping the bottom out of the market. The new plan legalizes this gentleman’s agreement, said Mr. Potter. Alberta producers grew 1825 million pounds of turkey in 1973 The quota under the new national plan remains the same for 1974 Mr, Potter stressed that the new plan for controlled production will have no bearing on turkey prices at the consumer level. The plan is aimed at the producer only. He said the marketing boards in Canada will ensure that there are adequate supplies of turkey to meet aU needs. The controls will also ensure there aren’t too many produced to create the sutplus supply situation. The plan will mean producers can run their operations on the understanding they will be able to sell all of their production at a good price. This will mean many producers will be able to stay in business this year. Herman Lowen of Fort Macleod, who will market-150,000 turkeys in 1974, said the new plan will help to keep the Alberta turkey picture far more efficient. The assurance of good prices WiU aUow producers to expand as the Alberta quota increases. He said all of Alberta’s 80 or 90 turkey producers will be able to stay in business because they can sell their product for a profit.
