The development of a feel* ing of student pride and self -worth, a desire in the student for learning now and in the future and communication skills received the highest rating when a group of parents, teachers and students listed its educational goals Tuesday. The Lethbridge Collegiate Institute school council also felt it was important that students learn to respect and get along with other people as well as gain an appreciation for the fine arts. Other purposes of schools included on the council’s list of goals were the development of the student’s ability to examine and use information, an understanding of good physical health, a desire to use leisure time productively, the ability to establish a value system and the ability to use numbers effectively m everyday life. The council’s educational goals list will now be presented to the public school board as an informaUon item * * ♦ Overcrowded school buses and the inconsistent time schedule of some bus drivers were cited Tuesday as two of the major problems students face during the winter months. Student representatives on the council suggested overcrowded school buses FURNACES (IN STOCK) SUET METAL WORK POWER HUMIDIFIERS AIR COWNTIOMNG br and JUccnRcfr^era^ 2214-4M SI. S. 327-5818 were creating a dangerous and uncomfortable situation for students while a teacher representative expressed hope that something would be done to eliminate overcrowding before “somebody gets hurt.” Reed Enckson, school vice -principal, called the busing of students "one of the real headaches” of the school system. As the city grows, the number of students eligible to ride the bus increases because the new residential developments are usually beyond the VA mile eligibility distance and with every day, it IS difficult to keep bus populations balanced, Mr. Erickson points out. Problems related to school busing will again be discussed at the February meeting of the council and any recommendations resulting from that meeting will be forwarded to the school board. The views expressed by the council were similar to those voiced Monday by the Lethbridge Council of Home and School Associations The home and school council will be asking parents in the city to voice their views on school busing during the next month and it too will then forward a summary of the parental opinion to the trustees ♦ • • In other council business, Jack McCracken, a parent representative, suggested that the LCI council should become more involved in political issues that directly affect the high school. “If there are opinions to be expressed, we should speak out,” he insisted The student representatives on the council must present the concerns of the LCI students to the council if it is to be a productive organization, he suggests Graydon Gehm, chairman and an LCI student, agreed with Mr McCracken suggestions and indicated that he would sfttempt to obtain more student input at the next meeting. * * * The council also agreed to hold the annual spring semester gathering of all LCI parents and teachers after the report cards are issued iJi the last week of March. By holding the gathering after the report cards are issued, the council felt parents would then be provided with an opportunity to discuss their children’s academic standards with the teachers. In other years, the gathering was always held before report cards were issued. It was also suggested that a reminder of the date of the gathering should be sent out to parents with the report cards to save the cost of mailing a notice of the gathering or the trouble of forming a committee to phone all parents of LCI students.

Ut>SI7J Meet planned to discuss health study school use of county schools will be discussed during the next county school committee meeting Feb. 19. The principals opted to retain the existing policy and turned down an Oldman River Regional Recreation Board proposal that it become the booking agency for after -school activities in county schools. The school committee took no action on the matter at a Jan. 15 meeting asking for a recommendation from the principals. The principals discussed the community use of schools at a meeting last Thursday. The final decision on the issue will be made by the county. The recreation bo?rd, at a December school committee meeting, made the proposal which would have meant both school and recreation board activities would be booked through the north and south county recreation boards. The board cited difficulty in setting its programs as basis for the recommendation. In supporting the existing policy, the principals said the current system should be flexible enough to allow for differences in the amount of recreation activities scheduled for smaller and the larger schools. By GEORGE STEPHENSON Herald Staff Writer The steering committee for a comprehensive health study in Lethbridge will meet with the Alberta Hospital Services Commission March 8 to discuss a long • range planning study. John Moreland, chairman of the board for the Lethbridge Municipal Hospital and member of the steering committee, says the meeting here will be to discuss financing, planning and implementaticm of conclusions drawn. The health study, which will include Lethbrid^ and district, is to determine the health and social needs of communities in the Southern Alberta region. The idea of a health study originated more than two years ago when the city had to requisition taxpayers to cover hospital deficits. Mr Moreland explains the city approached the hospital services commission — a semi - autonomous government commission in charge of hospital operations in the province — and asked that a study begin “People, for quite a few years, were asking questions why two institutions two blocks apart should have the same^ervices . . they wondered about duplication of services," he says. The commission then last fall asked the two hospital boards to get together and decide on the terms of reference for such a study. The Alberta Systems Development Group which Is in partnership with the Alberta Hospitals Association, the AHSC and the University of Alberta will administer the study. The two hospital boards have agreed to the study and have formed a steering committee of six people. A representative from St. Michael’s and the Municipal Hospital in Lethbridge, two representatives from other hospitals in the region, a physician from the rural area and one from other hospitals in the region, a physician from the rural area and one from Lethbridge are on the committee. The area covered by the study will range from Taber to the Crowsnest Pass and from just south of aaresholm to the U.S. border, Mr. Moreland adds- The steering committee will begin selecting a task force which will complete the study under the direction of the steering committee and co -ordinate subcommittee activities Subcommittees will be responsible for investigation of particular aspects of the project such &s disaster plan-' ning, ambulance service, health workers, public health, and travelling clinics. “Detailed work plans will be developed by thé task force and will include complete identification of the work to be done, assignment of responsibilities, preparation of the schedule for doing the work and estimate of the costs,” an outline of the study reads. It -adds since many people and organizations are affected by the project it is considered essential the organization can be structured so wide participation is encouraged and the project can be controlled and managed Disabled on Move hampered A lack of funds is hampering operations of a group formed to investigate the needs of the physically handicapped. Disabled on the Move, which has applied for funding from various sources, has had to cut back on a city-wide survey of b-iildings because there are few funds to continue, Gerald Trechka, spiAesman for the group, said Tuesday. The survey, which will be renewed in April or May, is to assess the accessibility of public buildings for handicapped persons. Although the community services department of the city has given some funds for the survey, other requests to various agencies and programs including local initiatives have been turned down. The group will keep looking for areas which may fund the various projects, Mr. Trechka said. He added the survey has been hampered by a lack of transportation for participants ~ another area the organization has made a priority. Because the physically disabled cannot get around to the various buildings without specialized transportation, this problem will also have to be investigated. Transportation for the disabled will be the topic at the groups next meeting Feb. 5. CHUIMOMtilllMwric CLIFF ILACK, BUCK DENTAL UB ■EacuKaniut.
