The school board must make deci- sions to help achieve this re- sponse. I support the innovative ap- proach to education that we find in Lethbridge and would like to see us work toward a further innovation the estab- lishment of kindergartens in Lethbridge as part, of the pio- vincially supported public school system, nort; CARD Doaglrs Card.

One of the most significant in public school board policy in the past two vears has been the concept of Ihe advisory council. The council enables every-. one involved in education, in- cluding parents; to have a voice in school policy. There arc many othsr crea- tive and innovative ideas that I will work for in the next three years ideas that will! I icp the Lcthbridge public! s bool system foremost in the j mcc. man of the hoard.

During my 1C years as trus- tee of the Lethbridge Catholic separate school district, I have seen the system grow in size ,md in quality, and it is my in- tention to ensure oven greater improvement in the future. We are living in a period of Irials. tribulations and even revolution. It is. therefore, par- amount that we maintain a prcper sense of values in the soirilual, mental, physical and e-ial develooment of the chil drcn who attend our Catholic S Scotland and came to Canada in 1919. Mr. Mulgrew is married and has Ihree children. The separate school system is a good one which Ihe pio- neers wonted I'ard in imple- ment. I will do everything pos- sible lo keep it in operation. I will work toward implemen- tation of a non compulsory kindergarten program of at least two hours duralion. I would like to stress the technical vocational aspect of high school. I feel specialized personnel such as speech and reined i a 1 reading specialists slraiild be made available. A meeting should he held al least once a year. dilation to allow those v.-ho desire lo continue their educa- tion in an institution of higher learning. .Students who end thsir for- mal education in high school should be provided with the best possible selection of voca- lional courses lo prepare thsm for a place economically in our society Teacher student relation- ships should be emphasized so that the teacher has an interest in the student as a person. students to attain the best pos- sible foundation in basic sub- jecls. I would demand qualified teachers in family life pro- grams and seek placement of the best qualified teachers where they can do the most good. .Ichnscn. 62. was principal of the Lelhhridgt Junior College before he rt tired in 1967.

I belie v e education is cur number one investment, m only from an economic point cf view but from th-j point of view of enabling our students to de vclop as 'committed Christian citizens. I support local autonomy to the degree that it is consistent with the achievement of our goals. Although I fed education has top priority, not every expendi- ture is essential, as it is prin- cipally a question of obtaining the best value for our education dollar.

I believe thai schools must help students to become full members of the community. To do this, the people of the community must have a closer relationship with schools so that their aims and those cf the educators are in harmony. I believe in involving many more parents in educational i decisions, making more com-1 munity use of schools, chang- ing the curriculum where it. is not now relevant and maintain- ing a high standard for teach- ers in the school system.

Because of our changing so- ciely. I believe that the con- tinued process of humanizing our schools is necessary in or- der that our children develop understanding of themselves and others.

To achieve tlvsc goals, the efficient oper a t i o n of our schools is necessary so that our lax dollars will bo besl-ulilizod.
