Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 2, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, September 2, 1970 PROPOSED WEST LETHBRIDGE SHOPPING CENTRE Commercial Complex Slated For West Side Construction is' to start next year on West Lethbridge's commercial complex, Art Batty, president of Meadow- lark Park Development Ltd., announced today. The complex is to be a neigh- borhood shopping centre and not a regional centre, he said. It will have approximately 16 stores, including a bowling al- ley, theatre, large grocery store and professional oriices. It will be built in stages, within five years, as demand warrants. The centre will be similar to the College Mall with two banks of stores con- Changes Planned By Time Airways Get; 25 is daylight saving time change-over day for all travel ling Albertans and it means a schedule change for Time Air ways Ltd. W. R. (Stubb) Koss, presi dent of Time Air said today his firm will have to change its schedule to maintain con- nections with all the other air firms operating out of Calgary, Red Deer and Edmonton. Mr. Boss said Time Air will be expanding service to various centres at the change date or when business warrants. He said as of Oct. 25, there will be three instead of two through flights from Leth- hridge to Edmonton, all stop- ping in Calgary and Hed Deer in compliance with the Canadi- an Transport Commiss ion ruling which gaye Time Air the regional carrier rights for the route. Mr. Boss said the Medicine Hat to Calgary route, which carried only 224 passengers in July compared to from Lethbridge to Calgary for the same period would not be dropped from Time Airways schedule. "We just received a perma- nent licence to serve Medicine Hat and we expect to have about 600 passengers for Octob- he said. Time had been operating the route on a tem- porary DOT licence after Mel Air of Swift Current had dropped it. He indicated when the pas- ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC Certified Dental Mechanic Metropolitan Bldo. 328-4095 senger total for Medicine Hat to Calgary reached 500 he would add one flight daily in and out of Medicine Hat. Mr. Ross said there would be a slight adjustment to the Med- icine Hat-Calgary route after Oct. 25. "At this time, we will continue two daily flights but one of them will leave Medi- cine Hat for Calgary and re- turn via Lethbridge. !'This will mean a conven- ience generally because the service between Lethbridge and Medicine Hat will once again be used and the flight time on the return flight from Calgary to Medicine Hat will only be lengthened by about 20 minutes. People flying Medi- cine Hat to Lethbridge would have to make connections in Calgary." He said this would mean there would be six daily flights out of Lethbridge for Calgary and seven flights from Cal- gary to Lethbridge. Mr. Boss said there will be one extra flight from Calgary to Edmonton, increasing the daily flights to three from two. Time Airways began regular scheduled services in 1966 on he Lefhbridge-Calgary route and business has picked up over per cent in the in- tervening four years. "The ultimate aim of the air- ine is to have half-day service Detween points served by the he said, "and this would mean that any person can eave one of the cities served and return from any other point within a half day."

The kindergarten and Head Start prcgams began in earn- est for about 190 Indian students between the ages of four (Head Start) and eight (transitional Grade 2 The build ing, constructed mostly with federal funds, cost about to complete and is built on the open area con- cept for team teaching. The total Indian education complex is valued at million. Grant Matkin, superintendent of the Cardston School Division No. 2 which is the controlling agent for the school complex, said the kindergarten unit, or Pod C, will be used only for me children unless financial arrangements can be worked out to enable the non native children to use the facilities. He said the kindergarten pro- jram for non native children in Cardston has no financial support from the provincial or federal government level. "The private kindergarten, operated in the town for some ime, has made application to be combined with the Indian school but the operators have >een unable to get financial as- sistance to do he said. "The combining of the two dndergarten systems is very desirable and the school divi- sion, the organization of parents and the department of Indian affairs seem to think the com- bination will be good for the ocial and language learning jrocess of both groups." STAFF OF ELEVEN There are 11 staff members working in the kindergarten, ncludi n g five kindergarten j teachers, two teachers for the I group going from the reserve transitional Grades 1 and 21 into a learning atmosphere but are ready for and know what the system of cducaiton is all about." The children in Mrs. Laird's class attend from 9 a.m. to classes and four native teacher aides. In addition, one woman is responsible for preparing lunches for the 190 children registered for the term. Since the children are divided by age and ability, there are different areas for diffcrenl children. The four year olds Ere placed in the Head Starl program, a morning only pro- gram designed to ready the child for full time in the actual kindergarten program. Ada Blackmore, in charge of the headstarf program, said the idea is to get children to ex- press themselves. "Activities with action songs, games and films which call for student participation help the children to be free to speak and play with other she said. "It all goes toward helping the children get over the langu- age and social barrier so they can become well enough ad- justed to go into a full day of kindergarten.'' 'She said the kindergarten has washers, dryers and tubs, everything necessary to look after children of this age group. The teacher aides are re- sponsible for looking after the children while they are not being taught and during the lunch play period. SENIOR DIVISION Delta Laird, in charge of the senior division of the kinder- garten program, said the sys- tem used is ungraded, allowing jie clu'ldren to move ahead at iheir own pace. She said she teaches lan- guage arts, numerical con- cepts, reading readiness and phonetics. "By the end of June, the children are ready for Grade 1 and actually they are off to a lead she said. "They are ro longer a shy a.m. and from 1 p.m. to p.m. Mrs. Laird said the children are kept so busy there is no problem with discipline. "When the faster students get finished an assignment, they ore allowed to do anything they want." The students' attending the education complex are bused from home in four 38-passen- ger, and two 18 passenger school buses. REGISTERING 111 THEIR OWN SCHOOL- Long service kindergarten teacher Ada Blackmore registers another family of kindergarten-age children at the New Kainai- owned schcol in Card.iton. There were 190 chi Idren registered today for the various depart- ments in the kindergarten unit of the school.
