In order to operate the numerous excellent programs Bishop Grandin offers for our students we rely on generous donations from partners, individuals and businesses. As our funding challenges continue we are asking parents to use their employment or personal contacts to encourage corporate or individual sponsorship of the school‘s extracurricular programs. Tax receipts are available. Please contact the principal email@example.com if you require more information.
Thanks to our Partners and Sponsors! Some of the generous donations to support our school are listed below.

American Motor Corporation – Christmas Car Card Entry
Our Christmas Car Card Entry by Gary Thoreson and BGHS Media student Natasha Van Veen. Natasha is a grade 12 with a great imagination and tremendous potential. Merry Christmas form Gary and Natasha to all of you.
The students worked with this pedal car and modified it into a usable car that most students can operate. With your donation of filler, primer, paint and sand paper they were able to get the body prepped for painting and after adding a special touches like rear lighting, a compass, and decals it was ready for the World of Wheels. Friday February 20th 2015 six hundred students were admitted into the display area with weekend passes and were able to see many vehicles that show the passion that goes into these cars. Saturday was judging for the pedal cars. Four of the five cars were on display from different high schools and our pedal car was awarded the second place red ribbon and award plaque.

Since January 26th 2011, Our Lady Queen of Peace Foundation (Canada) Inc. and the Calgary Catholic School District have joined together to provide and an alternate fundraising endeavour for Calgary Catholic Schools. This endeavour is mutually beneficial enabling the schools to access additional funding not covered by general budgets while providing OLQOP Foundation with a service through the packaging of Rosaries for national and international distribution. The Bishop Grandin Music Program is fortunate to be part of such a partnership and over the last two months, the students and parents from the band and choir programs have been busy packaging rosaries to be shipped to English, French and Swahili speaking countries. This activity is an expression of our Catholic Faith in action and encourages student and parent involvement. We thank Our Lady Queen of Peace Foundation for such a great opportunity!
