Our mission statement was developed by staff, students, and members of our School Council and states: King Albert students, staff, and school council are all members of a learning community together:
- To provide a safe and welcoming school environment
- To provide a challenging curriculum which expands mind, body, and character
- To focus on student success
- To support goal-setting for life-long learning
King Albert Public School was originally named the South Ward School when it was built around 1912, but following World War I the name was changed in honour of King Albert of Belgium. King Albert displayed great bravery as he lead his army of soldiers during the war, and continued throughout his life to rebuild his country after it was badly damaged by enemy bombs. He was a great example of loyalty and hard work, a perfect person to name a school after.
Today, King Albert PS is a junior kindergarten to grade 6 school with a focus on character education for both staff and students.
King Albert PS runs a balanced day timetable.
Our resource program focuses on developing literacy skills beginning with early identification in kindergarten.
