Welcome to
Whispering Hills Primary School!

Located in Athabasca, Whispering Hills Primary School offers Kindergarten to Grade 3 in a dual track (English and French Immersion) program.

We are proud to be a Bucket Filling school! The bucket represents a person’s emotional bank account for mental and emotional health. A person who is a “bucket filler” is a person who says or does caring things that makes others feel special. When you make someone feel special, you are filling their bucket. When you fill another person’s bucket, you’re also filling your own.

We value family involvement, as families are a child’s first educators. We have many opportunities for families to be involved in the school, such as volunteering in the classroom, assisting with Family Lunch Days or the morning breakfast program, or serving on the Fundraising Committee or School Council.

WHPS is an APPLE School. We strive to promote wellness and create environments that foster lifelong health and wellness by making the healthy choice, the easy choice. We also make apples available for students, provide a healthy snack once per week for each grade level, have milk available for purchase on a cost-recovery basis, and hold monthly ‘taste tests’ for students to try healthy food options.

Literacy and numeracy are embedded in all areas of learning and teachers embed literacy strategies in their lessons regardless of subject matter. Our Leveled Literacy interventions in both the English and French Immersion programs provide opportunities for students to increase their literacy skills. Hands-on activities and mental math strategies are used in the classroom to enhance numeracy skills.

Mindfulness and self-regulation are important skills for students to learn so that they can better manage their emotions throughout the day. This leads to enhanced learning opportunities as students reflect on their actions and how their actions affect others.
