7th Annual EIPS/ATB Young Speakers Invitational
You are cordially invited to come and support your school’s three representatives at this year’s 7th Annual EIPS/ATB Young Speakers Invitational.
By participating in the speech program, each school will have first and foremost helped students develop an understanding of the benefits and styles of speaking, focusing on the ability to persuade, inform and entertain listeners. All the students involved, either at the championship or at the school level, have gained life-long skills.
Members of the various school communities comprising the 24 participating schools will be drawn together to support their students on April 30th. Cooperation and connectedness between the schools and the community is greatly enhanced by this event, as students from all walks of life can step forward and voice their opinions.
At the event there will be a silent auction with proceeds going the Robin Hood Association. Just some of the items are:
- Family vacation packages
- Rexall Place Sky Suites
- Eskimo and Oilers Tickets
- Spa and Health club services
- Professional Teeth Whitening
And many others ……..
There will also be a raffle where speakers and guests can drop their ticket in hopes of taking home one of the many themed baskets provided by participating schools.
We hope to see you at the Agora in County Hall on Thursday, April 30th. Doors open at 4:00 pm when food service and the auction commence. Speakers begin at 5:15 with the final round starting at 7:30.
For more information please contact Jordan Smith at Brentwood School. Jordan.email@example.com

Kindergarten Bussing FAQ
When do I need to register my child for bus service for the fall?
You can contact Student Transportation following the Spring Break to register.
Is noon time busing available?
In urban Sherwood Park noon service is available although ride times can range from 30-90 minutes in length depending on enrollment and the pick-up or drop-off location. In Fort Saskatchewan noon bus service is only available to and from daycares. Day home service is not available at noon. A fee for all noon busing is applicable.
Is there a transfer for the noon busing? What happens at the transfer and where is it?
There is a small transfer for urban Sherwood Park noon busing behind the Sherwood Park Mall.
Students board a bus at their pick-up location and may be required to board another bus that will transport them to their designated drop off location. There is a Safety Monitor at this site assisting students in locating their assigned bus.
