The Grande Prairie Public School District is proud to announce the grand opening of its eighteenth school: Roy Bickell Public School. This year, we were honoured to have the Honourable David Eggen, Minister of Alberta Education, in attendance. The event was scheduled for Thursday, November 30, 2017 from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Roy Bickell Public School: Roy Bickell was a pioneer in the Grande Prairie area who was passionate about education, history, business and industry in Grande Prairie and the surrounding area. Mr. Bickell loved to seek out new fossil finds after his retirement. It is hoped that the students of Roy Bickell Public School will inherit his passion for exploration and seek all opportunities to discover new knowledge through active engagement in the community.
