New Secondary School offers Grades 11 & 12 Science for the First Time.


The Sir Edmund Hillary Foundation in conjunction with the Rotary Club of West Calgary and the Local NGO has built “The Zeke O’Connor High School” in the village of Phaplu.

Over the last three years much has taken place at the Zeke O’Connor School site! Many classrooms have been added, also a library, a computer lab and a biology laboratory have been built. The High School now has advanced the first 30 students to grade 11 and added 90 more on the way in grades 9 and 10. This year grade 11 will commence with the advanced science courses being taught.
