CBE teacher receives Chef of the Year Award

Pat Thalheimer, Principal Lester B. Pearson & Martin Makulowich, Teacher Chef

Martin Makulowich, a journeyman red seal chef and teacher working on a letter of authority at Lester B. Pearson High School, is the recipient of this year’s “Chef of the Year Award.”

The Calgary Academy of Chefs and Cooks recognizes one chef each year who has demonstrated a long-term commitment towards promoting the Association or publicizing this chosen profession locally and/or nationally, involvement in Academy or Nationally-sanctioned functions, and participation in culinary salons or other public demonstrations.

Chef Martin has been teaching for three years at Lester B. Pearson High School. With the support of his kitchen staff and students, over 250 homemade meals are made each week as part of the Foods and Culinary programs. In addition to feeding the members of this learning community, it is not rare to see Chef Martin involved in cooking outside of the classroom. This year, he catered the Better Together Partnership Breakfast, the Cinderella Project, and the March Board of Trustees meeting in support of work that students are involved in with Career and Technology Studies (CTS).

Pat Thalheimer, Principal of Lester B. Pearson is also very proud of Chef Martin. “Martin is an excellent teacher and role model, both in terms of his culinary experience and the way he lives his life!”

On behalf of the staff and students at Lester B. Pearson High School, and the Calgary Board of Education, congratulations Chef Martin!

Congrats to the LBP Unified Basketball Team!

Unified Basketball June 2016

Dear Patriot Families:

This past Friday, 22 dedicated athletes competed in the second ever Unified Basketball tournament at the University of Calgary. For the last 3 months these students had been practicing every Tuesday and Thursday at lunch, to prepare for this event. They played Bishop McNally and Bert Church and ended the tournament 1-1.
This was a very special day for Patriot Athletics and I’m very proud of all our athletes who wore the maple leaf. A big thank you to Mr. Pearson, Mr. Sayer and Ms. Woodworth for giving up their lunches and helping me coach. I have already committed to fielding a team for next year. Unified Basketball will now be a part of our athletic program.

Go Patriots!
