For Students

Tom Baines (1901-1991) was the curator of the Calgary Zoo from 1929-1964. He also was greatly involved with the Canadian Scouting Movement in Calgary. When Tom 'retired' from being the curator of the Calgary Zoo, he began to visit Calgary and district schools.

From 1968-1990 a million students were introduced to his "Gimmick bag" and pet snake Agnes on these visits. We are proud to carry the name of such an outstanding citizen. Mr. Baines' legacy sets the example of citizenship, service, and proficiency for all the students who are, or who will be, part of this school. We know the school will be a continuing reminder of his contributions to our community.
