When students, staff and community members walk through the doors of Dr. Anne Anderson High School, they’ll discover thoughtful features that pay tribute to Dr. Anne Anderson’s contributions. Her legacy of preserving the Cree language and Métis heritage is woven into the building’s inspiring architecture, and that inspiring legacy flows through the visioning of the school and the creation of our new logo concept.
Dr. Anderson’s initials create tipi-like shapes that speak to both her legacy and the school’s unique architecture. The strong triangles also represent the way the school helps to ground our students in their community. This learning community will support students through their unique journeys, as they move toward graduation and reach for their goals, the way the tip of the triangle reaches skyward.
The colours in the schools' interior and exterior are reflected in the logo; the blue center is reflective of natural elements, such as water or the sky, that were valued and served as a sense of peace and inspiration to Dr. Anne Anderson.
As the school is gradually surrounded by new and growing neighbourhoods, it will serve as a hub that unites a diverse group of students, faculty, staff and family members. This ability to foster belonging is celebrated by our logo's intersecting lines, which symbolize connection and emphasize the school as a gathering place - not just for students, but also for the greater community.
