Welcome to the St. Mary's IB web page and the IB North School. My name is Catherine Harradence, and I am the IB coordinator. My job is to assist students with inquiries, requests or concerns they have regarding the IB programme. This includes helping students to select appropriate courses, counseling them through concerns they have with a course and ensuring they meet all the requirements set down by the IBO for awarding the IB Diploma.

If you are considering the International Baccalaureate Programme please read through the information presented here to thoroughly familiarize yourself with all that IB at St. Mary's has to offer.

As a last comment there is an ever increasing recognition of the IB programme, and especially the IB Diploma, by universities in Canada, the U.S. and worldwide, as a result universities actively recruit our students with many receiving offers of large scholarships. In addition to monetary gain there is the potential for advanced placement in courses, advanced credit and second year status at universities.

I look forward to working with this year's students and please do not hesitate to forward your questions to me. I am always available to students and parents either through email cathy.harradence@cssd.ab.ca or by calling 403-500-2024 (ex. 399). In addition you should visit ibo.org for an overview of the IB Programme.

I wish you all the best.
Cathy Harradence
IB Coordinator
