Saskatoon Council on Aging - Age-friendly community


Bishop Klein Partnership

Partnerships in Education is a relationship linking an organization with a Catholic school. The Saskatoon Council on Aging is in partnership with Bishop Klein school.


The Council entered into a partnership in the fall of 2000 and made this partnership official on October 25th, 2001 during a partnership signing ceremony and liturgy. We have worked together on a number of joint ventures including an inter-generational cookbook entitled "Cooking Through the Ages". Bishop Klein students have provided artwork for display in the Council on Aging office.


Past involvement included Council on Aging providing Bishop Klein students with hand-knitted mittens for the winter months and guest visitors for our pioneer theme activities.

At "Spotlight on Seniors" in October at TCU Place students from Bishop Klein assist in several ways.  They operated the coat check and ran errands.  They gave special attention to members of the Century Club who were honoured guests.


The Bishop Klein school choir has entertained at Century Club events and they have hosted Century Club teas at the school.


Volunteers are also welcomed to listen to students read at the the School. Check with Council at 652-2255 for information on this and other activities with Bishop Klein.
