Greater North Central Francophone Education Region No. 2

The Greater North Central Francophone Education Region No. 2, known in French as the Conseil scolaire Centre-Nord, is one of Alberta's four French language school boards. French language education is intended for children who are eligible under section 23 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms; the CSCN is a composite board, operating both public and catholic francophone schools in Beaumont, Edmonton, Fort McMurray, Legal, Red Deer, Sherwood Park, St. Albert and Wainwright; the CSCN receives funding for all students from the provincial Government of Alberta. In 1993, the Government of Alberta adopted a bill amending the School Act to comply with Mahe v. Alberta, a leading Supreme Court of Canada decision on the minority language education rights under section 23 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms; the district was created in 1994 under section 223.3 of the School Act under the name Regional Authority of the North Central Francophone Education Region No. 4. It is one of four French school boards in Alberta.

According to the School Act, the seven members of the Board of Trustees are elected to represent francophone communities in central and northern Alberta. The composite regional Authority's mandate is to protect the linguistic and confessional rights of section 23 holders; the CSCN updates its list of electors by carrying out a census. Results of the census determine the proportion of Public school Trustees and Catholic school Trustees to be elected to the Board; the Catholic trustees constitute a separate entity – Conseil scolaire catholique Centre-Nord – according to section 255.4 of the School Act. Based on the 2010 census, there are two Public school trustees and five Catholic school trustees. In 2016-2017 school year, there were 3,200 students attending 19 schools in total: 9 elementary schools, 1 elementary/junior high school, 1 junior high school, 2 junior/senior high school, 5 elementary/junior/senior high schools, 1 senior high school; the CSCN employs 350 teachers and professionals.

Frederik Christian Winsløw

Frederik Christian Winsløw was a Danish surgeon. He was chief surgeon at Frederick's Hospital from 1781 to 1795, professor of anatomy and surgery at the Royal Danish Academy of Surgery from its foundation in 1785 and was appointed as court surgeon in 1802, he died unmarried and granted most of his estate to the hospital as well as to the associated Fødselsstiftelsen. Winsløw was born in Copenhagen, the son of medal engraver Peter Christian Winsløw and Anna Dorothea Siewers. In 1756, his father brought him along when he left the country to pursuit a new life in Russia but left him in Stockholm from where he was returned to his mother in Copenhagen, he served in the household of a maternal uncle from an early age. The uncle, a barber from Christianshavn, taught him the trade of surgery. At the age of 14 he began to receive training at Grederick's Hospital where chief surgeon Alexander Kølpin "accustomed his ear and hand to the surgical profession", he began to follow Heinrich Callisen's lectures at the Theatrum Anatomico-chirurgicum and was trained in dissection by Georg Heuermann.

He followed the lectures of V. Hennings and Johan Clemens Tode. In 1769 the anatomist and botanist Christen Friis Rottbøll made the hard-working and ambitious seventeen-year-old student his prosector and that same year he was appointed to army company surgeon. Callisen now saw to his further education at the Theatrum Anatomico-chirurgicum and after his return to Denmark from a journey abroad in 1771 secured him a position as assistant surgeon at the søkvæsthuset; that same year he enrolled at the University of Copenhagen where he, in 1773, became prosector and began to lecture. In 1774-77, Winsløw served as surgeon at Frederick's Hospital, first under Kølpin and under J. E. Behrens. In 1777, assisted by royal physician J. C. J. v. Berger, a member of the hospital's board of directors, Winsløw obtained a royal travel stipend, he went to Paris where the memory of his relative, the anatomist Jacob B. Winslow, opened all doors, he studied under Pierre-Joseph Desault but under Raphaël Bienvenu Sabatier and Jean-Louis Baudelocque.

From Paris he continued to London where he studied under William and John Hunter. Winsløw returned to Denmark in 1780 and succeeded Behrens as head surgeon at Frederick's Hospital the following year, he represented the surgeons in the gfeud against the physicians with Callisen as his direct opponent. He was appointed to professor of anatomy and surgery when the Royal Danish Academy of Surgery was founded in the 1785, he operated a lucrative private practice. He eas succeeded by H. C. F. Schumacher in 1795 but remained active at the Royal Danish Academy of Surgery, he was the first in the country to hold weekly clinical-surgical lectures. Winsløw's few written works from his early career are insignificant, his observations during the dissection of cats and dog of respiratory movements of fetuses intra ovum enabled P. Scheels to write his thesis on this subject. Inspired by his time in London, he was active in the debate on vaccinations. In 1801 he made the first successful Cowpox vaccinations in the country, using lymph acquired directly from Edward Jenner.

He was an active member of the Vaccination Commission. During the siege and bombardment of Copenhagen, Winsløw was responsible for organizing the lazarets and acted as head surgeon at one of them, he was appointed as court surgeon in 1801. He became a member of the new sundhedskollegium as well as of the Royal Medical Society in 1803. Winsløw never married, his ability to work was inhibited by increasing problems with dropsy during the lat years of his life which caused his death. He left most of his estate to Fødselsstiftelsen. One of the apartments in Gammel kloster was named F. C. Winsløw's Apartment after him
