New North Lethbridge Elementary School Named! - Sep 24,2015
 

The Board of Trustees for the Holy Spirit Catholic School Division is pleased to announce that the name of the new north side Lethbridge elementary school that is being constructed in Legacy Ridge will be Blessed Mother Teresa.

Early in June, the division put out a call to community members, canvassing for potential names from which the Board reviewed. Based on community feedback, the Board shortlisted four possible choices and determined that the final decision would be made at the September Regular Board Meeting.

Trustee Pat Bremner, who brought forward the recommendation, said that it was the meeting with the division's FNMI Wisdom and Visioning Circle that provided tremendous insight on the shortlisted names. "When you ask for the advice of our Elders you never get just a yes or no answer - you get a story filled with rich and meaningful lessons. By the end of our discussion it was clear that Blessed Mother Teresa was the right name for this school." 

Since Blessed Mother Teresa was the most popular choice provided by community, the Board was pleased to approve the recommendation.  It was further noted that the name and the lessons learned from the life of this beatified woman both reflect the Catholic values that we wish to emulate in our schools and remain true to the ‘tribute to pioneering women' theme that is woven into the Legacy Ridge community.
