||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.
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.
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."
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.
