Yesterday evening, local dignitaries and members of the school community joined Greater St. Albert Catholic Schools to witness the unveiling of two legacy murals at Sister Alphonse Academy! We were blessed have Father McSheffrey join us from St. Albert Parish to offer an Opening Prayer, as well as MLA Marie Renaud to share a few opening remarks. We are grateful to the six representatives of the Grey Nuns who joined us as guests of honour, who assisted in the unveiling of "The Humble Seamstress" mural! Artists from the local community were also in attendance, eager to see their contributions to "The Tree of Life" mural.
A big congratulations to the Sister Alphonse school community and to local artists and the team at Mural Mosaic for completing these two beautiful, original pieces of art. They will serve as reminders of the story of Catholic Education in our region and the foundational legacy on which our school division was built. This school year will mark the 155th anniversary since the first school opening in the region in 1864.
"The Humble Seamstress" Mural will be installed in the front entrance of the school, while the "The Tree of Life" Mural will hang inside the school in the main foyer. Final installation is expected to be completed over the next few weeks.
