St. Teresa’s Elementary or Mundy Pond Elementary?
We have been told by government that the denominational school system has be abolished. Yet, as we build new schools in our communities, the naming of them continues to retain blatant religious overtones. Now is the time for the school board in St. John’s to show the public that the old denominational overtones are not included as a factor in naming our educational institutions.
Let’s have the courage to have community names on our newly constructed schools. The public should be happy with neutrality.
Who was St. Teresa? She wasn’t a saint of mine! Why should my children have to attend this school? This new, public funded school!
