JULY 10, 2019 MEETING – SPEAKER – JACQUELINE GRESKO

July 10 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm UTC-8

“Going to School in New Westminster 1881 and 1894:
St. Ann’s Academy and St. Louis College and public schools.”
The talk will outline the curriculum and student experience at Catholic private schools as well as some
comparison of public schools in the city. Two themes from research are: first, the Catholic schools and the
public schools had separate buildings and/or classrooms for boys and girls. But all schools had a common
curriculum; and second, there was remarkable harmony between Catholic and public schools in an era of
political and religious conflict. The presentation will conclude with comments on recent digitization of nineteenth century
publications and government records, for example, the Catholic diocesan publication, The Month for the 1890s, and the BC
Education Department records, that help in tracing family history as well as education history.
