Early this year, during Spring Break, LFA unveiled our new Heritage Wall. The Heritage Wall serves as a showcase of LFA’s rich history as a school since 1927.
The wall features a timeline of key milestones in LFA’s history; a land acknowledgement; the broader story of the Sisters of St. Ann, and the role they played in founding LFA and building its legacy; and, a list of the many schools and hospitals founded or served by the Sisters of St. Ann across British Columbia. LFA’s hope with the Heritage Wall is that it accurately reflects our shared history as we commit ourselves to teaching the truth about the residential school system, deepening our collective understanding of the inter-generational harm it caused, and contributing to the larger process of reconciliation and healing.
As the Heritage Wall reflects LFA’s deep history to all who walk by, we hope too that it inspires our students to reflect on all they will yet accomplish.
