Not one but three Faculty of Education events took place during 2017 Alumni Week!
Tuesday, May 2, 50 École normale alumni attended a high tea, a popular Alumni Week event, to celebrate 50 years or more since they graduated in education. Dean Richard Barwell hosted the event, and had the pleasure of meeting alumni individually as he went from table to table. We also kicked off the presale of our 50th anniversary book.
That evening, Professor David Paré had a full house for his talk entitled “Saved by a Story: The Healing Power of Narrative.” Many alumni, new and old, were in the audience, all absorbed by Paré’s talk.
Finally, the culmination of Alumni Week, the Faculty of Education’s 50th anniversary celebration, took place Thursday, May 4 at the Resource Centre. In front of over 100 people, a panel featuring seven distinguished alumni discussed the topic “Looking Back, Looking Forward: 50 Years of Excellence and Innovation in Education.” Thanks to Denise André, Édith Dumont, Brigitte Murray, Carole Myre, Roger Paul, Anita Tenasco and Deanna Van Zeeland for taking part and making outstanding contributions to the discussion.
The evening also featured the presentation of the Outstanding Alumni Award to Mariette Carrier-Fraser and Huguette Labelle.
