Fort McMurray's School Stories
Heritage Park
Fort McMurray , Alberta


population and the town of
Fort McMurray have increased
extensively. 100 years later,
there are now 13 Public
Schools, including an Islamic
School, a Christian School,
an outreach school, and
several bilingual and French
Immersion schools. Our
community also has 10

Catholic Schools and a
Catholic School Board that
came into being in 1936.
   This exhibit will display
the changes, improvements,
additions, and challenges
that have been faced by the
citizens of Fort McMurray and
the school boards over the
last century. We hope this

will help us learn from the
past as we press on into a
new century of education in
Northern Alberta.
   This exhibit was
researched, written, and
compiled by Sarah Robertson.
