• Lieutenant Governor visits school dedicated to his father

    When His Honour the Honourable W. Thomas Molloy, Lieutenant Governor of Saskatchewan, paid a visit to students at St. George School on Tuesday, March 12, it was personal.

    Molloy did not attend the school; his connection goes back his father, George T. Molloy.

    The school is named after St. George, a third-century Roman martyr, and was dedicated to the elder Molloy, the school division's first full-time secretary-treasurer (1961 – 79).

    "Students and staff at our school community were excited to hear His Honour wanted to visit the school, and learning of his personal connection was a good opportunity to learn more about the history of our school," said Renee Cratty, principal at St. George. "Having him here is also a great way to connect to what we talk about in classrooms, things like governance, good citizenship or our connection to the Crown. Being able to connect that to a person makes it more real and relatable."

     "I am delighted to visit St. George school, once again," said Lieutenant Governor Molloy. "My father cared deeply about education and he was very honoured when the school was dedicated to him. I too feel strongly about the importance of education and I am pleased to thank the committed teachers and to meet the impressive students at St. George. I am sure my father would be very proud of the school."

    During his visit, Molloy spoke to students at a school assembly about his work as Lieutenant Governor, toured the school, and spent some time in classrooms to speak with students.
