Elect Alene Mutala

Your Edmonton Catholic School Trustee Candidate in Ward 75 this October 16, 2017
“Do Small Things with Great Love” – St. Therese of Lisieux
Alene Mutala, a recently retired teacher who was involved in the Education Field for 27 years as Teacher, School Counselor, Religious Education Consultant, and Health and Wellness Coordinator is running to become the Edmonton Catholic school board trustee for Ward 75. Alene is currently involved in education and has done some presentations for Pearson Canada on the New Religion Program to teachers.
 
If elected in the October 16, 2017 municipal election, Alene Mutala is committed to and will work towards:
  • advocating for Catholic Education for all students
  • encouraging parental choice for Catholic Education
  • building a cohesive, unified board with one voice for Catholic Education
  • supporting academic success for all students
  • fostering an inclusive education system
  • establishing a strong rapport with staff and parents
  • working hard to support staff, parents and students
  • listening to concerns of all stakeholders
In February, Alene was approached by colleagues who asked if she would consider running for Edmonton Catholic School Trustee. She spent some time praying and discerning before she made her decision. After being involved with Education for 27 years, Catholic Education was near and dear to her heart. In her roles over the years, she worked very hard to evangelize staff, students and parents by planning and providing faith days, professional development and retreats.
Alene found it very disturbing that trustees on Edmonton Catholic School Board could not work together cohesively to promote Catholic Education for the success of all students. The dissension and conflict between some board members was giving the public a negative impression of Edmonton Catholic School Board and the Catholic Community. This dissension has caused people to question the need for two school systems. In Alberta, Catholics have the right to a publicly funded Catholic education system and we must not become complacent and take it for granted. We must work together to keep Catholic Education.
After meeting and talking with former trustees, clergy and friends, Alene decided that because of her background and education and dedication to Catholic Education, she has good qualifications to run as a candidate for Edmonton Catholic School Trustee. Alene Mutala knows the importance of governance and school policies and will work at building a cohesive unified board with one voice speaking for Catholic Education and the mission and teachings of the Catholic Church.
