Greater St. Albert Catholic School’s 150th Anniversary goal of raising $200,000 to rebuild schools affected by Super Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines is about $2100 closer to reality after more than 200 of the Division’s students participated in the Pope Francis Fun Run at Georges H. Primeau School Friday afternoon.

The new school will be an elementary school with six classrooms to house 500 students in the Model Community in Tacloban.
