onecrazycanadian: Hi,

The low health score on this cache has remained below 60 since my last contact. I see no sign of any maintenance being done to correct this and I have had no response from the owner since my last contact. Due to the lack of response I have no idea if any corrective action has been taken or if the owner has confirmed the cache is still in place. Consequently I am archiving the cache at this time. If the owner does happen to complete the maintenance required and wish to activate the cache again just let me know and I will consider unarchiving it once the issue is resolved.

The Francophone Catholic Congregation of the Sisters of Jesus and Mary arrived in Gravelbourg in 1915 to open a convent for young girls. The building was erected in 1917-1918. The Sisters provided a first-class education that emphasized music, theater, and science.

After more than 55 years of teaching, the Sisters sold the convent to the Gravelbourg School Division. It remained a school until 2016, when the town purchased the building and students were moved to a more modern school.

Today, the Friends of the Convent of Gravelbourg  are trying to save the abandoned building by finding a new purpose for it and by preserving the many heritage elements it contains.

En 1915, la Congrégation catholique francophone des Soeurs Jésus Marie arrivent à Gravelbourg avec l’intention d’ouvrir un couvent pour jeunes filles. Le bâtiment sera érigé en 1917-1918. Les Sœurs offraient une éducation de première classe qui mettait l’emphase sur la musique, le théâtre et les sciences.

Après plus de 55 ans d’éducation, les Sœurs vendent le couvent à la division scolaire de Gravelbourg. L’établissement gardera sa vocation scolaire jusqu’en 2016, où la ville fait l’acquisition de la bâtisse et les élèves sont transféré vers une école plus moderne.

Aujourd’hui, le regroupement les Amis du couvent de Gravelbourg tentent de sauver l’édifice abandonné en lui cherchant une nouvelle vocation et en essayant de préserver les nombreux vestiges patrimoniaux s’y trouvant.
