Keys to History

This is the school report of a young girl named Hermine Fauteux. She was a boarder in 1865 at a school in St-Laurent run by the Congregation of Sainte-Croix. The Congregation was founded in France in 1837 as a teaching order and invited by Bishop Bourget to come to Montreal in 1847.

This report shows that Fauteux's health was delicate and that she received a "B" in subjects such as French and English. "Manual work" probably refers to instruction in general housekeeping such as cooking, cleaning and washing. The report reveals how limited the curriculum was for a young girl in a religious school in the mid-19th century.
