Biographical history

Alice (Perrett) Perrault (1896-1990) was born in Hopedale, Labrador, to Rev. Walter and Helen (Ridgway) Perrett. The daughter of a Moravian missionary, Alice Perrett was trained as a teacher in England and taught in Makkovik before her marriage to Thorwald Perrault. In 1942 Alice moved to Refugee Cove (later Happy Valley) with her family to work on construction of the Goose Bay Air Force Base. In 1943 Alice Perrault started the first school in Happy Valley in the kitchen of her home and was instrumental in securing more permanent facilities for the school in 1946. She was awarded the Order of Canada on June 25, 1984, for a lifetime of service to her community.
