Madeleine Van Leer is a name you may not know well, but she stands tall in the history of Glenaeon. As a student, Madeleine designed the glass mosaic of the tree, which can be found at the western end of the Alice Crowther building, and last week she came along to visit the school and her mosaic.

Glenaeon's eventual school logo was inspired by Madeleine's mosaic, which she designed for her final year art major work in 1972. Madeleine in turn was inspired by the symbol of the tree throughout her Main Lessons at Glenaeon, and of course as the backdrop to the school campus.
