The Advancement Office Welcomes a New Member

The Advancement Office is pleased to share that Karen Turfel will be re-joining our team as Donor Services Officer.

After VC she worked in Advancement and Development at Mulgrave and then Notre Dame Secondary.

Our Next Century hits 33 Million!

We give thanks to our community of giving, inspired by members of our Campaign Cabinet under the leadership of campaign co-chairs Chris and Rebecca Sherry, and Mark Brown, Chair of the Advancement Committee.

Through the support of many families, alumni and friends, we raised $6.5 Million in 2018/19 bringing our total for Our Next Century to $33 Million.

We remain confident that the next years will continue to be successful and that we finish strong. The cost of the two buildings is $43 Million and with our community's ongoing support and unified efforts, we hope to raise as close to this figure as possible not only to ensure completion of the building but also to fortify the school's financial well-being and sustainability for years to come.

From the Director of Advancement - Lighting Up 27!

Manrell Hall opened on the 4th of September on time and under budget. I stood by the doors where I felt the excitement and watched the expression on the boys and their parents' faces. Many were amazed with the new learning spaces and in awe that they could actually be in it after 18 months of construction. Nicholas, a grade 8 student, visited me in my new office and said, "Mrs. Cogswell, when you told me at Mayfair that Manrell Hall would be finished by September, I didn't believe you. You were right!"
