Important Rezoning information from the Headmaster and the Boards
To All Members of the St. George’s School Community:
We are pleased to update you on recent decisions made by the School and Foundation Boards that will allow us to proceed with a bold and incredibly exciting future for St. George’s School.
As you know, as a result of the Strategic Plan approved by the Board in 2011, St. George’s has committed itself to becoming Canada’s World School for Boys—a world leader in the education of boys. When educators from around the globe wish to identify a school that really understands boys and is doing a superb job of meeting their learning needs, we expect St. George’s to be at the top of the list. We have been working hard in recent years to renew our instructional practices and educational programs, as well as our academic facilities on both campuses, as we advance our vision of boy-centred, 21st century teaching and learning. Some of our most recent initiatives include the introduction of three new cohorts at the Grade10 level and a complete renovation of the Junior School’s fourth floor to create flexible and dynamic learning spaces for our Grade 5 and 6 students.
We also have developed comprehensive long-term facilities plans for both campuses, in conjunction with initiating the rezoning process for the Senior School. The ONE Campaign was launched two years ago with the goal of raising $40 million to support the construction of two new academic buildings on the Senior School campus and the ongoing renovation of the Junior School. To date, we have received commitments in excess of $35 million, and we are working hard to exceed our $40 million goal by the end of June 2017.
At their most recent meetings in late December, the School and Foundation Boards reviewed and approved several interrelated motions regarding the Campus Master Plan (CMP) and the rezoning of the Senior School Campus. A summary of each motion and its implications follows.Read more
