Guild welcomes parents to breakfast meeting

The TCS Parents’ Guild hosted its first get-together of the school year on Friday, September 13th, inviting parents to enjoy breakfast in Osler Hall while learning more about the guild’s role in supporting the well-being of students.

Prior to breakfast, a short social allowed the large gathering of parents to network and mingle. Then everyone was welcomed by TCS Parents’ Guild President Nancy Sanderson P’20 ’22 and Headmaster Stuart Grainger. The breakfast was an opportunity to explain the guild’s mission of enhancing the “spiritual, social and physical aspects of student life” at TCS. One means of doing this is through fundraising, through events like Bear Fair, sales of Birthday Hug packages and exam survival kits, poinsettia orders, a giant Valentine’s Celebration and more.

These initiatives allow the guild to fund “wish list” items to enhance classrooms, co-curricular programs and daily life at the School (from house outings to the new smoothie machine!), as well as continuing the guild’s support of the chapel and ongoing funding of the guild bursary.

These programs are made possible by volunteers, and parents are invited to explore the guild’s list of volunteer opportunities, and join the 117-year-old tradition of the TCS Parents’ Guild!

Following the meeting, parents were able to take part in a fascinating historical tour led by TCS Chaplain, Canon Don Aitchison, from Osler Hall to the Memorial Chapel.
