Extraordinary Fund

2020 has been an extraordinary year for everyone, and Trinity College School is no exception. When students and staff left campus for March break, no one could imagine that they wouldn’t return in person for six months. The last time the School closed its campus to students was following the fire of 1928, which almost leveled the campus. At that trying time, alumni and parents came together to fund new school buildings which are still home to this day.

We are confident the TCS community will once again rally to support the School, this time, helping ensure the health and well-being of students and staff.

Extraordinary Fund

The School has made a number of extraordinary investments in additional personnel, renovations and equipment to enhance campus health and safety for students and staff. In total, it is anticipated that more than $750,000 will be invested in the following areas:

  • additional personnel including extra nursing coverage in the health centre, more program and residential assistants to enhance student supervision, additional staff to reduce congestion in Osler Hall and added cleaning staff;
  • enhanced ventilation systems particularly in the older parts of the School primarily state-of-the-art portable air purification units;
  • marquis tent rentals to create six outdoor meeting spaces for classes, house meetings and co-curricular activities;
  • temporary classrooms in the upper and lower gyms and squash courts;
  • enhanced teaching capabilities including new in-classroom cameras and microphones, live streaming cameras and expanded internet;
  • new sanitizing cleaning units, barrier protection and hand washing stations; and
  • emerging priorities as the school year unfolds.

The School is counting on the support of alumni and parents to fund these critical enhancements via donations to the Extraordinary Fund. The TCS Board of Governors has reached 100% participation and asks you to join them in considering a special gift this year; this is our most urgent fundraising priority.
