“If your heart is broken, make art with the pieces.” —Shane Koyczan, Canadian spoken word artist

Our state of normalcy has been affected for more than a year now and I continue to be in awe of the level of resilience I’ve witnessed in our community. We have absolutely made art with our broken pieces. In a community like Royal St. George’s College, being together, eating together, laughing and crying together, are at the heart of what keeps us connected. Like me, you may have felt a sense of loss of community—perhaps in a way you’ve never experience before. What we witnessed, however, were our teachers, our parents and our alumni all moving beyond what they knew as normal to new, creative, enlightened ways of providing service to our students and our community. This year’s fundraising focused on taking care of our students and our families by funding mental health initiatives, growing and distributing scholarships and bursaries, upgrading facilities and equipment to keep our students and our teachers healthy, and upgrading technology as remote learning dictated. Thank you for helping ensure all of these necessary expenses were funded by your continued generosity to the College. Our goal for 100 per cent community participation in fundraising continued and once again the College’s leaders achieved this goal, including our Faculty & Staff, RSGC Board of Governors, St. George’s College Foundation Board of Trustees, and the RSGC Alumni Association Executive. Thank you! As the College continues to plan for the future, including a new capital build and growing our endowment fund to help secure the College’s future, I look forward to connecting with you to get your feedback and support so we can ensure that the College continues to produce students who become the best versions of themselves. Thank you for being a good friend to the College and continuing to make RSGC a priority in your giving.
