Financial Highlights


Governance HSC has a governance model in keeping with the guidelines and requirements set out by the Conference of Independent Schools of Ontario as well as the Canadian Accredited Independent Schools organization. The role of the Board of Governors is to establish and direct policies for the College and oversee HSC’s financial affairs; it is also responsible for appointing a Head of College and conducting his/ her review. It is not an operational board, leaving responsibility for day-to-day operations to the HSC administration team. The Board of Trustees is responsible for monitoring the investment of the HSC Endowment and, along with the Board of Governors, provides advice and direction on fundraising initiatives from the Advancement Office. Members of both boards are highly accomplished individuals who are widely representative of key school constituencies and are committed to the mission, vision and values of the College. 2

Message from the Head of College

Agility, Courage and Excellence

The 2019–2020 school year at HSC was a year like no other, but, in spite of its challenges, it was a very successful one. We had a record year for College-wide enrolment, with a student population of 1,255, and we celebrated an incredible amount of student success, with our graduates of 2020 gaining admission to some of the most elite programs around the world. While we spent a lot of time in the first two terms working on developing our next Strategic Plan and exploring the development of a Campus Master Plan, the world as we knew it changed on the day we left for March Break. Through the creativity, passion and commitment of the entire community, we made a transition to HSC@home, a world-class remote learning program that launched on the day that we “returned” from March Break. We spent the remainder of the school year supporting students and families through this process while developing our Continuity of Learning Plans for the re-entry of students in September 2020. The support of the community has been incredible and we are so grateful for that. Numerous families donated their 2019– 2020 tuition credit to an Emergency Bursary Fund so that their fellow HSC families who were negatively impacted by the pandemic could access temporary relief and keep their children’s educational journey at HSC intact.

We would be remiss if we didn’t acknowledge the hard work of HSC parents, guardians and students and their adaptability and resilience in the face of change. Our gratitude must also go to all the faculty, staff and administration, who worked tirelessly to deliver a learning experience that maximizes the strengths of HSC: the bond of our community, capable and motivated students, supportive parents, excellence in teaching, a wealth of technological resources, and, above all, a commitment to safety and student wellbeing. To our many donors and volunteers, your unfaltering commitment to support HSC keeps our community strong and together. We are grateful for your continued contributions and we look forward to seeing all that we can achieve in the coming years. While we don’t know what the future holds, we can take comfort and gain confidence from a look to our past. This College has survived fires, two World Wars and, yes, even the pandemic of 1918–1919, so we know that we will get through this together as a community. We are excited to share with you some of the highlights from the 2019–2020 school year and look back on milestones that sparked joy and inspired students to follow their passions and live with purpose.

A Vibrant and Committed Community The 2019–2020 school year was one for the ages and proved to be a testament to the support and resilience of the entire HSC community. In March, the College demonstrated its fortitude, agility and unwavering commitment to students with a remarkable pivot to remote learning while continuing to deliver a superior education and meaningful learning experience in the face of a global pandemic. Though distanced physically, and challenged by the weight of a total economic shutdown, our community came together to ensure no child’s HSC journey would be derailed as a result of financial constraints caused by the pandemic. Working closely with the Finance Office, the Board of Governors reviewed all operating expenditures with a commitment to providing all families with a tuition credit that was representative of the difference in costs between an in-person and a remote learning experience. To further reduce financial strain, the Board moved swiftly to waive Expansion Fees for the 2020–2021 school year and created an Emergency Bursary Fund for those families that found themselves in need of short-term financial support. I am delighted to share that we had a number of families donate their tuition credits back to the College in support of these efforts. We are very pleased to know that many


Message from the Chair, Board of Governors

families found these actions helpful, and we are grateful for the entire community’s continued support of the College’s initiatives. Despite additional costs and expenses related to the development and execution of HSC’s Continuity of Learning Plans, the Board met its commitment to maintain fees at the level previously communicated for the 2020–2021 academic year. To say that the Board is immensely proud of all that HSC has achieved in the past year would be an understatement. Our sincere gratitude goes out to all parents, guardians, alumni, volunteers, donors and, of course, our students, for your continued support. And to our staff, faculty, administration and leadership teams—we can’t thank you enough for your professionalism, commitment and vision in developing and implementing plans that not only maintain student safety and wellbeing but are responsive to the unpredictability of a pandemic and provide the depth of learning for which HSC is renowned. This has been nothing short of a herculean task, and one that the Board, and our entire community, is extremely grateful for. Thank you all!

“To say that the Board is immensely proud of all that HSC has achieved in the past year would be an understatement. Our sincere gratitude goes out to all parents, guardians, alumni, volunteers, donors and, of course, our students, for your continued support.”

As I come to the end of my term as Chair of the Board of Governors and reflect back on the past 10-plus years as a parent, as a member and, subsequently, Chair of the Board of Trustees, member of the Board of Governors, and coach of the Girls’ Varsity Hockey Team, I am reminded of when Ruth and I were moving back to Canada in 2009. We were in search of a school for our four children. We had experience with independent schools in the United States and Bermuda, and HSC checked all of the boxes (and more) that one looks for in an enriched, independent school environment. But what really differentiated HSC from its peers, and the reason we ultimately chose HSC for our children, was the incredible sense of community we witnessed and experienced during the application process. I have been reminded of that community—its thoughtfulness, generosity, resilience, strength, respect and support—on so many occasions over the past decade. In times of achievement, celebration and success, and in times of challenge, hardship and tragedy, our community has rallied together and has proven its ability to prevail. This is perhaps no more evident than this year, 2020. I am honoured and humbled to have served alongside such a talented, committed and thoughtful group of Board volunteers, and I am so grateful that the decision Ruth and I made back in 2009 allowed us to become part of such an incredible, passionate and spirited community. I wish you all the very best in health, happiness and success in this academic year and far beyond.

Each student who passes through the doors of HSC after attending the College for more than a year is considered an alumnus and is automatically a member of the HSC Alumni Association. This longstanding network, which hosts a series of annual events and offers mentorship opportunities, is a great way to stay connected to the HSC community.

HSC Connect

Alumni Association

In 2019–2020, our mentorship program was rebranded as HSC Connect and now features a powerful new online platform that facilitates one-on-one career connections between HSC students and alumni. In pre-arranged telephone calls, mentors share their expertise through career conversations, résumé critiques or mock interviews with mentees who may be fellow alumni or students.

In-person mentorship activities also continue to foster those lifelong connections. •

In October, HSC Connect held a Young Alumni Reunion at Spin Ping Pong, a social club in the heart of downtown Toronto. With 12 Olympic-style ping pong tables as a backdrop and conversation starter, alumni in the city networked, expounded on their post-graduate careers and reminisced about their connections to HSC.

Alumni also returned to campus this year to engage current students. •

Interior designer Lori Morris ’82, owner of internationally renowned Lori Morris Designs headquartered in Toronto, spoke with the Grade 8 classes. She described what can happen when you utilize your degree in ways you couldn’t have imagined and encouraged them to open up their minds to the possibilities. She was joined by PJ Hull ’83, Director of Market Development for House of LMD, and together they led hands-on workshops where students designed their own bedrooms and reimagined the HSC school uniform.

Mackenzie Hamilton ’14, professional slalom snowboarder, spoke to Middle School students on adapting to the changes life brings you with an open mind and enthusiasm. Her key message: One path will lead to another and a positive attitude will always support your best interests.

Alumni Hockey Tournament This year’s event had an excellent turnout. With 75 participants, including alumni from 1963 to current students in Grades 11 and 12, we were able to field six teams. The day started with alumni, faculty and current parents enjoying a light breakfast before hitting the ice for five hours of fun and friendly hockey! After reaching the finals for the last four years, the Seasoned Vets were finally victorious and took home the Peter Annable Cup.

NYC Reunion Throughout the year we welcome alumni back for various College-wide events. But HSC alumni have spread their wings worldwide and sometimes returning to Hamilton simply isn’t feasible. For these alumni, regional reunions offer a fun and engaging way to stay connected with different generations within the HSC community. One such reunion took place in February 2020, in New York City, when alumni from 1978 to 2012 gathered at the Harvard Club. Hosted by Meagan Hill ’07, the event also welcomed former faculty members Rob Reiner and Peter Annable. 2019–2020 ANNUAL REPORT

The HSC Parents’ Guild works collaboratively with all four schools to support our vibrant College community. Each parent or guardian of a student attending HSC automatically becomes part of the Parents’ Guild, but the level of involvement is up to the individual. Entirely volunteer-run, the Parents’ Guild hosts fundraising events such as Winterfest and Monster Mash, and oversees the Student-to-Student Uniform Program, including the sales of gently used uniforms throughout the year. The Parents’ Guild allocates the funds raised through these and other initiatives to enhance the HSC learning environment. The breakdown of disbursements is below.

As one of the first big HSC community events of the school year, Winterfest is always eagerly anticipated. Held in late November, the 2019 instalment was no exception as more than 700 attendees found delight in a wide variety of activities and entertainment. The full-day event showcased pictures with Santa and visits from some of our favourite holiday movie characters, including Elf, Anna and Elsa from Frozen, Gingy from Shrek, Scrooge, and the Grinch, who most definitely did not try to steal Christmas! From the Escape Rooms to arts and crafts and from a sing-along to a gym full of activities, there were plenty of opportunities for merrymaking. The Penny Sale and the Alumni Café also drew great crowds who wanted to win big or grab a homemade treat. And we can’t forget the Middle School Gingerbread House Challenge—what a mess of fun! So thank you to the volunteers and our Parents’ Guild members who helped fill close to 200 time slots. Their enthusiasm and dedication helped Winterfest to raise over $9,500.

Engagement at HSC HSC was not immune when the global COVID-19 pandemic began wreaking havoc in Canada. The novel coronavirus was a serious threat to everyone’s health, safety and wellbeing with significant implications for our core mission to develop joyful and engaged students who live life with purpose. After all, what would happen when students who love going to school could no longer attend class, connect face-to-face with their teachers and peers, or engage in co-curricular experiences that expand their horizons beyond the classroom? We are profoundly grateful for how the entire HSC family collectively found timely, engaging and meaningful answers to those questions. Everyone— faculty and staff, students, their families, volunteers and donors—were all generous with their talents and contributions. As a result, our students didn’t just survive the final term of the 2019–2020 school year, they found innovative ways to thrive. 14

Engagement at HSC

HSC@home Delivers Excellence in Learning During an Uncertain Time How HSC Came Together to Learn While Apart When the Ontario government abruptly closed schools province-wide on March 17, 2020, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the public health and safety measure was as disruptive as it was necessary. But just 13 days later, HSC students were able to continue their education uninterrupted when classes resumed as originally scheduled following March Break. We are thankful to our faculty and staff who redoubled their preparatory efforts for the third term. By March 30, they had designed and delivered a new learning plan, HSC@home, utilizing a range of remote learning strategies to provide an authentic, meaningful and engaging curriculum-based education for our students. HSC@home also enables personal interactions with teachers and friends, facilitates access to various support services, and provides a forum for participation in some co-curricular activities. 16

Even before the pandemic, HSC had a robust virtual presence, including myHSC and a selection of digital courses. Nevertheless, there was no template for such a fast and efficient pivot from a predominately campus-based learning environment to a wholly online model. HSC’s commitment to fostering leadership and academic excellence is at the core of this achievement. Faculty and staff are challenged and encouraged to pursue ongoing growth and professional development (PD), with many at different stages of attaining post-graduate degrees and/or specialist certifications in a variety of fields. Among these lifelong learners, a critical core have acquired world-class pedagogical knowledge and leading-edge technological competencies. Their expertise helped fast-track HSC@home with curriculum designs based on current best practices and an informed selection of educational apps.


Engagement at HSC

The faculty also participated in remote PD, readying colleagues at all four schools to deliver an enhanced online experience to their students. The PD curriculum—in development since mid-2019 and fortuitously finalized just weeks before it was unexpectedly needed—is based on what is known as a “community of inquiry model.” By encouraging collaboration across time and place and emphasizing what students do with their newly acquired concepts and skills, this model is far more engaging and attuned to students’ needs than earlier e-learning attempts that simply videoed and migrated classroom lessons online. While pleased with the initial rollout of HSC@home, we anticipated further iterations and included measures to welcome and implement change. Ongoing surveys sought feedback from parents and students, who could also offer their suggestions during regular school-time communications. Principals likewise received input from teachers. This discourse helped adjust and refine the presentation of the knowledge content. One notable change, however, was more practical than pedagogical when we eliminated staggered mid-day breaks in favour of a common lunch hour. The adjustment meant families with children attending different HSC schools could enjoy a communal meal. We also introduced Wellness Wednesdays for all members of the HSC community to dedicate time to their physical, social, emotional and cognitive wellbeing. Normal, pre-pandemic social interactions had been disrupted so there was an intentional focus on maintaining school life and relationship building. Group events such as Chapel and student clubs moved to an online format as did other co-curricular activities where feasible.

Engagement at HSC

There were expected differences in how HSC@home was deployed at each of the four schools. Teachers used a variety of age- and stage-appropriate online tools, texts, recorded videos and other applications to guide and inspire their students. This usage varied at the schools in terms of synchronous vs. asynchronous lessons, class length, overall screen time and the degree of parental involvement required.

Montessori@home A touchstone of the Montessori School is the prepared environment, a carefully designed space where everything that students see, touch and do is optimized for individual learning. With the campus closed, the challenge became replicating key Montessori educational concepts and tools in the home. The Montessori emphasis on adaptability and resilience, as well as established partnerships among faculty and parents, meant the children could carry on acquiring knowledge in their own way at their own pace. Self-directed learning was sustained via a suite of online tools, a consistent routine, one-on-one teaching sessions, and group meetings such as story readings and physical education. Demonstrating another Montessori hallmark, learning through experimentation rather than instruction, faculty relied on their established partnerships with parents— and the ingenious use of some common household materials. When it comes to laying the groundwork for later abstract thinking, stacking Cheerios and sorting Smarties work just fine. 18

Junior@home Finding balance in everyday life is a key aspect of Junior School that suddenly took on even more importance. The range of ages, 18 months to nine years, necessitated a variety of learning options that took into account how much online time is appropriate and how much assistance the students need at home and from teachers. The academic strategy featured multiple check-ins, smaller groups for teacher-led opportunities, and various systems and strategies for students’ self-paced activities. Older students in particular had opportunities to explore a passion project. Staff from the Learning Commons and the Living Room were also available to support student engagement. Meeting students’ varied needs entailed significant time and energy on the part of teachers and parents, many of whom were also balancing work and other obligations. Yet inspired by a common goal, they ensured the students remained engaged and never stopped learning.


Engagement at HSC

Even so, the schools had even more in common as they innovated to make an abnormal situation seem as normal as possible. Consistent themes emerged: the professionalism of staff and faculty; the tirelessness of families; and the diligence of students in following their passions and engaging in deep learning experiences. With a shared sense of community, HSC remains four schools, one College.

Senior@home Middle@home In Middle School, students are becoming more autonomous and discovering who they are and what they love. As experienced digital citizens, they too embraced the online experience with relative independence. Some students even coached their teachers on how to make the best use of their devices. Still, reactions varied to the new remote learning environment and some students struggled with a newfound sense of isolation. In addition to available counselling, Wellbeing Wednesdays offered an antidote. Focussing on community connections, time was set aside for Chapel, clubs and athletics, and offline options. Enterprising students were inspired by their Principal’s daily video updates and began posting videos of their own featuring weather reports and other local highlights that became must-see viewing. The Middle@home model was highly successful in achieving goals around its three main strategic pillars: academic excellence, wellbeing and community.

For the tech-savvy students of the Senior School, there were few concerns about their ability to use their devices unassisted and, where appropriate, unsupervised. Some pupils in the lower grades even said they welcomed the opportunity to work more independently, pursue chosen topics indepth, and develop new life skills. Then there were the Grade 12 students. A sense of community has always been a vital part of life at HSC and this group was disappointed to be off campus during their final term. One of their solutions was to initiate a series of virtual College-wide challenges. These included, for instance, plank-holding competitions, with the House whose members tallied the most minutes overall declared the winner. Burpee fitness contests followed a similar format. These friendly rivalries played a key role in boosting House, School and College spirit and solidarity—and let graduating students enjoy some last experiences as part of the HSC community. 2019–2020 ANNUAL REPORT

Engagement at HSC

Learning Nurtures Joy and Discovery in HSC’s Youngest Minds In the early 1900s, Italian physician Maria Montessori pioneered theories of early childhood education that are still used in schools around the world. Based on her careful observations of children, she developed a philosophy that respects the needs, gifts, talents and unique personality of each child. By attending to their academic, social and emotional needs, she believed children develop a love of learning, build independence, and learn to respect themselves and others. The Montessori educational approach is characterized by self-directed activities that take place in an ordered and nurturing environment where children can safely and joyfully learn to take on new challenges. Activities are very hands-on; at each developmental stage, students manipulate Montessori tools that provide concrete examples of increasingly abstract concepts. Specially trained Montessori teachers guide their students through a personalized curriculum. Class sizes are small and include children of different ages. Older students serve as role models and peer mentors as everyone learns to be productive and co-operative members of a community.

Exploring the World through Personal Histories Amid growing diversity in the HSC community and beyond, fostering empathy, kindness and tolerance is more important than ever. Developing global citizens begins in the Junior School as students learn about the world and their place in it. Each grade studies a different continent all year. In Grade 2, where the focus is on South America, students also learn about family and are encouraged to start asking questions like “Who am I?” and “Where do I come from?” Guided by their passions, they learn about recent or distant ancestors and, after interviewing family members, present a doll to their classmates that represents what they’ve learned. Four months of project-based learning culminate in Heritage Day, when parents visit their child’s classroom. The 2020 version fortunately took place just before the pandemic closed the campus. Using props emblematic of their heritage and culture, the parents set up stations that take students on a trip around the world. Students can move freely between the two Grade 2 classrooms to learn even more about their peers. 20

Engagement at HSC

Experiencing the Mutual Benefits of Community Service HSC puts a high priority on giving back, a value students College-wide embrace through their support of local, national and international not-for-profit organizations. Many initiatives, such as the Thanksgiving food drive, have become successful annual events. But after a faculty member received advanced training in service learning, the 2019–2020 school year saw Middle School students take their activities to the next level. Classes were cancelled for a half day each month to dedicate time to the hows and whys of community service (the time was made up later). Guided by their home form teachers, students decided on and planned a project and—with the exception of a few derailed by the pandemic—followed through on its execution. One group, for instance, made repeat visits to a long-term care facility in Ancaster where they spent meaningful time with the residents. Another group helped pack boxes at a local food bank. Through this sort of active participation, the students learned first-hand about the needs of others and saw the impact they could have.

Expanding Diverse and Inclusive Learning It took just a few short months for the Black Students’ Association (BSA) to show what teenagers can do when they raise their voices together. HSC’s first cultural affinity group originated with several Black students who, inspired in part by Black History Month, began meeting informally over lunch. As a small minority in HSC, they were looking to build bonds as a community. The global resurgence of protest against antiBlack racism throughout the spring reinforced their views that acting collectively is important, and the BSA was formed. Open to all HSC students interested in promoting diversity and inclusion, the BSA has multiple objectives, including education, comradeship, and providing a safe space to discuss difficult topics. BSA members have already spoken with faculty about teaching Black history throughout the school year, and with HSC’s librarians about further expanding the library’s collection of diversity-themed materials. That was just for starters: in collaboration with another nascent group, HSC News, the BSA made a stunning 20-minute video articulating teens’ stance against racial injustice. 2019–2020 ANNUAL REPORT

Emergency Bursary Fund “I’m overwhelmed with gratitude this morning. The growing number of HSC families who have supported their fellow HSC families by donating their tuition credit to our Emergency Bursary Fund is amazing. It is not just the donation; it is the rationale.” – Marc Ayotte, Head of College The HSC Board created the Emergency Bursary Fund in response to the impact that the global pandemic is having on the HSC community. The reality is that the COVID-19 crisis is not affecting everyone equally and, as a result, some of our families are facing unexpected economic challenges. The HSC community has recognized the importance of remaining united at this time and has been thoughtful and generous in response. Thank you to our families for suggesting the option of donating their tuition credit to support those who need some extra help at this time.

College Initiatives

The David Tutty Joy and Innovation Fund The David Tutty Joy and Innovation Fund was established in 2015 to honour and celebrate scientist David Tutty, a dedicated father and HSC community member whose zest for life and love of learning inspired all who met him. The fund invites students, faculty and staff to submit bold, creative proposals that will make a mark on HSC and the world beyond. The intent is to inspire innovation and to demonstrate how dreams can become reality. The fund committee meets each year to review the applications and ensure submissions are aligned with HSC’s principles of “learning with joy and living with purpose.” Opening the door to inventiveness Thanks to the generosity of our donors, six programs received a total $50,550 in funding in 2019–2020.

The HSC Community

Speaks Out

Educators

We have so much to be grateful for “We sincerely appreciate the efforts of the whole HSC team, who have made a positive learning experience for all of their students. We especially appreciate the above and beyond effort to create a memorable event for those graduating, despite the nearly impossible circumstances.”

Students

“If you look for the light, you can often find it. But if you look for the dark, that is all you will ever see. I found the light in the lifelong friends and memories I made at HSC.” “When the PG asks for help, I am so grateful that the HSC community always responds—and in a big way! We can rely on our students and their parents, staff and alumni to be there. With their help, we can plan memorable events like Winterfest for our HSC families to enjoy.”

“Thank you to the entire HSC faculty. There was no way to prepare for this situation and you have handled it incredibly well. We really appreciate the level of communication.” “We are truly grateful to have found HSC. As a new family from the U.S., I knew I needed to get involved. The PG at HSC gave me the opportunity to get to know my children’s teachers, become more involved in the school community, and make wonderful friendships.” “I am grateful for HSC’s commitment to interactive learning and providing students with real-world experiences outside of the classroom to demonstrate our skills. Some of my fondest memories as a student include class trips, e-week activities and extra-curricular conferences and contests.”

Financial Highlights

Fiscal Focus Ensures Strength in Numbers The 2019–2020 school year was truly a year like no other. We started the school year with incredibly strong enrolment and plans to finalize our next multi-year Strategic Plan and to begin moving forward on our long-term plans through a new Campus Master Planning process—all ultimately ensuring the success of our students today, tomorrow and for generations to come. These plans were abruptly paused on March 13, 2020 with the lockdown of the Province of Ontario and the closure of schools due to the global pandemic.

As a community we came together and quickly transitioned to HSC@home on March 30, 2020. This shift in how we delivered our academic programming ensured the continued success of our students even in the face of the unknown. We recognized that strong fiscal management and attention to the ever-changing economic realities facing the College as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic needed to be addressed in the swiftest of manners. In recognition of our changing operational landscape, we committed to our community to provide tuition credits representative of the costs associated with our inability to access our campus or to provide the auxiliary services traditionally available. In addition to the tuition credits, the following fiscal measures were undertaken to weather the economic uncertainties we faced, safeguarding our students as well as the longterm sustainability of the College:

net assets to a restricted fund as monitored by the HSC Board of Governors to provide emergency financial aid and endeavour to ensure that a student’s educational journey would not be impacted or disrupted due to undue financial implications of COVID-19. Provided customized and revised payment plans to further support families financially impacted by the pandemic and further prevent disruption of a student’s time at HSC. Allocated further operating net assets to a secondary restricted fund to provide for substantial College-wide investments and enhancements to ensure the safe return of our students to campus. Preserved our endowment fund by foregoing our annual endowment draw of 2019–2020 scholarships and bursaries through our operations as opposed to endowment capital. Committed to waiving the annual expansion fee for the 2020–2021 school year In keeping our focus on strong fiscal management, developed 2020–2021 pandemic budget plans that ensure no changes to the 2020–2021 tuition fees, as communicated by our Board of Governors.

HSC Annual Report 2019–2020

Respect. Integrity. Community. Individuality. Determination. Our core mission is to develop joyful and engaged students who live life with purpose. The best learning happens when students are happy to come to school, have opportunities to follow their passions, and participate in deep learning experiences that challenge them. Joyful, engaged students develop strong relationships with their peers and with the caring adults who spark and support their learning both inside the classroom and beyond. Their journey at HSC prepares students to live with purpose— to understand their world, inspire, lead, act, and make a difference in their own unique ways.
