Message from the Chair

Ruth Woods Chair

M

y first year as Chair of this great school has flown by in a whirlwind of activity and change. You have all seen the beautiful new campus as it emerges from our much loved tarmac. This transformation is a very visible sign of the vibrancy of our Board and Senior Leadership Team. In a world where change is constant, RSGC is pushing boundaries and taking boys’ education to the next level. In July 2011, we welcomed Stephen Beatty ’86 as our new Headmaster – the first alumnus in the history of the College to lead the school. Steve’s deep attachment to RSGC and his continuous involvement through the

Alumni Association and Board allowed us to undertake projects in his first year that are unheard of in good governance circles. The Board was unwavering in its resolve to push the vision forward because, in addition to Steve’s exceptional leadership, we continue to place implicit trust in Paul O’Leary, Assistant Headmaster, and the other members of the Senior Leadership Team. I am particularly proud of what our Board has accomplished over the last 12 months. After the defining moment when we came together to approve the campus redevelopment project, the Board and Senior Management have worked tirelessly to deliver on this vision. Under the skilled watch of Facilities Committee Chair Michael Barker, Past Chair Tye Farrow and CFO Andrew Whiteley, the project has been a huge success. It is clear that the new academic and recreational space allows our staff to enhance the curriculum and enrich the lives and learning of our boys. Our Honouring the Past | Building Our Future Campaign is the first major fundraising campaign the College has ever undertaken. Advancement Committee Co-Chairs Guy Burry ’77 and Wanda Ho have exceeded expectations in providing leadership and support to all the campaign staff and volunteers. As a result, we are delighted by the participation and generosity of our community stakeholders – including 100% support from faculty and staff. With the redevelopment and Campaign in good shape, the Board is turning its attention to strategic planning in 2012-2013. Shelly Haber, the Strategic Planning Committee Chair,

4 Royal St. George’s College 2011-12 Annual Report

will be working closely with Steve and other stakeholders to develop a five-year visionary strategic plan. In a year when all eyes are on the project, it is easy to overlook the great work done by other Board members and committees. In addition to the invaluable advice and support I received from Vice-Chair Paul Clark ’85, I would like to acknowledge the superb work done by Finance Committee Chair Cathy Bateman; Governance Chair Tony Caldwell, who took on the thankless task of reviewing our by-laws; and Bruce MacLaren, who volunteered to be the second set of eyes on our risk management policies. As I end my first year as Chair of RSGC, I am filled with mixed emotions. I was a parent at the school for the last ten years and watched my son, Derek, learn, grow and excel in an environment that supported and celebrated him through the ups and downs of growing up. He is the man he is today because he had the opportunity to compete hard at sports, sing in the choir, learn from his friends and connect personally with teachers and staff. As Tom and I watched him graduate in June – as a lifer – we couldn’t have been more proud. I am sad that our journey through the school together is over, but thrilled that he is forever a Georgian and I am still involved in this wonderful place that we both call home.

Stephen Beatty Headmaster

Dear Fellow Georgians,

T

he 2011/12 school year was certainly the year of construction at the College. The boys returned to school in September to find the whole of their beloved “tarmac” had been replaced by an enormous pit. Limited outdoor space coincided with healthy enrolment numbers so we had a lot of boys with very little space to run off their energy. In true Georgian fashion, the boys adapted to, and even embraced, their surroundings. RSGC traditions such as wall-ball games and the ball

hockey league evolved and thrived, undeterred by the physical limitations of the campus. Such is the stuff of our Georgians. The metaphor of construction and building was woven through the fabric of the College in 2011-12. The so-called Mini-Dig project continued over the course of the year with our new facilities and outdoor space taking shape. Not since the completion of Founders’ Hall in 1972, housing our gymnasium, library and Senior School classrooms, has the College been so transformed by a visionary building project. The next generations of Georgians will enjoy a campus that truly reflects our great school. After the devastating fire of 2010, our Chapel was also returned to full use in September 2011. Weekly Evensong services bringing together all of our students from Grades 3 to 12 is an important RSGC tradition. Following the restoration, the Chapel is truly magnificent; I encourage all Georgians to make sure they see our crown jewel for themselves. The restoration project received an Honourable Mention in the Architectural Conservancy of Ontario Awards of Excellence and was opened to the public as part of Doors Open Toronto. Building for the future requires the financial support of all members of our community. Our Honouring our Past | Building our Future Campaign is the largest capital Campaign in the history of the College. I’ve had the opportunity to speak with a number of current families, alumni and alumni families about the impact the College has on young men and their desire to give back to the school at this time. Of particular note is the participation of 100% of our faculty

and staff in the campaign – a remarkable statement of Georgian values. As we approach the 50th Anniversary of the founding of the College, a milestone that we will celebrate in September 2014 and throughout the 2014-15 school year, RSGC continues to thrive and to build for the future. On a personal note, I am so grateful for the welcome I received from the community during my first year as Headmaster. Thirty-five years after I entered the school as a student, I had the pleasure of sitting down behind Jack Wright’s desk as Headmaster. The same values that have shaped my own life continue to ring true at RSGC. It has been quite remarkable for me to come home again. Here’s to the future of our College!

Message from the President of the Georgian Parents’ Guild

Kimberly Cudney President

O

n behalf of the entire Georgian Parents’ Guild, I am pleased to report on the achievements over the 2011-2012 school year by a team of well over 150 volunteers who have committed their time, energy and talents to support the school all year long. We are in a healthy position to meet our commitment to the Capital Campaign for the next fiscal year. We have contributed $100,000 towards our campaign commitment of $250,000 and are again in a position to contribute towards our gift. Congratulations again to all of

the Guild Executives who have worked tirelessly raising funds for our school. One important initiative this year was the comprehensive review of our Constitution and by-laws, our Guild Portfolios and our Code of Conduct. We hosted a working meeting offsite with a majority of the Guild Executive present. It also afforded us the opportunity to review each portfolio and examine how we operate within the frameworks of both the Guild and the College. Another major initiative was the rebuilding of our website. Gail Graham led the work with Laurie Alpern to redesign our web presence. The new Guild pages will give the community access to every area of the Guild. Our hope is that the new site will assist parents, staff and faculty to better understand the Guild’s role and their opportunities to participate. This increased transparency around our roles, responsibilities and process will be a big win for the entire community. Throughout the year, we worked with Lynne Dalgleish on rebranding. At the end of the process, we ratified a new logo for the Guild that will accompany all of our correspondence. Our knight’s name is George and when you see him, you can be sure it is a Guild initiative! I give thanks to Marilyn Beatty, Carolyn Cullen, Gail Graham and Sharron Mollenhauer, this fiscal year’s High Five, whose council and talents are unparalleled. And of special note, warm thanks to Past President Sharron Mollenhauer for her constant support and guidance throughout the year. Also, congratulations to Sharron and Sarah Hillyer for creating a very successful and magical Mistletoe Market amid construction.

Message from the President of the Alumni Association

On behalf of the High Five and Executive, please accept our heartfelt thanks to all Georgian parents, both current and past, for participating in our fairs, concerts, sales and socials. Royal St. George’s is a very special school and a strong community and I feel very fortunate to be a part of it.

Kimberly Cudney, President The Georgian Parents’ Guild

Sandy Gibson President, RSGCAA

T

he Royal St. George’s College Alumni Association is supported by a committed group of staff and volunteers who each bring different skills and interests to the table, and all share a passion for RSGC. It has been an honour to work with the Executive Committee for five years and to serve as President for the last two. Many of our best events come from a collaboration between RSGC staff and alumni. In 2010, Charles Fowler ’86 and Doug Jamieson informed us that Rob Gleadow ’03 and Dr. Jim Leatch were performing in the Canadian Opera Chorus’ rendition of Mozart’s The Magic Flute.

Bernard von Bieberstein ’97 organized A Georgian Evening at the Opera, where more than 35 alumni ate dinner with Rob, attended the performance, enjoyed a backstage tour of the Four Seasons Centre and attended the post-performance celebration for the singers. We lost two of our faculty in the last five years. The Georgian community came out to show its spirit and celebrate the lives of each man, reminding me why RSGC is such a great community.  Richard Holdsworth was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer in 2007. His close friend and fellow faculty member Janet Somerville worked behind the scenes to ensure the perfect celebration of his life. The “Roast of Richard Holdsworth” was born. Over 100 staff and alumni came from as far as Calgary and NYC to roast Richard. Over $20,000 was raised to endow the RSGC Senior Drama Department with an annual bursary in Richard ’s name for a student to spend his summer working with a local theatre company.  Gage Love was one of RSGC’s longest serving teachers and a favourite of many alumni. When Gage passed away, he requested that his funeral be held in the RSGC Chapel, which was filled beyond capacity. Stephen Beatty ’86 asked to dedicate the 2011 Old Boys’ Dinner to his memory, while the Class of 1986, celebrating its 25th reunion, announced an initial pledge of $150,200 to name the new Ball Hockey Tarmac in Gage’s memory. The Class of ’86 challenged other graduating years to also consider this a challenge. One of the most exciting areas in which the RSGCAA has developed over the last five years is its role as a network for the mentoring and professional development of current students

and young alumni. Lead by Alex Edmison ’02, RSGCAA mentoring programs have expanded to include a speed mentoring event for students each fall, a mentoring and networking event to connect young alumni with other alumni in their field each spring, and ad hoc meetings of Georgian alumni in industries like real estate and finance. This year, the RSGCAA launched its newest initiative, Georgian Orientation, under the leadership of Sepehr Banai ’09. In February, young alumni from various universities met with graduating students to give them a candid review of their university experience.  The RSGCAA is a young organization with the potential to grow into one that enriches the lives of all RSGC students, parents, staff and alumni. We hope to continue the growth of our mentoring and networking activities; advance the Georgian Opportunities Fund started by Past President Jamie Lint ’98; and provide new opportunities to connect alumni with athletic events like the RSGCAA Squash Tournament, future artistic and cultural events like A Georgian Evening at the Opera, and family and social events like the RSGC Hockey Night.  I hope you will not only attend these events, but also encourage your friends and families to become active members of the RSGC community. May the RSGCAA enrich your lives as much as it has mine. Thank you for the opportunity to serve as RSGCAA President. 

Sincerely, Sandy Gibson ’01

The Briggs: Part of the RSGC Family

The Briggs family.

S

ometimes things just feel right. So when the time came for Gord and Teresa Briggs to find an independent school for their sons Brendan and John Ross, it was a no-brainer to send them to Royal St. George’s College. “They have different personalities and learning styles,” said Teresa. “I didn’t think the other schools we considered would allow both boys to be challenged and happy. But after visiting RSGC, we were confident they would be able to deliver on this.” That was back in 2003, when John Ross donned the maroon blazer of Grade 5 and Brendan wore the navy jacket of Grade 9. In 2009, their youngest son Liam joined the RSGC family

and is set to graduate with the Class of 2018. With three Georgians in the family, the Briggs know they’re a part of something really special. “You really do feel like your teacher knows your child,” said Teresa. “When Brendan and John Ross were younger, I used to pick them up late. The remaining teachers and staff were still carrying on with a smile and never failed to take the time to greet parents or students warmly. It makes a huge difference and it impacts the students. One can hardly expect happy students without happy teachers.” It definitely rubbed off on John Ross, who is currently studying medicine at St. Andrews University in Scotland. “When I came to RSGC, I was immersed into the community and it was unlike anything I had ever experienced,” he said. “I could feel how much the teachers cared about the students and how united the school was. I made friendships that will last an eternity and memories that I will carry with me forever.” With John Ross studying medicine at St. Andrews, Brendan a recent graduate of the University of Waterloo in computational mathematics and heading to New York to work as a software engineer, and Liam comfortably ensconced in all that it means to be in Grade 7, the Briggs are thrilled by the way their boys have turned out. And they give RSGC a lot of credit. “I think RSGC boys are more grounded,” said Teresa. “My boys have grown to be very resourceful and they recognize how fortunate they are. A lot of it comes from experiencing the way RSGC handles day-to-day school life. For example, RSGC using nearby sports facilities to

14 Royal St. George’s College 2011-12 Annual Report

Campaign Realizes New Fundraising Heights for RSGC supplement its own on-site facilities created a teaching moment for the boys. In doing so, RSGC demonstrates that one doesn’t need to own much to live a full life. All one needs is the will to do things – that’s what our boys have learned and it’s a very valuable life lesson.” John Ross also believes RSGC has played a vital role in shaping him into the man he is today. “I learned something different from everyone at RSGC,” he said. “I was instilled with not only the values of being a Georgian, but also of being a young man. I learned the importance of a good handshake, which is indispensable in whatever you go on to do in life. The Georgian Code of ‘Respect, Responsibility & Voice’ is another important value. It made me realize that wherever I go, my actions and words reflect on me.” Because RSGC has played such a vital role in their boys’ lives, the Briggs have felt very strongly about giving back to the school, both through Annual Giving and the Honouring Our Past | Building Our Future Campaign. “We just know we have to give back,” said Gord. “The school has given so much to our sons. Our boys would have been here cumulatively for 21 years by the time Liam graduates – 21 years of their formative years! We just have to give back.” As for John Ross, he still has several years of medical school to go, but knows he’ll give back to the school when he’s in a position to do so. “RSGC became a second home for me,” he said. “Giving back so other students can experience that sense of community is very important to me. Waking up in the morning and wanting to go to school is what school should be about.”

A

t the end of the 2011-12 school year, total giving to the Honouring Our Past | Building Our Future Campaign was just over $3.8 million. Since that time, gifts have continued to flow, bringing the total to just below the $4.5 million mark. In support of the College’s largest capital project undertaken to date, we have marshalled much of our community to establish a new fundraising benchmark for the College. Notable among actualized results are the participation rates for the Board, faculty and staff, 100% of whom have offered their support. Parents have similarly come aboard in force, with nearly half having made a pledge of support and many others pending a commitment after having been asked. Alumni – especially those celebrating significant milestones since graduation – continue to give and have generously sponsored a significant part of the refocused outdoor space for the use and benefit of Georgian students. The Gage Love Ball Hockey Tarmac is their gift to boys of current and future generations and is sure to be well used, loved and appreciated by all who have the chance to enjoy it. Dedicated Campaign volunteers continue to advance our fundraising results and the community building that has accompanied the effort. By banding together, the RSGC community has delivered significantly in advancing the school’s facilities and available space, while also developing its fundraising capacity and culture of philanthropy, all of which are significant achievements to be celebrated and used as the basis for further, future successes. Students, parents, Board, alumni, faculty, staff and friends should all feel proud of their role in building an even brighter future for the wonderful institution that is Royal St. George’s College!

Message from the Treasurer

T

Cathy Bateman Treasurer

his has been a very exciting year of investment for the College – the very boldest in the history of the school. Our boys will enjoy the new campus and facilities, whether they are Georgians close to moving on to universities of their choice or have just arrived. We have a charming campus and a solid financial base as we look forward to celebrating our 50th anniversary in 2014. The College is financially sound and is well positioned for the future with a tuition fee reserve at 11% - slightly above our target of 10%. The budget is built each year so that fixed and non-discretionary costs are within the fees from an attainable enrollment of 405 students. This protects us from the financial risks caused by the unpredictability of enrolment levels and from any pressure to accept students not meeting our criteria. All additional expenses, both variable for a higher student population and discretionary expenditures, are only incurred when enrolment exceeds 405. RSGC’s net cash position stands at $255,000, which is a cash position of $3 million net of a construction loan of $2.7 million. This is a decrease from a $2.1 million cash position last year. Operations and donations generated $1.9 million of cash flow, before depreciation. A total of $5.9 million has been invested in property, plant and equipment compared to $2.5 million last year. The most significant expenditure this year was the major construction project that will be completed this fall. Of the total anticipated expenditure of $10.7 million, $1.2 million was incurred last year, $5.6 million this year and $3.9 million in 2012-2013. The continuing renovation, repair and replacement program resulted in $500,000 being invested in current plant refurbishment and $75,000 in new technology. Our total investment, net of depreciation, in

16 Royal St. George’s College 2011-12 Annual Report

property, plant and equipment is $18.3 million, including $7.8 million in construction in progress, as of June 30, 2012, compared to $13.3 million at last year end. We received generous donations of $1.3 million this year, which have helped considerably with the expenditure on the new buildings and facilities. We are hopeful that the remaining 50% of our parent population will be able to make a contribution in the next few months and help us minimize our borrowing needs and debt service costs. We have credit facilities in place for the full amount of planned investment. I took over the role of your Treasurer and Chair of the Finance Committee a year ago from the capable hands of Wanda Ho. I would like to thank Wanda for her four years in the role. I would also like to express my sincere gratitude to Andy Whiteley, our CFO, for all of his help. His interest in, fondness for and commitment to this school is second to none. Thanks also to his team of Sandra Skinner and Elden Fulton. You should know that our staff and faculty are extraordinarily responsible in how they manage constraints on funds available. Despite the economic challenges of recent years, Tom Stevens and Rachel DeBlois have done a terrific job of maintaining robust enrolment levels, which provides much appreciated relief in managing the financial demands of the College. Our 2012-2013 forecast looks strong, with enrolment at 446 students. If you have any questions about the financial statements included in this Annual Report, please call Andy Whiteley or me.
