Message from the Executive Director of Advancement I am now in my fourth year working at St. Andrew’s College, and in that time I have learned a great deal. But if I could share only one thing about SAC, it would be the strength and value of the Andrean brotherhood. I hear it and feel it in the halls of the School, on my travels, and while watching sports, drama or music — and I am honoured to be part of it. Our Old Boys continue to support their School generously. We are extremely grateful for that funding and encouraged by the 11% increase in their annual giving over last year. Of the $540,000 donated in annual funds this year, the majority went toward the $1.9 million we spent on financial aid to our 116 scholarship and bursary recipients. The students, and the entire School community, are grateful indeed

varied aspects of the School and the Andrean experience: scholarships, bursaries, academic programs, athletics, Cadets, Prize Day awards, Towers Library, archives, art, IT, and other operational expenses. At $23.6 million the endowment has enormous impact, yet the needs of the School are great and we must continue to develop the funds further. The same with our capital needs. The strategic plan prioritizes completion of Phase II of our Campus Master Plan, which will affect priority areas, including music, drama, assembly space, engineering & robotics, business leadership, athletics, and food services. Our facilities must be maintained and developed to ensure that our programs are cutting-edge, competitive and attractive. We cannot

“It’s about brotherhood, community and helping secure the future for others.” for this support. Without it, many budding young Andreans might never experience what SAC means — an extraordinary legacy of learning, experience and brotherhood. But, of course, it’s much more than that … add the families, past and present; the faculty and staff; the Governors and Trustees; indeed, everyone touched by this wonderful place, and we have the Andrean community. This broad community nurtures and protects the nature and fabric of our institution with unending pride and commitment. Homecoming, MacPherson Tournament, the Red & White Gala, Carol Service, and Cadets in Concert are but a few of the more than 25 annual events that involve and engage us. Our community support is reflected in total donations last year of $1,907,544. I am convinced that as we reflect on the value of our shared experience with SAC, this will continue to grow. Most significant, perhaps, is the concept of legacy and securing the future for others. The Prefects’ theme this year is ‘Legacy: How Will You be Remembered?’. Our endowment helps secure the future and includes 126 funds that support 34 Fall 2011

rely on tuition and associated fees for capital development. Philanthropic support is essential. And so we ask our Andrean community to step in and fill the gap — by making capital gifts to fund buildings and programs and by planning endowments and bequests that will continue to provide for the future — just as those who came before us have done. I am very grateful for the opportunity to help advance St. Andrew’s College. My sincere thanks to Old Boys, parents and the entire Andrean community for your support. You help secure the future of SAC whenever you give of your time, talent and treasure. Thank you.

Headmaster’s 2011 Prize Day Speech

Erin Hogue

This is an excerpt from the speech given by Headmaster Kevin McHenry It is a privilege for me to welcome everyone to this, the 112th Prize Day ceremony at St. Andrew’s College. Prize Day is a day to celebrate all our achievements of the past year: a day to reflect on our individual accomplishments as well as our collective success as part of the Andrean community. ‘Brotherhood, Greater than Self’ was our theme this year. I don’t believe that I’ve ever heard a better phrase to describe the Andrean experience.

Instead, I chose to refer to this collection of 119 young men as a group. Only a small percentage of our grads will receive an award this afternoon.

He wrote: “What lies behind us and what lies ahead of us are only tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” My wish is that you take this message to heart, and hopefully, you will often remember that your St. Andrew’s experience helped to shape the potential that lies within each of you. I wish each and every one of you all the best as you begin the next journey of your life. Congratulations to the Class of 2011!

St. Andrew’s College Endowment Fund The St. Andrew’s College Endowment Fund provides stability, vision and a sense of permanence. It reinforces that our mission is important, our community believes in us, and we are here for the long term. With a history of more than 113 years, St. Andrew’s is indeed here for the long term and we are grateful to have a community that believes in us and offers their financial support to benefit future generations of Andreans. Our impressive list of endowed funds speaks to the loyalty, commitment and trust of our generous supporters. The earnings from the invested endowed funds provide financial support to designated aspects of the Andrean experience. Each of our endowment fund donors has indicated spe-

cifically how they wish their endowment to be used. Individual documentation for each fund directs the trustees of the Foundation as to how the earned income is to be spent. Because of these directions, we know that the endowment fund earnings achieve many things: provide young men with the financial means to attain the SAC education that will set them on a solid course for their future; recognize and reward students for academic, athletic, musical, dramatic and leadership success; as well as fund programs that enhance specialized educational and co-curricular programs. Thank you to all our generous donors past and present for your loyalty, commitment, and trust in the mission of St. Andrew’s College. EDNA COLLINS

The 1899 Society It is with pride and a true sense of community that the Board of Governors of St. Andrew’s College has launched The 1899 Society. The formation of this important connection to members of our community reflects one of the key goals of the SAC 2011–2016 Strategic Plan, Shaping Our Future. We will recognize supporters of the School through The 1899 Society in many ways: • new recognition circles – to be implemented in 2012, • by class year for Old Boys, • alphabetical listing for parents, past parents, grandparents and friends, current and past faculty and staff, and corporations and foundations, • naming opportunities with capital or programmatic projects, • tribute gifts in honour of individuals, and • donor wall displays for special appeals and campaigns.

NEWS FROM THE PARENTS GUILD The 39th annual Red & White Gala, Not An Ordinary Place, was held on Saturday, April 16 at the Terrace Banquet Hall in Vaughan. Close to 400 guests, including parents, board members, faculty and staff, and friends of SAC, enjoyed a wonderful dinner, danced to the popular sounds of the Nu-Rhythm Band, and bid on a vast selection of silent and live auction items. The heritage and tradition of St. Andrew’s College was evident throughout the evening. SAC students in their Number 1 dress welcomed guests to the event. Scenes from SAC past and present decorated the main reception area while touches of the SAC tartan and splashes of red beautifully complemented the elegant ballroom décor. Throughout the cocktail hour, guests tried their luck with games of chance while being serenaded by our own SAC students. Those guests who chose to try their luck for the beautiful diamond eternity necklace received a special limited edition vintage SAC Prefect pin as part of their purchase, a nostalgic memento befitting the theme. Guests were welcomed to dinner with the stirring sounds of the Pipes and Drums, always a favourite feature of the Gala. Before the competitive bidding began for the always-anticipated 52 Fall 2011
