Giving at Friends'

Illuminate - Campaign for The Friends' School

By Bill Avery, Director of Community Engagement


Many in our community will have seen that as we complete and celebrate 135 years of Friends’ students making a positive difference locally, nationally and globally, we are proud to launch, Illuminate – Campaign for The Friends’ School. Illuminate provides an opportunity for our community to show leadership and vision to enable our school to be the best it can be. We are inviting our community to support the School by making a philanthropic investment in the transformation of the WN Oats Centre. 


Early and inspiring support from our community has been generous and vital, contributing 65% towards our goal of $2M to enable these vital new facilities and programs. We sincerely thank those who have already donated.


Now the Illuminate campaign seeks further support to achieve our goal. Pledges or donations will assist in completing the WN Oats Centre and enrich the lives of 1000’s of students for decades to come.

Community Appreciation Day and the Opening of The Revell Sports Centre

By Bill Avery, Director of Community Engagement

Each year the School expresses its appreciation for the many contributions of our community to Friends’ - whether that be time, funds, mind or items. These contributions have a direct and positive impact on Friends’ students and the School appreciates very deeply the enhanced educational journey it is able to offer students thanks to the support of our community. 

Thank you to all our community members who attended the inaugural Community Appreciation Day that was held on 19 May 2022. The event was also the official naming and opening of The Revell Sports Centre.
