All alumni, alumni parents and alumni faculty
are invited to our Spring Fling!
With the construction of our new Morven campus well underway, we won't be holding a Spring Fair or an Alumni Summer Party this year - so we're having an Alumni spring party at Morven instead! 

Please join us for a nostalgic return to the Morven campus, catch up with faculty and friends, check out our progress and hear about our exciting plans for the new campus. No charge for admission and guests are welcome!

News from Collingwood


Great progress continues to be made with the construction site at Morven changing daily! While the school was enjoying Spring Break our construction workers were busy each day, rain or shine.



As we watch the new school being built up, we are also witnessing the 'de-construction' of our 'old' gymnasium! Heatherbrae, our construction company, has been working diligently over the March Break to transform our old gym and incorporate it into the new building plan. The project continues on schedule, with a focus to ensure that disruption to our students and teachers is at an absolute minimum.



Building Excellence: The Campaign for Collingwood

is focussed on the redevelopment project at the Morven Campus. The funds raised from our Capital Campaign go directly to supporting the building of the new school and will have a profound impact on the future of Collingwood School. The campaign goal is $10 million, of which over $4 million has been raised to date from Collingwood families, alumni families, faculty and staff.
