Bringing Down the House - Our Biggest Alumni Event Ever!

It was wonderful to see over 200 alumni, alumni parents, alumni faculty and alumni staff as well as a number of our current faculty and staff at Bringing Down the House on June 5th.

Guests enjoyed a delicious catered dinner, wines from Painted Rock Estate Winery and beer from the Whistler Brewing Company, and took home a commemorative Bringing Down the House tee shirt from The grand door prize was a weekend at the Westin Whistler Resort & Spa.

Nostalgia was in the air as guests gathered in the photo booth and wrote graffiti messages throughout the old Glenmore wing. It was a memorable evening for everyone! 

Thank you to our organizing committee for all their work - Dierdre Ert & Tina Rowntree, Co-Chairs, Bev O'Neill, Linda Wolverton, Jeannie Senft, Darlene Howard, Dan Sander '97 and Pat Ward '90.

Our special thanks to our generous sponsors who contributed to much to the success of the event:

Roger's Retirement Roast
Roger's Retirement Roast was held at the Hollyburn Country Club on June 14, attracting over 150 rugby alumni and faculty. Rugby stories from the past 29 years were recounted as Roger Hatch was honoured for his outstanding commitment to Collingwood School and to its rugby program.

Roger, a long serving and trusted teacher, coach, mentor and friend to alumni, students parents, faculty and staff, retires this month after 29 years of service to Collingwood. In recognition of his extraordinary contributions to the Collingwood community, the Roger Hatch Fund has been established in his honour. The purpose of the fund is to provide scholarships and bursaries to deserving students who demonstrate great promise in athletic endeavours.
