Donors make a positive impact for every student
Students learn deeply when they can explore their own interests and develop skills and goals that are meaningful to them. The Area of Greatest Need supports experiences, facilities, tools and resources that define our supportive, student-centered learning environment.
Last year, donations to this fund allowed the school to immediately address a variety of students’ interests and needs for well-being, including new basketball uniforms for teams from all divisions, sweatshirts for the Senior School robotics team and push-button door operators to improve campus accessibility in five high-priority areas across the school. This fund also purchased adjustable ergonomic furniture to improve classroom accessibility for students with individual needs, portable art kits for Junior School students, storage to protect instruments for our younger students’ curricular and extracurricular learning, and new theatre technologies for performing arts classes and productions. The Area of Greatest Need also funded workshops that foster leadership and community-building skills for Middle and Senior School boarding students who represent BSS across Canada and around the world.
