Funding Priorities

We are entering a tremendously exciting time in the evolution of our school, and the spirit of philanthropy that exists at TFS will continue to play a vital role in the years to come.
 
With tuition fees covering basic operating costs, we rely on the generosity of our community to help us provide the enhanced programs, spaces and resources we need to nurture and prepare our students to lead and contribute in a complex world.
 
Our priorities for 2019 are two-fold. First, funds raised this year will enable necessary early investments towards those high-priority transformative initiatives announced in September 2018 that have emerged through the master plan process. These initiatives will take our school to the next level.
 
In addition, gifts received will also help us bring to life the following annual priorities next fall:

Our funding priorities:

List of 3 items.

  • Improvements to Teaching and Learning Environments

     
    • Making Thinking Visible: continue to upgrade classrooms at the Senior School and West Campus with audio-visual equipment that makes learning more visible and active, and provides opportunities for classroom innovation, collaboration and brainstorming.
    • Full STEAM Ahead: create a new science lab and invest in film and media equipment for an integrated tech hub in the Senior School, to support the development of critical and creative thinking skills by encouraging an analytical approach and new ways of solving problems.
  • Enhancements to Community and Citizenship Spaces

     
    • Encouraging Physical and Imaginative Play: raise the remaining funds required to create a new playground for our Junior School students.
    • Sing, Dance, Unite: enhance artistic performances, assemblies and community events at La p’tite école with a new sound system for the gym.
  • Continued Financial Support for Students

     
    • Entrance Scholarships: offer full-tuition scholarships to talented, high-achieving students entering Grade 7 or above, who could not otherwise afford to attend TFS, while also enriching the educational experience for all students.
    • Bursaries: provide short-term financial support to current families in need, so that their children can continue learning and growing at TFS. Families with a child graduating may wish to support this important program by making a gift to their Class Fund, in honour of their child and the education they have received at TFS.
