Annual Appeal

Annual Appeal 2018

Donations to the Annual Appeal from current and former families and staff have created a vibrant culture of philanthropy at GNS and supported our school in many different ways. In 2018/2019, 53% of current parents and 96% of staff gave to the Annual Appeal.

The Annual Appeal is a vital part of the WONDER Campaign. WONDER will power the most extensive facilities renewal GNS has undertaken in our century-old history. We will transform the learning experience of all current and future students with new spaces and the tools needed to enhance our exceptional teaching and learning.

You can choose to support our campus transformation at Beach Drive or Pemberton Woods, or make a donation to General Campus Transformation for the whole school. Or your gift can go directly to programs (such as Band, Choir, Outdoor Education, individual sports), Financial Aid, or the area of greatest need.

  1. Make your Donation Online, or
  2. Contact the Advancement Office (250.370.6801 or advancement@mygns.ca) to discuss your options.
