Unlike some older schools, Marymount has no form of endowment, meaning that we are entirely reliant on income from fees and philanthropy. Every building of campus has benefitted from some form of philanthropic support from the Marymount community. Each generation of Marymount families has “paid it forward” for the generations to come.
In 2019, Marymount embarked on a new, exciting and sustainable vision for the renewal of the School campus which will affect every student at the School. Summer 2019 has begun with the growing Middle School in mind. We share the exciting news that our entering Grade 6 class is our largest in the School’s history. During summer 2019, we have refurbished the Staff Centre, originally built in the 1960s as a temporary library, into two flexible STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics) classrooms.
In the 2019-2020 academic year, we will be looking to raise funds for our sports programme. We are currently seeking to provide more space for dance, a required class for all MYP students at Marymount and IB subject in 2020-2021, as well as greater all-weather space for outdoor sports such as tennis. In addition, we expect to make improvements to the Sister Anne Marie Hill Sports Hall, originally built in the 1980s, to give each student the opportunity to be active and to create habits of healthy living.
All donors and supporters are vital to the ongoing success of the school.
