AS Queen’s College celebrates its 123rd anniversary, the school’s Alumni Association is calling on all former students and teachers to “give back”.
The QCAA in conjunction with the Queen’s College Foundation, will be hosting a phone-a-thon on February 27 and 28.
Alumni volunteers will be contacting fellow alumni, seeking donations towards a major capital project at the school.
Raquel Wilson, president of the QCAA, encouraged all alumni and friends of Queen’s College to donate to this worthy cause.
“As we have all been benefactors of stellar education, which has provided the foundation for excellence in our careers and our lives, I sincerely ask all alumni to assist us in raising funds that will help a new generation of QC students, and it will help to continue the tradition of excellence at our great alma mater.”
The foundation is seeking to raise funds for the construction of a new eight-room classroom block for the high school.
This is an essential project, as the school continues to grow, requiring more space for new students.
Mrs Wilson said: “Over the past ten years, the school has significantly impacted its infrastructure, constructing a new Early Learning Centre, a cafeteria, a new classroom block, a recreational pavilion and adding to the environmental aesthetic of the campus by beautifying the school’s entrance.
“All alumni who may not have visited the school in some time, come out to the school’s fair on Saturday March 9 at noon and visit the QCAA booth where we will be happy to share the projects we are working on and reintroduce you to a new and improved Queen’s College.”
