Welcome to the Fold! Annual Giving 2021-2022

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Sep 23, 2021 9:54:39 AM

Welcome to the KES Highlander Fold! Providing a welcoming environment for our Students, Parents, Faculty, Alumni, and the greater KES Community is the foundation of our new KES Highlander ethos of “Welcome to the Fold.” A unique aspect of Highland Cattle is that they live in folds, not herds. Hence, “Welcome to the Fold!” Our goal at KES is to build an inclusive and accessible community for everyone. We recognize that becoming a fully accessible School is a journey of continuous improvement and as part of this year’s Annual Giving Campaign, we are starting phase one of our journey. 


Integral to the overall KES experience is how well we facilitate movement on our Campus. Therefore, our first Annual Giving Campaign goal is to begin eliminating physical barriers through important campus improvements. Currently, some members of our community struggle to access the Hensley Memorial Chapel safely. To eliminate this physical barrier to the Chapel, we plan to build a ramp that will dovetail into the beautiful stonework of this historic 1877 building. Also, as part of Phase One of the KES accessibility plan, we will pave the Ted Canavan Athletic Centre parking area, allowing easier and safer, year-round access to Campus.


The second goal of our Annual Giving Campaign is to continue to ensure our School is accessible to every student who has the desire to receive a KES education regardless of their financial means. Financial Aid is always a priority at KES. One third of KES Students depend on our Financial Aid and Scholarship Programme every year. As enrolment continues to grow, so does our need for financial aid funding! Every time you give, you are making it possible for motivated students to bridge the gap between their finances and their educational goal of attending KES. Without donations from the KES Community, we must consider raising tuition fees each year which in turn makes KES less accessible to students who want to attend our School.

Connect, Converse, Catch-Up - Lucy Killacky

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Mar 24, 2021 1:57:00 PM

Lucy Killacky was a quiet girl with a mischievous smile who sat at the back of my Grade 9 English class in my first year at King’s-Edgehill. Over the next four years, I had the pleasure of coaching Lucy in both basketball (for three seasons) and rugby (for four seasons). Throughout those years, it was evident that Lucy was on a path that would lead her to success. Her maturity and moral compass seemed to make her wise beyond her years. Upon graduating, Lucy and I stayed in contact as she worked her way through a university degree and a varsity rugby career at my alma mater, StFX.
