Annual Fund

The German educator, Kurt Hahn, believed that each of us has more courage, more strength, and more compassion than we would ever have initially believed. 

We are extremely proud of our Shawnigan family, through many generations, who are making a difference in this fast-paced, ever-changing world. We hope that each and every one of you found someone at the School who helped you to see that there is more to you than you first dared think.

“Graham Anderson was inspirational and taught me how to learn – how to capture the essence from a lecture, a book or an article, which were the tools I needed for university. On reflection, he changed my life, and, for so many students, he made a difference.”

MacKinley Bourne ’22 (Strathcona)

"Shawnigan has taught me the importance of applying myself to the best of my ability. Being out in the real world has made me recognize that Shawnigan's community nurtures kindness and values a good character like no other. The School has supported me and given me amazing opportunities that have shaped me to be the person I am today."

Sonja Leverkus ’97 (Groves’)

“Shawnigan to me was not just about getting a high school education – Shawnigan gave me the drive, dedication, and determination to achieve highly and to bring others with me on that path.” 

Each year, we are hugely grateful to the Shawnigan community for their contributions to the Annual Fund.
All gifts, no matter the amount, enhance the Shawnigan Journey and allow our students to access first class resources and facilities so that they can thrive. Help us to help them realize that

“The Shawnigan experience challenges you to learn things about yourself whilst also welcoming you in a community filled with compassion and care. No matter the situation, Shawnigan will always be there for you and help you find a way to get through it and persevere. For me, this experience has been like no other.”
We acknowledge with respect the Coast Salish Peoples on whose traditional lands and waterways we live, learn and play. We are grateful for the opportunity to share in this beautiful region, and we aspire to healthy and respectful relationships with those who have lived on and cared for these lands for millennia.
