We can't wait to see you at the Athletics Gala, where we'll discover the heart of the incredible athletics program at Albert College. Proceeds from the gala will support the Senior School gymnasium renovation and athletic equipment at the Junior School. 

Bring a teammate or assemble a squad and gear up for an epic and elegant evening of fun and athletics-inspired revelry at Albert College. Let the games begin!

Proceeds from the Athletics Gala will support the Senior School gymnasium renovation and the purchase of new athletic equipment at the Junior School.

We are pleased to announce that proceeds from the Athletics Gala will support the athletics program at Albert College. A renovation of the Senior School gymnasium is needed, including the replacement of the gym floor, new doors, paint, matts, basketball hoops, etc. Thanks to the generosity of an Alumni Parent family, a donation of $100,000 has already been made towards this important project. Also, a donation of $21,500 from an Alumni has been generously received. Additional donations for this project are currently underway. This renovation will keep our athletics program strong and will give our students a safe and healthy environment to gain confidence, develop new skills and their love of sports.

Proceeds will also be used to purchase new athletic equipment for students at the Junior School. Equipment is need for outside on the playground to keep our students active and engaged. Athletics is often the choice of students during recess and active play time - an important part of our students' healthy development. Due to the popularity of the gaga ball pit, a second pit will be installed on the playground and new balls for both pits will be purchased. Movable soccer nets, hockey nets, balls, cones, etc. will be purchased to encourage outdoor play. A new slide will also be installed in the Kindergarten playground area to encourage healthy active play.

Our goal of $75,000 will make this dream a reality and will fund these important projects at Albert College for our students. This exciting project is just the beginning of many more to come over the next 5 years as part of our new strategic plan and our goal to innovate the space. Help us reach our goal by attending the gala, or making a donation to support this project.
