Torch - Fall 2016

Thank You from the Chairs

In this fall 2016 issue of the Torch/Annual Report , we explore the concept of confidence, its meaning to our girls during their time at Havergal and its value beyond the ivy. Confidence is an integral component in the living of Havergal’s values—Integrity, Inquiry, Compassion and Courage—and is exemplified in the school’s mission statement: Preparing young women to make a difference . As the Chair of the Havergal College Board of Governors and the Chair of The Havergal College Foundation Board of Trustees for the 2015–16 school year, we have been privileged to lead a senior group of volunteers in carrying forward the school’s strategic vision. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our fellow governors and trustees for their commitment to Havergal. We would also like to acknowledge other groups who provide opportunities for confidence- building through enhancing the engagement between our students and our rich and varied community. The volunteers of the Havergal Old Girls Association (HOGA) and the Havergal College Parents Association (HCPA) are two such groups, and we extend our gratitude to them for the important work they do in keeping the Havergal community vibrant and connected. We appreciate the philanthropic support of each and every one named in this Annual Report and we invite our entire community to invest in our students as we foster opportunities to develop individual passions and confidence in who they are. The Limitless Campaign will bring to life our strategic vision of delivering leading programs in spaces that inspire learning. The facilities that our students use today have largely been financed by generous donations from prior Havergal generations. It is our collective responsibility to invest now for your daughters and for future students. Our Strategic Plan, Havergal 2020: Our Vision is Limitless , fosters confidence through action and responsibility in all aspects of community life. This is an exciting time.
