Annual General Meeting

PCI Alumni:

A special thanks to all the alumni who volunteered this year, attended meetings, school assemblies and especially those who made financial donations.

Thanks to your efforts, we were able to add more money to the scholarships given to the current student body. A total of $6,000.00 was given out. This year’s awards were given to:

Award Recipient
Alumni Award of Distinction Issy Simone
The Leone Farrell STEM Award Sophia Balevicius
The Al Skeoch Award for School Spirit Harini Priya
The Irene Atkinson Community Leadership Award Amanda Stekel
The Kutty and Associates Good Character Award Matt Smith


We are looking for new volunteers to serve on the Board of Directors and the Executive and to organize and participate in alumni events. We will begin in-person fundraisers again in 2023, beginning with our Theatre night April 27th at the Village Playhouse.

The Annual General Meeting (AGM) will be held on Nov 29th at 7 pm in the PCI Library or you can attend virtually via Zoom. To attend via Zoom please send Gerry an email and he will send you an invite link.

The AGM will include the election of three board member positions and the approval of a change to the By-Laws. If you are interested in sitting on the Board of Directors or participating in any other way please contact either Gerry or Simon.

If you can't donate your time... money is the next best thing. All donations are tax deductible and can be made using one of the methods below.


Gerry Holmes,

President and Chair of the Board
