Friends of AvH

The Friends of AvH are a registered charity with a mission to raise funds to support AvH's development efforts.  Throughout the year, they organize a variety of fundraising events and activities to raise funds within and outside the school community.

Did you know that AvH, which counted a mere 22 students in 1980, is home to over 290 today? Over 340 students have graduated since then! When AvH moved to its Baie-D’Urfé location in 1984, the school building was very different from the one you see today. Over 35 years later, the school has grown not only in the number of students but also in size after several expansions:

  • 1995 - 7 new classrooms
  • 1997 - 4 new classrooms
  • 2004 - New classrooms, physics labs, art room, parent-teacher meeting room, cafeteria
  • 2007 - Extension of the cafeteria and new courtyard landscaping
  • 2009 - Construction of the Hagen Sports Centre and 4 additional classrooms
  • 2015 - Complete renovation and upgrading of the Biology and Chemistry Lab
  • 2018 - Renovation of the Kindergarten rooms and bathrooms
  • 2019 - Funding of the solar panels on the roof in line with AvH's strategic goals of becoming a Green school

Every year, we provide financial support to the AvH sports and debating teams that make it to the provincial and national levels of their competitions.

Every project undertaken depends in large part on the commitment and support of AvH families and friends. By contributing to our Fundraising Campaigns, every member of the AvH community and the greater community is given the opportunity to improve the school. No matter how small or large, every gift has a direct bearing on what matters most: the education of our children.

Your gift can help in many ways. Apart from traditional fundraising events such as the Oktoberfest, donations are always welcome to fund student activities in sports, music and arts, or to help pay for student scholarships and awards.

Enjoy the personal satisfaction of helping students by making your donation today. Simply complete our donation form and drop it off at the office together with your gift.
