In a statement written for his college application, Alumnus Chris Persels writes:
"...My education became one long conversation with curiosity. With abundant field trips and hands-on exploration, the world was my textbook and the classroom a launch pad for understanding, creative expression, and personal growth. Such independence satiated the fundamental desire of every child to feel responsible and respected. It taught us to function like grown-ups while granting us the wiggle-room of growing-ups.”
Sustaining this experience is what the Annual Fund is really all about. The fulfillment of our aspirations for our students is only possible because of Barrie School community's ever-increasing generosity to the Annual Fund.
