A Progressive Education for 3 Months to Grade 12


Bringing community together

Each year, Barrie School hosts its annual celebration and fundraiser to bring our community together to raise critical funds for the Barrie School Annual Fund.  

With an array of items in both the live and silent auctions, this annual event generates friendly, competitive bidding and a lot of fun, not to mention funds for the Annual Fund. For 90 years, Barrie School has inspired excellence, intrinsic motivation, and responsibility through innovation in learning. From our beginnings as the Peter Pan School on Allison Street, NW with 13 students, to our current, 45-acre campus in Silver Spring with over 350 students, we have a proud, and long-standing commitment of honoring our founder's vision, through our current mission and values.

Join us on March 2, 2024 

On Saturday, March 2, 2024, the Barrie School community will come together at this annual fundraiser to support our students, teachers, and staff. Join us at “Casino Night” to roll the dice, up the ante, and cash in your chips for what promises to be a night of fun and philanthropy!

Make new friends, bid on fabulous items in our live and silent auctions, play the odds and raise your paddles–all in support of our wonderful school! Have fun with the theme and dress accordingly!
