In 2011, HGS established an Advancement Office that includes development, alumni relations, and communications functions.
The Board has a critically important role to play in advancing the mission of the Halifax Grammar School. The Board approves the School’s mission. It leads the development of a shared vision and establishes clear strategic priorities for the School. It appoints a Head of School with the passion, commitment, and skills required to implement the strategic plan and to advance the School’s mission. It provides effective oversight of the School’s operations, including its finances, human resources, and relationships with the school community. The Board also bears a critical responsibility for sourcing the funds and other resources required to support the School’s Mission.
Governors are expected to demonstrate leadership in garnering philanthropic and other support for the School. All Board members are expected to participate in the School’s Annual Campaign and periodic Capital Campaigns, to their individual ability to do so. Board members are also expected to encourage others to support the School’s fundraising efforts.
