Families

The Loyola community depends on the support and care of its families.

There are several parent groups within the school that are responsible for a number of truly fantastic initiatives during the year: the Mothers' Guild, the Parents' Association, and the Grad Dance Committee. 

By sharing your unique talents and skills, you not only enrich our students' lives at Loyola, but you also provide an example of leadership and service for students at Loyola. Through giving your time and energy, we trust that you will also feel a connectedness and a strong sense of community here at Loyola.

Support Loyola

Each year Loyola turns to its alumni, parents, staff and friends for their financial support of the Annual Giving Campaign. It is a way of engaging the entire community in the school’s mission of educating and forming “men and women for others”. It enables donors to make a real difference, regardless of the size of their gift.

    Secondary 4 Experience Week

    All day

    From February 19 to February 24, 2023, all Secondary 4 students will be engaged in formative activities rooted in Ignatian pedagogy. These experiences will allow them to analyze the context in which they serve, to evaluate and reflect on lived experience and empower them to take action. The Experience Week at Loyola has been an integral part of our spiritual programming for years as your children live out the Grad and Grad characteristics that lead them to be men for others.

The Loyola Parents' Association (LPA) is a dynamic group of parent volunteers who organize various activities to support Loyola High School.

They represent all parents and their mission is to promote a sense of community and collaboration among families and the Faculty, Staff and Administration of the school.

The LPA hosts several events throughout the year.
  • Annual fall event
  • Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week
  • Lecture evenings for parents and students on current topics
  • Open Forum meetings
  • Annual Meet & Greet
  • Parent reception during Senior Information Night

All funds raised are proudly allocated to various causes:

  • Teachers' "Wish list"
  • Library resources
  • Student Awards and Plaques
  • Secondary IV Experience Week
  • The school’s greatest needs

The strength of the Loyola Parents' Association lies in the parents' dedication, enthusiasm, participation and love of the school. We welcome parents or guardians to join us throughout the year as your help and ideas are always greatly appreciated!

Mothers guild

Connect with the Mothers Guild

The mandate of the Mothers' Guild is to raise money for the Loyola High School Bursary Fund. This fund is set up to provide deserving students with the financial assistance needed for them to attend Loyola.

The Mothers' Guild supports the below initiatives and activities listed below.

However, due to the pandemic, we will be modifying these in-school events and looking for new ways to continue our fundraising efforts to engage with the Loyola community.

  • Supporting the Loyola Store
    Clothing sales are held before the start of school and on several other occasions during the school year
  • Junior Information Night
    The Mothers’ Guild hosts a welcome wine and cheese for Secondary 1 & 2 parents after they meet the teachers.
  • Memorial Mass
    The Mothers’ Guild hosts a reception following Mass in the Bishops’ Atrium.
  • Wine & Cheese Fundraiser
    The Mothers' Guild transforms the school for a fun afternoon for our Loyola community to participate in a silent auction, games, raffles and socialize. This is the perfect opportunity to get to know other parents.
  • Meet & Greet
    Come talk to us if you are interested in joining the Mothers' Guild. All current mothers welcome. We are always looking for volunteers!
  • Communion Breakfast
    Hosted on the Sunday prior to Mother's Day, the morning begins with a Mass in the Eric Maclean, S.J. Centre. A continental breakfast is then served in the Atrium. A special guest speaker is invited to share their experiences and finally, the Mothers’ Guild presents their Annual report. Families welcome.
