Tribute to Lisa Dias
On December 24, 2022, Loyola lost one of our best. Lisa Dias, faculty member and Campus Minister, was dedicated to the school, but more particularly: its students. She spent hours after school and weekends running the After School program, and as Religion Department Head enriched the spiritual life of countless students.
All those students who were blessed to know her as a teacher and moderator know that she regarded them all with the greatest care and commitment. Her drive was to ensure they became compassionate, intelligent, and successful young men full of strong character.
At the end of the 2022-23 school year, a video was created in collaboration with Loyola alumni to pay tribute to her legacy. You can watch that video and see a few quotes from current students and a colleague below:

Lisa Dias Memorial Fund
On April 18, during our first Giving Day, two large anonymous donations were made to the bursary fund in honour of Lisa Dias. The donors expressed a wish to create a memorial fund that would honour her legacy in perpetuity at Loyola High School.
Since that announcement of a fund in her honour, over 100 people have contributed, bringing the total raised to $72,500. For a fund to be endowed at Loyola High School, and exist in perpetuity, it must exceed $100,000. Please consider contributing and helping ensuring the Lisa Dias Memorial Fund becomes endowed. This means that your money is invested and generates revenue that will support students in perpetuity and keep Lisa's memory alive for generations to come.
