School celebrates success of $5m funding campaign

Mount Saint Agnes Academy has raised more than $5 million for school improvements through a six-and-a-half year campaign.

Chairman of the school's Board of Governors, Garry Madeiros, said the Investing Together for Tomorrow campaign had resulted in $5,129,448 since its launch in 2006.

With the funds, the school has been able to liquidate its debt, completely renovate the science laboratory and music room, create two media labs, build new changing rooms and bathrooms and add $1 million to the MSA Endowment Fund.

In celebration of the campaign's success, the school recently hosted a cocktail party, where a plaque recognising the numerous contributors was unveiled in front of more than 100 guests.

Mr Madeiros said achieving the goal was a “tremendous achievement particularly given the economic challenges the Island has faced over the last five years.”

“We are humbled by, and appreciative of, the confidence our donors had in MSA,” he said. “Mere words cannot express our gratitude so hopefully the commemorative plaque, which was unveiled on Friday evening, is a further demonstration of our sincere thanks to their generosity.

“Our campaign's success, in addition to our generous donors, was also as a result of those individuals who organised and those who solicited. Hundreds of hours of time and talent were invested by members of the MSA family who saw the need, and were prepared to actively participate in achieving our goal.”

I would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank them for their love of MSA and their willingness to work for its betterment.”
