A message from the Shore Foundation President

To uphold our integrity and to ensure our programmes and events are in-line with our mission, we constantly reflect on our primary role, this being to assist the School to achieve its vision to be the leading comprehensive school in Australia.

It is this vision that drives our commitment to the following programmes and events: Capital Campaign 'Our Heritage, Our Future', Parent Voluntary Donation Programme, Headmaster's Scholarship and Bursary Programme, Bequest Programme, Icebreaker, All Sports Lunch (biennial) and the Garden Party (biennial).

We are very grateful to all our donors and supporters for allowing us to make 2018 our most profitable fundraising year to date, with total income raised being $9.6 million - almost $5M from donations and the rest as dividend income. 

A major focus for the Foundation is the Capital Campaign, 'Our Heritage, Our Future', supporting the development of the Shore Physical Education Centre.  This centre is the largest building project in the history of the School and we are delighted with the support our fundraising endeavours have received to date.  Construction is well underway and it is exciting to see the new building take shape. 

In 2019 we look forward to working in partnership with the Shore community to achieve the best possible outcomes for all students.
