Sursum Foundation

Together “Our past is our Future”

The Sursum Foundation is a Charitable Trust whereby donations are sought to create a capital fund which is never spent. Assistance to students and staff of our school would only be made from interest generated funds. Donations then are a gift for life; a legacy.

The Sursum Foundation is hoping to raise between $500,000-$1,000,000. In doing so, creating a village of givers. Donors may wish to remain anonymous or come to school and share their stories with current students. Official assistance to students and staff should begin in 2013, our 60th Anniversary year. The Sursum Foundation is fully supported by the Principal and the Board of Trustees.
