• building and maintaining excellent educational facilities

• providing greater flexibility and independence for the School through endowments

The Development Team also includes Alumni Relations, led by the Executive Officer of the OIGA Geoff Brown, Alumni Coordinator, Mirella Busso-Lee and Development Administrator, Linda Paltoglou.
