The Association is affiliated to St. Joseph High School – Guyana –, the Board of Governors and the other St. Joseph Alumni Chapters.
It was formed in the summer of 1988 by a few past students, who reside in Ontario, Canada.
Its primary objective is to support the student body and the school in Georgetown, Guyana. Fundraising events are our main sources in order to achieve this goal / these goals.
Our activities and events are presented independently and sometimes in collaboration with other alumni associations. Joint events are the Last Lap Lime (LLL), an annual family occasion and Fall / Spring brunches. The former is completed in conjunction with the Alumni of Queen’s College and Bishop’s High School. ST. Stanislaus College and St. Rose’s High School had shared this event with us. The latter was shared with Tutorial High School.
Funds are used to purchase books, equipment and computers to enhance the learning facilities of students, grant bursaries as per student performance and to improve the physical condition of the School. Being affiliated to the Guyana Chapter and the Board, we are advised of the needs and requirements.
Our association has been assisting our Alma Mater for thirty plus (30+) years; for that period we have contributed approximately $100,000 Canadian dollars financially and by other means. Our largest donation was directed to the School grounds project, which was completed in 2014.
Executive Meetings are held seven to eight (7 –8) times per year and annually for general membership. However Executive Meetings are also open to members of the Alumni association.
Membership to the Chapter is afforded to former students, who reside in Ontario and its environs. Their attendance at St. Joseph in Guyana may span decades, as evidenced by many of its current members and Executive.
Our Chapter is committed to the directive for supporting our Alma Mater and its students in Guyana and especially to provide the means for improvement of Student achievement.
