Jersey Day @MulgraveSchool on Thursday Supporting Humboldt Broncos #humboltstrong

On this Thursday, April 12, we encourage all Upper School students to wear a sports jersey and civvies in support of the Humboldt Broncos and families dealing with the Humboldt tragedy.

Students need to bring in a toonie to participate; all proceeds will go towards the Go Fund Me campaign supporting the Humboldt Broncos.

If you have any questions about the day please ask lead Sophie MB G9


Thank you to everyone that supported our March Spirit Week campaign for the unsung heroes of first responders and the White Helmets.

Apply for Student #Leadership 2018-2019

Hey G6-11s:

“Leadership is everybody’s business” and, once again, it’s that time of year to make leadership your business by applying for a major leadership opportunity in the Senior School next year. Students entering G7-12 next year who are interested in a major leadership role across the strands can now apply through the following Google forms:

  1. Mulgrave Senior School Student Leadership Common Application for the 2018-2019 school year
  2. Mulgrave Middle School Student Leadership Common Application for the 2018-2019 school year

For an overview of all leadership opportunities for next year, please click here for

  1. Senior School Leadership Overviews
  2. Middle School Leadership Overviews

Applications are due by Fri Apr 13, 2018 by 5pm.

Please note students can select two leadership options on the Google form application, but the general expectation is that a student should be engaged in no more than one major leadership opportunity. There are also many other kinds of leadership opportunities at Mulgrave and beyond in athletics, arts, service, outdoor education, co-curricular clubs and more. If what you see is not exactly what you’re interested in, please check out other opportunities shared in town halls, assemblies, newsletters, announcements, and via posts in TMC and SOGO.

IMPORTANT G12 LEADERSHIP NOTE: This year the Grade 12 leadership structure or “Prefect system” is under review. The only areas that next year’s G12s can apply for in this current application package are Athletics, Heads Up and Global Nomads. The updated G12 leadership opportunities will be shared soon via a separate application process. Please speak to Ms Nolan Wood if you have any questions.

If you have any questions about the process, please ask the faculty advisor for the team that you’re applying for or fire me an email.



#Orbis #PlanePullforSight Vancouver – #Volunteers Wanted!

Volunteers are needed on to help with the organization and support of the Orbis Canada signature “Plane Pull for Sight” fundraising event in Vancouver on Sunday, June 24, 2018 at the FedEx Ship Centre (3151 Aylmer Rd, Richmond, BC V7B 1L5). As well as the pull itself, there will be a whole host of fun activities both for the participants and their families, not to mention the highlight of the day – the Kids Pull!

The event supports Orbis’s worldwide efforts to end avoidable blindness. Student volunteers will help with managing and overseeing specific zones, registration, activities, food and refreshments and more.  This event is being coordinated by a Mulgrave alumnus Kelcy T.  If you are interested in volunteering, please let me know and I’ll get you connected.

What is Orbis?
Orbis is an international non-profit non-governmental organization dedicated to saving sight worldwide. Orbis programs focus on the prevention of blindness and the treatment of blinding eye diseases in developing countries. 80% of visual impairment can be avoided or cured. Help Orbis now to bring vision to millions of people in need! Read more about our Canadian doctors, nurses and biomedical engineers volunteering their time to save sight all over the world. Learn more about our Canadian VFs.

Why Pull a Plane?
Orbis is a non-profit with its roots firmly embedded within the aviation industry. The Plane Pull is a symbol of our Orbis Flying Eye Hospital, a fully equipped teaching hospital on board an MD-10 aircraft. On the outside, the plane is like most other planes, but inside, it’s like no other. Take a 3D Tour of the Flying Eye Hospital.

Can’t find a club you are interested in? Got a great idea for an Upper School Mulgrave club, service initiative, community activity, fundraiser, awareness campaign, or cause to support at Mulgrave and beyond? Make your pitch to the StartUp Forum!

The StartUp Forum replaces the Mulgrave Dragon’s Den (The Den) format from previous years. The forum is made up of a student-led panel drawn from a range of leadership teams and grades, facilitated by SAC (the Service Action Council). This team will review all new school, citizenship, service, social good or fundraising proposals by students and make decisions on whether or in what way the pitch moves forward with possible support, resources and opportunities. They also decide on the scope and impact on school.

Click here to access the application or fill it in below. If you have any questions about applying to the StartUp Forum, please contact Mr Wilson or Yuheng W G11.
