Welcome to the KES Highlander Fold! Providing a welcoming environment for our Students, Parents, Faculty, Alumni, and the greater KES Community is the foundation of our new KES Highlander ethos of “Welcome to the Fold.” A unique aspect of Highland Cattle is that they live in folds, not herds. Hence, "Welcome to the Fold!" Our goal at KES is to build an inclusive and accessible community for everyone. We recognize that becoming a fully accessible School is a journey of continuous improvement and as part of this year’s Annual Giving Campaign, we are starting phase one of our journey.

Integral to the overall KES experience is how well we facilitate movement on our Campus. Therefore, our first Annual Giving Campaign goal is to begin eliminating physical barriers through important campus improvements. Currently, some members of our community struggle to access the Hensley Memorial Chapel safely. To eliminate this physical barrier to the Chapel, we plan to build a ramp that will dovetail into the beautiful stonework of this historic 1877 building. Also, as part of Phase One of the KES accessibility plan, we will pave the Ted Canavan Athletic Centre parking area, allowing easier and safer, year-round access to Campus.

The second goal of our Annual Giving Campaign is to continue to ensure our School is accessible to every student who has the desire to receive a KES education regardless of their financial means. Financial Aid is always a priority at KES. One third of KES Students depend on our Financial Aid and Scholarship Programme every year. As enrolment continues to grow, so does our need for financial aid funding! Every time you give, you are making it possible for motivated students to bridge the gap between their finances and their educational goal of attending KES. Without donations from the KES Community, we must consider raising tuition fees each year which in turn makes KES less accessible to students who want to attend our School. 

These important Annual Giving priorities are our first steps in the process of becoming a more accessible School for everyone. Your gift to this year’s Welcome to the Fold! Annual Giving Campaign will have an immediate impact on the lives of KES Students.

THANK YOU!
