Welcome to Our New McTavish!

Thanks to the incredible generosity of our Campbell Alumni, we now have a fantastic new McTavish mascot for our school. In addition to an on-going scholarship each year, this same group supplied us with our first McTavish in 2003 through funds raised at Campbell Collegiate’s 25th Year Reunion. Our original McTavish has been a well-loved star at so many sporting events and other school activities for the past 13 years. Alumni Barb Church and Sandra LaClaire (both class of ’71), knew that it might be time for a new replacement for our original McTavish. Carefully designed by a group of dedicated S.L.C. students, the new McTavish took shape over a number of months and was ultimately created in Toronto by Loonie Times. We recently gave wonderful old McTavish a sentimental, dignified send-off in front of all our students and, at the same time, introduced the spectacular new McTavish to the school. He will be with us now for many years to come and will show everyone our proud Tartan spirit. Thank you Campbell Alumni! Your generosity means so much to every one of us at Campbell.

What follows is a letter to the students of Campbell written by Barb Church and Sandra LaClaire on behalf of all Campbell Alumni:

 

Thoughts for the Students of Campbell Collegiate from Barb Church and Sandra LaClaire (Class of ‘71)

You see before you two women. A little older and believe me much wiser. We were you! We see you – early in your journey of life – just like we were. School is hard and so is growing up. We remember.
McTavish is a gift from the thousands of Campbell students who have come before you.
Remember to laugh and to stay balanced.
Remember to be kind.
