Giving to Craighead
Every gift counts. Gifts add a stepping stone into the future, ensuring our school can provide the very best educational opportunities within the very best learning and living environments for its students.
The spirit of giving, committed involvement and contribution from our Old Girls, Parents’ and Friends’ Association, and families have been an integral force of Craighead for many years. Together they raise funds for much needed projects in different areas of the school. Everyone at Craighead is and has been extremely grateful to all those over the years who have supported the varied fundraisers.
We need to continue with this tradition of benevolence from our Craighead family. In order to see larger projects through to fruition, there will be a need to reach out to the wider community for their generosity and participation.
We have a three stage building project. Stage One – the new Boarding wing was completed in 2015, Stage two – a new Gymnasium and associated facilities was completed in May of 2018, so now we are at Stage three – the restoration of our beautiful Shand House.
The SOS campaign (Save our Shand) began a couple of years ago and we were thrilled with the response. Now with the Gymnasium project complete it is time to focus back on Shand and achieve a design that will be future proofed whilst bringing it back to its former beauty. The Historic Places Trust came to visit last year and were impressed with the restoration plans. More information will be in the Old Girls magazine produced in March 2019.

However, the Craighead Diocesan Development Campaign offers the opportunity for your generosity to receive on-going recognition also. You may wish to recognise a family member, yourself, or any individual of your choosing or even an organisation. There may be a particular project that you wish your gift to be linked to. We welcome the opportunity to acknowledge gifts that positively shape the future of the school. Naming rights within the school are available for that special recognition, they have an enduring appeal, for example; accommodation wings, rooms in the boarding house or school, foyers etc If you would like to discuss the gift you/your company are considering or how else you could support Craighead, please contact: Mrs Phillipa Guerin – Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The new Gymnasium, retrofitted Library, Offices, Field, Turf and modern teaching and learning spaces was officially opened by Mr Gary Rooney on 11 May 2018. This wonderful new complex will give future generations of Craighead Students the spaces that have long been needed. In addition to being for the School, the community is also able to hire our facilities.
We continue to be very grateful to Mr Gary Rooney, other large Donors, the combined Boards and the school community for believing such a huge project was possible.
Since May, the entire complex has been in operation and the feedback from students, staff and the community is wonderful.
These are a few photos of the finished product.
