The Georgian Parents Guild

Welcome to the Georgian Parents Guild 2023-2024!

As a parent, you are a member and an integral part of our community. The Guild's main objective is to foster parent connections. 

We organize a wide range of events and initiatives throughout the year to promote these connections and strengthen the bonds between our Georgian families. 

Our calendar is filled with numerous exciting events. These include fundraising activities, creative and engaging social gatherings, coffee mornings, and collaborative projects in partnership with the school. Together, we raise funds to support capital improvements, provide financial aid bursaries and contribute to a wide range of school and chapel needs. 

From our annual Mistletoe Festivities, Cheese Sale and Parent Connection events, we believe in offering various opportunities for involvement. There are multiple ways in which you can contribute and participate at your own comfort level.

This year, we have an amazing group of Parent Convenors who have volunteered their time and skills to various events. On the Portal, you will find a list of these Convenor roles, a description along with their corresponding event dates. 

Please reach out to our Guild VP, Joelle Craig if you wish to be involved. In addition, Convenors will reach out when volunteers are required.

Keep an eye out at the bottom of the weekly Junior School and Friday Files emails to stay up to date on the Guild’s current events.

This is your RSGC Guild, so please feel free to reach out to me. We love hearing about new ideas and initiatives. After all, none of this would be possible without your support and involvement.

Thank you to this year’s Grade Parent Representatives. We wholeheartedly appreciate you. A list of them can be found on our Portal.

Here’s to an amazing year for our boys and to us, the parents. To quote a past Guild president: “We are a small school with a big heart.”

    Meet the Executive
    The Executive is made up of the President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Past President. We meet monthly to set agendas and discuss Guild initiatives, and prepare for our monthly meetings, to which all parents are invited.

    Anastasia, mom to Aris ‘23 and Billy ‘25, has been an active member of the Guild for the past five years and is honoured to be joining the Executive. When she isn’t volunteering in various organizations in the city, Anastasia is involved in the family property development company; locally and internationally, and runs a small culinary nutrition and wellness consulting business on the side. A Toronto native, Anastasia continues to live in Toronto’s west end with her husband John and the boys, but is finding ways to spend more time in Greece and Costa Rica.

    Joelle, mom to Aiden (Class of 2027) has been involved with The Guild’s Used Uniform Sales for the last couple of years and is thrilled to join the Executive team this year. RSGC has been an incredible place for our son to thrive & learn that it is an honour to help support the school community in a larger capacity. 
    Joelle is co-owner of an interdisciplinary design firm in Toronto with degrees in Architecture & Environmental Science from the University of Waterloo. Originally from Montreal, she now lives with her family & their golden retriever, Mango in the Trinity-Bellwoods neighbourhood. 

    Nicole is the mother to Wyatt Guy (Class of 2022), three daughters and a geriatric dog. A stay-at-home mum, Nicole is almost never actually at home. She likes exploring the city on foot, but spends an inordinate amount of time driving kids around. Nicole wishes that in another life she’ll come back as a teenage boy and get to go to RSGC.

    Meredith is mom to Owen (class of 2027), Sebastien (class of 2030) and Tabitha (class of 2025 - Lawrence Park Collegiate). Originally from Winnipeg (go Jets!), Meredith moved to Toronto back in the 1990s for law school. She has volunteered at her kids’ schools in various roles and, like Nicole, spends a lot of time driving them around and waiting for them or cheering from the crowd.

    Miranda is the chief laundry folder for Callum (Class of 2024), William (Class of 2026), Henry (Class of 2028) and Hamish (Class of 2030). She fell in love with RSGC the first time she visited the campus, and is grateful for the opportunity to support the school through the Guild. Born in the Bahamas, Miranda now lives a short walk north from the school with the boys, her husband, two dogs and her chickens.
  • Getting Involved

    The Georgian Parents Guild exists with and for the parents. Simply by being an RSGC parent, you are a member of the Guild. So parental involvement is key! We benefit from parents who volunteer to organize and support activities, and parents who attend and participate in activities.

    If you’d like to volunteer your time, look for announcements in the Friday File and through Class Parent communications. If you’d like to be more involved, please drop Anastasia Kanellopoulos a line.
