This year, we welcomed Anne-Marie Kee as Head of School and Foundation, hosted two student-led conferences, won historic CISAA gold medals, embarked on a new strategic planning process, experienced a moving and thought-provoking Dance Showcase, and so much more.
This year's Closing ceremonies marked the graduation day for the Class of 2018, and the completion of Anne-Marie Kee's first year as Head of School and Foundation. We were delighted to welcome special guest, alumnus Duncan McCue '88, to present the keynote address.
Congratulations to the Class of 2018 on their tremendous success with post-secondary destinations! This year's class has secured outstanding places throughout North America and Europe, at some of the world's top universities!
Each year, Regatta Day is an event that the entire community looks forward to. It combines the best aspects of camp – camaraderie and competition, water and fun – and is an excellent opportunity to celebrate sunny, warm days and our beautiful campus. This year, the excitement was greater than ever as we anticipated the re-opening of our newly enhanced waterfront!
Grade 11 dance, drama, music, and visual arts students presented their integrated creative projects. Gallery in The Grove has continued, and created, great conversations about social issues including these performance and art pieces about body image, bipolar disorder, poverty and more.
Dance, like all of the arts, can entertain, tell stories, express emotions, encourage reflection and offer different perspectives. Dance can also reflect aspects of society and raise awareness about important social issues. Some of this year's dances explored the issues of domestic violence and sexual harassment.

Read on to see more highlights from the winter co-curricular season.
After two and a half months of hard work, LCS presented the classic Broadway musical Damn Yankees at the end of November.
