Welcome back!

All students who have attended St. Margaret’s School are an SMS Alumna. Our alumnae network consists of many interesting and inspiring women. Their studies, careers and other adventures have taken them around the globe, but their journeys all started right here at St. Margaret’s School.

Nominate an SMS graduate for a Service with Love Award

“Service with Love” has been the SMS motto since our founding in 1908. This simple phr ase captures the commitment to giving back to the community that is a core value of the SMS educational experience.

Women who have been educated at SMS understand the importance of giving back to the community to express love and gratitude for the gift of being here, for all that life has given to each of us, and for being able to serve others. Now, as we celebrate our 110th anniversary, SMS commemorates our commitment to “Service with Love” by launching a new Alumnae Award.

We invite you to nominate that individual or to selfnominate for a Service with Love Alumnae Award. Please note that these awards are for Alumnae only and may not be presented to:

  • Current Board members
  • Members of the Alumnae Association Executive
  • Current faculty or staff

How to Nominate

  1. Nominations are open from the first business day after Labour Day through to mid-April each year.
  2. Nominations will be subject to review by the SMS Department of External Relations only to ensure they are eligible and meet the criteria.
  3. The recognition form should demonstrate the worthiness of the candidate, and include all relevant information.

Submit the recognition form online by filling out the nomination form and sending it to Janine Cowie at: jcowie@stmarg.ca
