175th Anniversary Reunion

Close to 1,500 alumni came out the weekend of May 4-6, 2018, to reconnect with Lisgar!

The festivities got underway Friday with a variety night in the auditorium and a pub night in the gym.
On Saturday, there were school tours, decade rooms, an opportunity to meet former teachers, musical performances, and more – all followed by a dinner and dance at the Shaw Centre.
On Sunday, the tours and decade rooms continued and eleven new members were inducted into Lisgar’s Athletic Wall of Fame.
The reunion’s Friends of Lisgar campaign raised more than $146,000 for much-needed upgrades to Lisgar’s Alumni Auditorium.
