QMS Gala

2024 QMS Gala

We are excited to announce the return of our QMS Gala, which is planned for Saturday, February 24, 2024.

Funds from this year’s Gala will make a profound difference for our students in our ongoing efforts to build strong minds and bodies through physical fitness and movement.

We are revitalizing and expanding conditioning spaces in Founders’ Hall to ensure that as our student population increases, they will continue to have access to outstanding fitness and conditioning equipment and coaching. With an even stronger focus on the health and wellness of our students, more is being planned!

Alongside the renewed cardio and weights fitness area, we will be rejuvenating our campus chip trail which will incorporate native plant species for use by students of all ages, and we are currently researching additional fitness structures near the The Learning Centre.

We’re very excited about the future of athletics at QMS, and the opportunities that arise for our students when they have strong minds and bodies.


2024 Gala Sponsors

We are incredibly grateful to the generosity of our event sponsors who have provided financial support for this year’s event!

Special thank you to our QMS Board of Governors for sponsoring our Champagne Reception and our Parents’ Association for sponsoring our Safe Ride Home Program.
