Community

TOGA

More than 2000 alumnae make up the worldwide community of proud Trafalgar graduates. While diverse, they share a love for their school, a commitment to its future, and a strong connection to other Traf women.

The Trafalgar Old Girls’ Association (TOGA) helps to keep the school-alumnae connection strong and vital. It's mission is to:

  • Foster a spirit of loyalty and community among the graduates and former students of Trafalgar School for Girls

  • Bring about a united and concentrated action in promoting the welfare of the School

A Message from TOGA's Co-Presidents

Our years at Trafalgar have provided us with many shared memories; writing the Donald House play together during our graduating year in 1996 stands out for both of us!  
 
Today, we find ourselves working together again to help the TOGA community stay connected and engaged with the plans for the new CoLab partnership with McGill's Faculty of Education, including the move that lies ahead.
 
We both consider it a privilege to be TOGA Co-Presidents. Our goal is for all of us to Be Connected, both at home and abroad. Trafalgar alumnae live in many different countries and work in various fields. What all of us have in common is the strong education that we received during our years at Trafalgar School for Girls. Friends, classmates, teachers and events all contribute to the individual stories that each of us tells today.  
 
TOGA remains committed to documenting both the history of the school and its former students as well.  This is where you come in.  We want you to stay in touch and don’t miss out on all the planned activities that will be taking place.  
 
With many travel restrictions lifted, we are making plans to visit many TOGA chapters this 2022/2023 school year, across Canada & abroad, while also aiming to host many more in-school events to encourage Old Girls to visit the Simpson building and share their fond memories of their time at Trafalgar.  
 
Please be sure to keep your contact information current or follow us on Instagram.  Go a step further and tag us in a Traf memory - #TrafProud #TrafMemories.  Better yet, nominate a Traf Grad to be featured in our #ThatsATrafGrad monthly feature.  
 
You can also connect with us by email togapresident@trafalgar.qc.ca.  Tell us your updates, share a memory or tell us where we can come to visit you.  
 
And don’t forget that we are always looking for more volunteers - Traf Ambassadors who may want to give a little of their time to help coordinate an upcoming event.
 
We could not be more proud to call ourselves Traf Old Girls and hope that you’ll join us this year in-person or virtually so we can hear some of the memories that make you proud to call yourself a Traf Grad.
 
Cheers,
 
-Caroline Blakely & Meghann Cundall, Class of 1996

    This year’s speaker, Kassandra Churcher, graduated from Trafalgar in 1995, following what she describes as “the best years of my life, because Traf provided a safe space for growing and learning.” Since graduating, she has been deeply involved in helping other women to “move through the world without fear.”
