Annual Events


Every year, Trafalgar hosts numerous events for its community of students, parents, and alumnae. Here are just a few to look forward to:


Mother and Daughter Barbecue – September 27, 2018

Held immediately following the annual Girls for the Cure Walk, Trafalgar girls join their mothers or other guest of their choice, for an afternoon of activities, food, and laughter. The event is usually held in the school’s urban garden.


Trafalgar-Ross Lecture – October 19, 2018

One of the school’s most celebrated activities linking past and present is the Trafalgar-Ross Lecture. Outstanding Canadians such as Maureen Forrester, Marc Garneau, David Suzuki and Adele Wiseman are invited each year to address the school during the month of October.

Old Girls’ Homecoming and Reunion – October 19-20, 2018

Alumnae of all generations, and from across the globe come back to Trafalgar in October for Homecoming.

Father and Daughter Breakfast – November 14, 2018

Each year, Trafalgar students, along with their fathers or other significant role models, are invited to attend a formal breakfast at the school. The breakfast always features a talk given by someone of interest to this diverse audience.

Spring Fundraiser – Evening in the City, May 24, 2018

Our annual fundraiser is one of the most anticipated and well-attended events of the year. Thanks to the participation of a devoted community, and of sponsors and donors, the evening is always a success.
