Spectrum Community School Alumni Association was created in the Spring of 2014. A group of directors developed a constitution and a set of purposes which were registered and have been approved by the provincial government. Since then, application has been made to the Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA) to obtain charitable society status. We expect that approval in Spring 2015.
Below are the purposes of the Spectrum Alumni Association.
– to initiate projects which enhance the role of Spectrum in the community and support heritage efforts to maintain and share school history;
– to support and undertake class and school reunions and other milestone events which celebrate the school, its students, and the alumni;
– to communicate with Spectrum Alumni for the purposes of keeping them informed about the current activities of the school and providing a means for them to communicate with each other;
– to provide assistance to the school and its students through the granting of scholarships and bursaries and to support academic, fine arts, athletic, and vocational activities by offering the skills and expertise of alumni to enrich school programs; and
– to support fundraising activities and collect monies which generate tax receipts so that funds may be invested and spent for purposes beneficial to the school.
