A Special Fundraiser: Bringing it all back to Island Pacific School

Emmett’s journey at Island Pacific School was the catalyst to him finding his passion through photography and videography. The support he received from his teachers, parents and peers was an important part of his story.

At Island Pacific School, the journey each student has is unique. Through the middle years program, students are equipped and inspired to cultivate their humanity. Emmett’s story is just one of so many incredible stories that is shared by our alumni after they graduate from Island Pacific School. This is why we believe the experience and education students receive at Island Pacific School sets the foundation for the rest of their lives.

Join us for an evening of fun and support our Student Bursary Program!
