Wednesday, 6 June 2018


You are invited to celebrate your 70th birthday year with your “old” high school classmates.
A scary thought but it has been 53 years since we were age 17 and in Grade 11 at Mac High.
We have a lot of catching up to do!

If you are in or near Montreal or the West Island, or if you can get there, please join us!
MAC HIGH Class of ’65 Get-Together and 70th Birthday Bash for all of us.
Evening of Wednesday, June 6th, 2018.

Exact time and location to be determined and notified closer to the event.
(There could be a nominal fee if numbers attending require a rental
facility or food but we will keep costs, if any, to a minimum.)

If you are interested, please RSVP so we can contact you with details as we get a sense of numbers.
RSVP to: Class of ‘65  -  70th Birthday Bash

Pass this onto anyone you are in contact with from Mac High’s Class of 1965.

The more the merrier!

MHSAA Leadership Award Winner - 2016-17

This year, following nominations from teachers and school staff, Brandon Cameron was chosen as the 2016-17 MHSAA Leadership Award Winner. This annual award is given to a student who not only demonstrates aptitude in respect to their studies, but who gets involved in helping peers, as well as performs community outreach.

Brandon is an excellent example of what we believe is a well balanced student and participated in many activities outside the classroom that makes him deserving of this honour such as; peer tutoring, fundraising for and participation in a humanitarian trip to India, the music program, as well as participation in the annual Christmas food drives that the school puts on.

Thanks go out to current teachers Ted Duckworth (’94) shown in the photo presenting the award to Brandon, and Lisa Brown (’94) for taking the photo in the absence of our President (Jeff Taylor) and Vice-President (Chris Thomson), who were sadly not able to attend the event this year. Our very own Vivian Bruce also deserves a big thank you for preparing the nice package our winner gets to bring home, which is always a nice treat.

The MHSAA would like to take this opportunity to once again congratulate Brandon as the recipient of our coveted award and bursary, as well as to wish him luck as he pursues his studies at John Abbott in Computer Science.

Good luck and best wishes from the MHSAA Brandon!! Don’t be a stranger!!

Year in Review

This past year was a busy one; we awarded our annual MHSAA Leadership Award to a deserving graduate, partially funded the purchase of a new visual art display unit, attended the annual Remembrance Day ceremony, and more recently, at the request of a Mac Alumnus, rectified an omission on the Duces Athletici plaque.  Our Facebook page has also been kept up-to-date and the MHSAA can now be found on Twitter and Instagram.
2016-17 promises to be just as busy and exciting
