2021–22 Letter to Our Readers

“Torch” Magazine Goes Digital

Dear Readers,

Welcome to the first fully digital issue of Torch magazine!

In recent years, the focus on instilling the skills and tools needed to succeed in an ever-changing world has become more important than ever. As a leading independent school in Canada, it’s essential that Havergal College continues to grow and adapt to emerging trends and realities, too. This includes creating content that is more accessible to readers, reducing our overall environmental impact and reaching global audiences.

Torch magazine is published annually. The goal of this issue is to introduce our readers to a new way of engaging with Torch content. As you check out the pages of this web-based magazine, enjoy all the new interactive content: photos, videos and slideshows of student art in our “Student Life” section; animated graphics throughout; links to other resources; and much more.

In this issue, learn about Havergal’s Portrait of a Graduate pedagogy in the “Message from our Heads of Schools“; discover the innovative learning experiences developed by the HC-X in support of skills development in our Feature Story “The Leaders of Tomorrow”; and read about our School Captain Marley Melbourne’s journey from Kindergarten to Grade 12.

Your feedback is important to us. Please share your comments with us at communications@havergal.on.ca.

We hope you liked this new digital experience as much as we enjoyed creating it. Happy reading!

Havergal’s Communications & Marketing Team
