Principal’s Gala Dinner | A Night to Remember

Thank you to everyone who helped us celebrate our combined 35th anniversary of The McDonald College and 93rd anniversary of the Ann McDonald College of Dancing at our recent Principal’s Gala Dinner. We celebrated in style at the prestigious Aqua Luna waterfront with an evening of fine food, good company and wonderful entertainment. We were also in excellent company with our guest alumni speakers and performers, our school community, and our extended College community.

“We are a unique and proud young school that is committed to nurturing enquiring young minds who are passionate about performance.”

Maxine Kohler
