Few Southridge parents can say that they knew Alan Brown. Rick Mann, alumnus of the Class of 2004 and current parent, joined Southridge as a Grade 7 student in 1999. Interviewed by Mr. Brown himself, he has vivid memories of the formidable yet relatable and down-to-earth founding Headmaster.
Jaspreet 'Jas' Gill '02 is a proud Southridge alumnus, so it was not a surprise when he embraced the opportunity to re-join the Southridge community as a parent when his daughter started Kindergarten in 2016. For Jas and his wife Anneka, the sense of community, focus on character development, and outstanding education opportunities were all reasons they returned as parents. They were eager to embrace the opportunity to reconnect with the place that provided such a strong foundation during his youth.
Bursary and Scholarship Recipients
Brin O'Hare joined the Southridge community in the fall of 2002 as a Grade 8 student with the support of a financial bursary offered to her by the founding Head of School, Mr. Alan Brown. For the O'Hare family, the desire to attend Southridge was more than just an academic decision. They were excited at the prospect of service opportunities and community initiatives that they felt could benefit their young daughter.
Founding Head of School, Mr. Alan Brown believed in youth and embraced their idealism and willingness to be guided by the values of truth, tolerance, and respect. He influenced Southridge's culture so much that the spirit of who we are today can easily be traced to what he believed were the critical ingredients of a well-rounded and balanced education.
Cassia and her parents knew she was different from a young age. She thrived academically and joined in on every activity with more enthusiasm than most other children her age.
