A great teacher is many things: a catalyst, a counsellor, a mentor, and sometimes all three. These teachers make a profound impact on our lives.

So it’s no surprise that for more than a hundred years, we’ve heard many stories from our students, parents and alumni about the teachers and staff that have made a big difference.

If a teacher or other staff member at SMUS - past or present - has made a big difference in your life, you may recognize them by making a gift to the Annual Appeal in their honour.

How to make a tribute gift

You may make a gift to the Annual Appeal recognizing a teacher or member of staff through the online donation form. Your gift will be directed to the Annual Appeal. After selecting the Tribute Giving option you will also be asked to provide:

  • The name of the person you are recognizing. They can be a past or present member of staff.
  • Your personal message to the member of staff (optional).

You will also be asked if you would like your tribute to be made anonymously.Dream Big Tribute Giving Card

What happens next?

A teacher or staff member who has been recognized by a Tribute Gift will receive a card with your personal message and your name (unless you choose to give anonymously). They will also receive recognition in school publications and on these webpages.
