Since its founding in 1991 Queen’s College of Guyana Alumni Association Toronto Chapter (QCAAT) has contributed to Queen’s College in Guyana a total of approximately CAN$220,000 to assist the students and staff in various ways.

QCAAT’s primary objective is to provide assistance to the school to help maintain its standard of excellence for which it is renowned. ­ The upcoming Father’s Day Brunch to be held on Sunday June 9 is yet another of QCAAT’s events to raise funds to continue this assistance.

QCAAT’s major projects so far included upgrading the school’s library in 2011 (C$80,300) by providing laptop computers for use by both students and staff; replacing the then existing deficient and dysfunctional network with a modern, professionally designed, secure and robust one, along with funds for annual network maintenance.

— High Speed Wireless + Intercom System

Other contributions included the installation of a modern intercom system (C$17,500) to facilitate communication between the school’s principal and the classrooms and other areas of the school;
