Macdonald House is named in honour of the Reverend Dr. D. Bruce Macdonald, Headmaster of St. Andrew’s College from 1900-1935, and Chairman of the Board of Governors from 1937-1941. At one time, Macdonald House was a separate Middle School entity with its own dining room and classrooms for students from grades 4-9. In the early 1960s, it became simply a residence for grades 7-9 boarders, while today it is a residence for boys from grades 5-9 along with House Captains (grade 11) and Heads of House (grade 12). David Galajda is the ninth Housemaster of Macdonald House and serves as the Director of Residential Life. Assistant Housemasters include Mr. Paul Totera and Mr. Jeff Laforge. Junior Assistant Housemaster is Kyle Fraser-Shoemaker. Macdonald House also has two Resident Dons, and can accommodate up to 80 students.
