Boarding Life & our Residential Life Curriculum
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. Today, it is a residence for boys from Grades 6-9 along with Grade 11 house captains and Grade 12 heads of house. David Galajda is the ninth Head of Macdonald House and serves as the Director of Residential Life. Assistant Heads of House include Paul Totera, Kyle Fraser-Shoemaker, and Ryan Turley. Macdonald House also has two Resident Dons and typically accommodates around 80 students.
