Dal Richards (Magee 1936) says ...

Come on let's Celebrate!

The Magee Centennial Celebration year is now upon us. Register and purchase your tickets today ... the Early Bird rates expire on January 31st. And oh yes ... here are some points to emphasize.

Memoir Book


Each Registrant will receive a copy of the Magee Secondary 2014 Centennial Memoir, a book everyone will want to have in their library. This full color, hard cover, labor of love has been produced by Doug Sturrock, retired Magee Teacher (PE Department Head, 1972 - 1998), and his team of dedicated researchers and writers.

The Memoir comprises over 275 pages and features:


  • A revised history of Hugh Magee, after whom the school is named
  • A timeline and summary of the school's history (1914-2013)
  • A section on the history of Kerrisdale
  • Lists of Graduates, Teachers, Principals/VP's with selected biographies
  • Lists of Valedictorians, Student Councils, and Grad Committees (1990-2014)
  • Stories and images of activities (1990-2014): Clubs, Fine and Performing Arts, Special Events, and Sports


A Supplement to the Memoir (covering Celebration Events) will be produced and distributed to Registrants following the Centennial. Guests and others may purchase the Memoir and Supplement separately at the Magee Open House on May 24th. The Memoir will be available for pickup at the Magee Open House on May 24th.


Draw Prizes


Registrants and Guests will all have a chance to win one of the following incredible Draw Prizes which have been generously sponsored by the respective companies:


  • Rocky Mountaineer Tour package valued at nearly $9,000
  • Fairmont Pacific Rim (Gold Floor) Hotel 2 night package


Flexible Registration Options


Visit our Registration and Tickets Page and choose the registration option (online or manual) which is right for you. If you choose online, you can make payment by PayPal, Credit Card, or cheque. If you choose manual, you can download and print a Registration Form, complete it manually, and mail it in with your cheque.


In both cases, please include your email address because that is where we will send your registration confirmation which includes a link to print "My Tickets". If you don't have an email address, we do have a work-around to send your tickets by mail but this is a last resort.

Registration Mechanics


We are using Constant Contact (EventSpot) and PayPal to manage registrations and payments. When registering online, please note the following mechanics:


From the "Registration & Tickets" page on our website, click on the online registration link which opens a Magee Centennial information page with Constant Contact (EventSpot).

Click on "Register Now" which opens a Registration Form. Fill in your information including your choice of paying by PayPal or Cheque. Click "Continue".

If you chose PayPal, this opens a PayPal window with two options: (a) Pay by PayPal or (b) Don't have a PayPal account. When you click on (b) Don't have a PayPal account, this opens a Credit Card window.

If you chose the Credit Card window, enter your Credit Card number (it will automatically be recognized as Visa, MasterCard, etc) and all other Credit Card information. Click "Pay Now".

This takes you to a payment confirmation page. Review the payment details and confirm the payment.

This takes you to a PayPal page inviting you to open a PayPal account. Click on "No Thanks". (Note: If you do not click on "No Thanks" your registration will not be completed and will be recorded as abandoned.)

This takes you to a Registration Confirmed page. Also, you will automatically receive a confirming email which includes a link to print "My Tickets". Click on this link and print your tickets.


When paying by cheque (online or manual), we will send you a confirming email when your cheque is received. This confirming email will contain a print "My Tickets" link. Click on this link and print your tickets.
