Message from Derek Poon, Head, Intermediate Division

derekUpcoming Intermediate Division dates:

Monday, Nov. 27: First Dress; period one begins at 8:30 a.m.; principal’s assembly at 9:55 a.m., Laidlaw Hall,
Friday, Dec. 1: Festive Marketplace, Hewitt Athletic Centre, 8:30 a.m.–5 p.m.
Sunday, Dec 3: Festival of Carols, Laidlaw Hall, 4 p.m.–5:30 p.m.

The make-up opportunity for boys who missed their scheduled Y8 and Y9 photo sessions is Tuesday, Dec 5, from 10–12 p.m. in the mezzanine of the Hewitt Athletic Centre overlooking the gum. Any boys who missed having their photos taken can do so during these times. (They’ll all be emailed.) Photos are available for purchase via direct mail communication to each family from CanGrad Studios.

The annual Festive Marketplace on Friday, Dec. 1, is the highlight of the holiday season at UCC, with vendors from all over the Toronto area. It’s a one-stop place for most, if not all your holiday shopping needs. The silent auction is a terrific opportunity to bid on a wide range of fabulous goods and services. Great deals can be secured here for the conscientious bidder. To kick things off this year, the PO/PPO are hosting a cocktail party called Festive After Dark the night before, on Thursday, Nov. 30. Tickets can be purchased through any PO/PPO member. Please mark your calendars and come out to support the PO/PPO, whose volunteers have worked very hard to host these fabulous events. See you at Festive!

The annual Festival of Carols and Christmas Music is Sunday, December 3, from 4-5:30 p.m. The student and faculty performers under the leadership of our music faculty have been rehearsing diligently. Please come out and enjoy the music and songs of the season.

College holidays, as noted in the Upper School calendar, are generous. Please be sure your travel plans for all school breaks honour scheduled class time and assessments. Although there are no exams in December for iDiv boys, the final day of classes and locker cleanout is Wednesday, Dec. 20, when classes end at 3:30 p.m.

Thanks for reading.
