Association Day Prep schedule

UCC will celebrate its 39th Association Day on Saturday, Sept. 29, so bring your families and reunite and reconnect with Old Boys, parents, teachers and friends.

Prep boys are asked to wear their house colours. The school will host a new parent breakfast starting at 7:30 a.m. in the Prep School’s Weston Hall. Everyone is also welcome to drop by the Prep Café so you don’t have to bother stopping at your local coffee shop in the morning. It will be located on the north side of the Eaton Building and open for business at 8:00 a.m. Bienvenue à tout le monde.

Families are welcome to take a guided tour of the Prep labs and learning garden starting at 8:30am. Come for a relaxing stroll or guided tour and enjoy the sights and smells of seasonal herbs, greens and vegetables. Enjoy the harvest from the learning garden at the fresh herbs and vegetables sale on the avenue from 9:30 am to 2:00 pm or until the produce is all sold.

Soccerfest is a longstanding tradition at the Prep where the boys play soccer for their colour house against other houses. It is a fun tournament where participation is stongly encouraged. Boys wear their colour house colours to earn valuable colour house points.  All boys from Year 4 – 7 should wear cleats and shin pads.

Boys in Senior Kindergarten to Year 4 will meet in their classrooms at 8:30 a.m.

SK to Year 2 boys will be led directly to their assigned fields to participate in Soccerfest at 8:55 a.m. These boys won’t participate in the parade. Boys in Year 3 and 4 will leave their classroom at 8:35 a.m. and meet the Year  5, 6 and 7 boys on the avenue in front of the arena at 8:45 a.m for the parade. Opening ceremonies at the clocktower will commence at 8:55 a.m. and Soccerfest will officially begin at 9:10 a.m.

The Soccerfest game locations  (map of field locations) are:

  • SK to Year 2 on Prep West
  • Year 3 and 4 on Prep East
  • Year 5, 6 and 7 on Lords Fields
  • Soccerfest will be finished by 10:25 a.m. Boys in SK to Year 4 will then need to follow their form teacher back to their classrooms, where they’ll be dismissed promptly to enjoy the rest of A-Day with their families. Boys in Year 5 to 7 will be dismissed directly from Soccerfest to enjoy the rest of the day with their families.

Families are invited to cheer on the UCC Blues at any of the sporting events.
