Heads Up

Welcome to Heads Up, your one-stop source for news about your son’s upcoming activities and events.

Note these deadlines for course changes

Students are advised to consider their course choices very carefully during the
 course selection process and are strongly advised against making changes after the start of the school year unless absolutely necessary; such changes will
 potentially be disruptive to the student’s existing schedule and will necessitate getting caught up on missed work in the course into which they’re transferring.

Provided that class size, balance among sections and timetabling make a change possible, a student may transfer from one course to another prior to the beginning of the school year. Students wishing to change courses must have written permission from a parent or guardian and must provide a reason for their request. Once school has begun, students who still wish to change a course are permitted to do so; however, they may only do so during the first two cycles 
of classes. (Students in IB1 have until just prior to the Thanksgiving long weekend.)

Deadline to request a course change for students in Y1, Y2 and FY: 

Thursday, Sept. 25 at 4 p.m.

Deadline to request a course change for students in IB1:

Thursday, Oct. 9 at 4 p.m.

In order to request a course change, the student must complete a course change application form and have it signed by his parent or guardian. Forms are available in the student centre office. Completed forms should be brought back to the student centre office for academic review. (IDiv forms are to be submitted to Ms. Fulford and Senior Division forms to Ms. Berndsen.) Course change requests must have academic approval prior to processing. Please note that it’s College policy that students are not permitted to change courses or sections because of teacher preference.
