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

Message from Andrew Turner, director of residential life

Andrew Turner photoIt’s hard to believe that September has come and gone; with October upon us, we’re officially into the fall season and new boarders are becoming more familiar with the school routine. The senior house advisers are pleased with the way new and veteran students are supporting their roommates; seniors have their own room, but while facilitating an active peer tutor initiative, they’re welcoming students that require academic support.

I’ve no doubt that some new and veteran students are communicating home about early academic challenges. We expect there to be gaps of knowledge for new students. Parents should not hesitate to communicate with house advisers if they’re hearing about results that aren’t consistent with past performance. We’ve a strong support system in place; house advisers and the Centre for Learning staff will be partnering with your son as he makes his way through October.
