Heads Up

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

Message from Andrew Turner, residential life director

Andrew Turner photoIn this edition of Heads Up we’re celebrating the outstanding accomplishments of three boarders.

Clayton Jeffrey was named most valuable player of the varsity football team. His effort on the field helped secure a come-from-behind Conference of Independent Schools Athletic Association (CISAA) football championship versus Trinity College School.

Kal Shaw was equally important in helping secure a CISAA soccer championship in a final against St. Michael’s College School. On route to the championship, he eclipsed the UCC record for goal-scoring in one season.

Daniel Reid was a member of the UCC delegation that attended the Secondary Schools Model United Nations Symposium at McGill University over the November long weekend. UCC claimed the award for the best large delegation, which is equivalent to first place overall. On a personal note, Reid won a “gavel” for top performance in his individual simulation.

All three of these boys have much to be proud of, but they’re not the only ones to record “personal bests” over the course of the fall co-curricular program. Many boys tried activities they had never experienced, and all of them deserve a special mention for stepping outside their comfort zone to try something new.

Lastly, we would be remiss not to mention the unbelievable support network in place to help boys win MVP awards, first place gavels and personal bests. The Wernham & West Centre for Learning and the UCC Health Centre are key components to the success of all boarders. I hope you enjoy the articles outlining exam preparation workshops and the new partnership being developed to help our Health Centre coordinate the best return to learn protocol for boys that suffer concussions.
