Don’t miss the course information evening for parents of boys currently in Y1 and entering Y2 in September. Unlike the previous evenings for the older grades, this event is for parents of Y1 boys so your sons need not attend. See details in this issue of Heads Up.

Winterfest is next Friday and is the biggest athletic event in the winter term. Just about every team will host an opponent with highlight varsity games in basketball and hockey as our marquee events. Please consult the athletics calendar or ask your sons about game times and locations. To continue keeping school spirit strong, the Blue Army generals will generate plenty of energy next Thursday and Friday, culminating with a pep rally in Laidlaw Hall at 3 p.m. on Friday to kick things into high gear. Go Blues!

On Tuesday, Feb. 2, Y1 boys will participate in a full day workshop at Branksome Hall called Integrative Thinking (aka iThink) and Y2 boys will attend the World Affairs Conference hosted here at UCC. Details on these mandatory programs will be given to your sons and published in Heads Up soon.

Thanks for reading.
