Tomorrow is Winterfest, the winter version of Association Day. Just about every school team will host a home game, so please check with your son for game details and start times (also available at the Go Blues website). The highlight games are varsity basketball and varsity hockey, while fans will be fueled by food trucks and “Go Blues” energy. If you can make it, why not come out and support the players and coaches.

Please note the following major events for this term, and read Heads Up for details and updates as each event approaches:

Thursday, Feb. 2 and Friday, Feb. 3: Student-led conferences
Tuesday, Feb. 7: Year 1 boys will participate in a full-day workshop at Branksome Hall called Collaboration Day. Year 2 boys will attend the World Affairs Conference hosted at UCC. Details on these programs will be communicated soon.
