The annual Festive Marketplace on Friday, Dec. 1 is the highlight of the holiday season at UCC, with vendors from all over the Toronto area. It’s a one-stop place for most, if not all, of your holiday shopping needs. The silent auction is a terrific opportunity to bid on a wide range of fabulous goods and services. Great deals can be secured here for the conscientious bidder. Please mark your calendars and come out to support the Parents’ Organization, whose volunteers have worked very hard to host this fabulous event. See you at Festive.

The annual Festival of Carols and Christmas Music is this Sunday. The student and faculty performers under the leadership of our music faculty have been rehearsing diligently. Please come out and enjoy the music and songs of the season.

The make-up opportunity for boys who missed their scheduled Year 8 and Year 9 photo sessions is Tuesday, Dec. 5 from 10 a.m. to noon in the mezzanine of the Hewitt Athletic Centre overlooking the Lett Gym. First dress is required.

College holidays, as noted in the Upper School calendar, are generous. Please be sure your travel plans for all school breaks honour scheduled class time and assessments. Although there are no exams in December for Intermediate Division boys, the final day of classes and locker clean-out is Wednesday, Dec. 20, when classes end at 3:30 p.m.

Thanks for reading.
