Theatre moves into the spotlight this week with the fall play Waiting For Godot. Please mark your calendars for the night that suits your schedule best and come out and support our theatre enthusiasts.

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 dutifully. Please come out and enjoy the music and songs of the season.

If your son missed the day that his grade was scheduled to have its photos taken, the last chance make-up date is Monday, Nov. 30 either at 1 p.m. or immediately after classes at 3:30 p.m. in the balcony of the Hewitt Athletic Centre. Proofs will be mailed home so that parents who wish to order prints may do so.

College holidays, as noted in the Upper School calendar, are generous. Please be sure that your travel plans for all school breaks honour scheduled class time and scheduled exams when applicable. Although there are no exams in December for iDiv boys, the final day of classes is Wednesday, Dec. 16 and classes end at 3:30 p.m.

Thanks for reading.
