The Walk for Homeless Youth for Year 8 students will take place on Tuesday, March 6 for the entire school day. This is an annual service learning event that helps boys better understand and temporarily experience the challenges of life on the street for youth in Toronto. Parents of Year 8 boys are reminded to return signed permission and waiver forms through their sons. Extra copies are available in the accompanying article on the Walk for Homeless Youth.

The Year 8 Norval trip is scheduled for the week of Monday, April 23 to Friday, April 27. In preparation for this outdoor adventure, there will be communication outlining the week, activities, paperwork, waivers and other important matters. This is a mandatory component in Year 8, so please mark your calendars. Look for more information in future editions of Heads Up. Please contact Norval Outdoor School director Bill Elgie or me if you have any questions.

Enjoy the Family/Founder’s Day long weekend.
