Heads Up

Welcome to Heads Up, your one-stop source for news about your son’s upcoming activities and events.

Message from Derek Poon, Intermediate Division Head

Upcoming Intermediate Division dates:

Monday, May 14: period one starts at 8:30 a.m., MADD assembly at 9:55 a.m.
Friday, May 18: Afternoon focus schedule; early dismissal at 1:15 p.m. for Victoria Day long weekend

Exams for Year 12 boys continue next week and run until Friday, May 18. Boys below this grade level are asked to be quiet in hallways and rooms in the vicinity of examination locations.

Our athletic teams play their final games of the regular season next week and will hopefully position themselves advantageously in the playoffs. When we return after the long weekend, most teams will likely be in elimination style competition, so please get out and support the teams and their coaches as they compete for championships. Go Blues!

The upcoming Victoria Day long weekend is an annual marker in the school calendar that signals the approach of the June final exams. Although this weekend often serves to establish the presence of spring, the start of the growing season for plants outdoors and the coming of summer, it’s also a nice reprieve for the boys before the last push to finish the academic year.

While there ought to be time for fun and relaxation, there also needs to be time set aside for exam preparations. Please read the accompanying piece from the Centre For Learning on how the boys continue to be prepared for the June exams.

Thank you for reading.
