Heads Up

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

Message from Tanya Sweeney

Dear Prep families,

Thank you for your ongoing support and collaboration as we continue to work hard each day to offer a safe learning environment on campus and an engaging online experience for those learning at home. 

Thank you for a record response to our recent survey! We appreciate your thoughts and comments and will share the data with you in upcoming Heads Up articles as we make ongoing improvements to our programs and activities.

After a spell of incredible fall weather, the rains are here. As we are spending as much time outdoors as possible, and our Norval programming is held outdoors in unpleasant but manageable weather, please ensure your child comes prepared to enjoy the outdoors. Should your student be unprepared, we will loan boots and coats with the hope that families will clean and sanitize them before returning them. They will come home to you in specially labelled bags. 

Our Assistant Heads, David Girard (Primary) and Gareth Evans (Middle) are working with the faculty to offer a safe and outdoor Halloween trick-or-treat experience for our younger cohorts. Form Advisers will ensure some fun activities on Friday, October 30. Further information is in this edition of Heads Up.

We are heading into week 6 of full school programming—here’s to a healthy week ahead!
