Heads Up

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

Message from Tanya Sweeney, Head, Preparatory School

Dear Prep families,

I spent last week at an IB conference in Prague with colleagues from across the school who support our Middle Years Programme. It was a rigorous and meaningful experience for all. We were able to connect with other educators, largely from international schools in Europe, and we plan to continue our conversations. Working with other schools offers wonderful collaborative opportunities for us.

It’s been a busy few weeks leading up to our March Break, with our robust winter sports schedule, report cards, student-led parent-teacher conferences, and development of the MYP Programme. Plans are also well underway for our 2019-20 academic year. In the midst of these activities, I’m enjoying continuing to meet parents and gaining a deep understanding of the programs we offer at the Prep.

Please reach out to me if you would like to meet, have a book to recommend, or feel that there might be something you could uniquely offer our boys. Students benefit enormously from hearing from you, especially if your skills, interests or profession connect meaningfully with one of their projects.

Highlights of the Week Ahead:

  • Year 7 trip to Quebec
  • PO Speaker Series Event Monday Evening
  • 5M at Norval Monday to Wednesday
  • Year 6 French Field Trip Tuesday
  • Used Uniform Sale Monday and Tuesday
  • Classes end Thursday 3:30 p.m.

Please see the Prep School 2018-19 Google Calendar or speak to the leaders of these events for further information.

With my regards,

Tanya Sweeney
Head of the Preparatory School
