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 wish to extend my thanks and gratitude to the parents, students and UCC teachers who collaborated in last weekend’s basketball and hockey tournaments here on campus. Parents, I am particularly grateful to you for your willingness to billet young people from our partner schools and ensure that their time here in Toronto was a safe and positive experience. On behalf of the College, our Athletics department, Nigel White and all of our coaches, I wish to acknowledge your sincere efforts to ensure that someone else’s child is safe, well cared for and feels comfortable away from home. It is no small commitment.

The coming school days include a morning focus day, Lunar New Year, Winterfest, Middle Year report cards, and the first of our parent coffee series, starting with our Y3 parents. We are piloting a new format during which visiting parents will have the opportunity to visit a weekly assembly before chatting casually with Sam McKinney or myself, either in our new refurbished Parkin Learning Community or in the Arena Lounge. Year 3 families, please click on this link to sign up for coffee with us on Jan. 30. 

In collaboration,

Tanya Sweeney
Head of the Preparatory School
