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,

Thank you for our continued collaboration. There was clear evidence as such last week, during our Lunar New Year activities on Thursday morning, supported by a large group of our enthusiastic UCC parents. It was also evident in your support of our UCC teams on Friday, during our annual Winterfest athletic competitions. I feel very grateful this week for our creative, communicative and supportive UCC community. You help us to be our best and to offer our best to all students at the College. 

The first of our Prep Discussion Series, a new initiative this year, will feature UCC parent and Toronto Police Services Detective Corey Jones. He will visit campus, as last year, to speak with our eldest Prep students about our legal system and which laws they should be aware of, as students become teenagers. This year, we are adding on to this experience by offering a casual discussion and Q/A session for any Prep parents, of any age of student, from 4-5pm on Wednesday February 12. Mr. Jones is a friendly UCC parent who in his role as Detective for TPS, is willing to share his knowledge and experiences that may be helpful for our UCC parents as we raise our sons to become young men. ASP Child Care costs will be absorbed by the Prep, and tea/coffee provided. Join us! 

Prep Discussion Series – 1st Session

We are currently planning future sessions of our Prep Discussion Series, and will make these public and invite your participation in the coming weeks and months. Upper School parents and faculty members are also welcome. 

Thank you to the Year 3 parents who joined us for coffee and a brief performance by students. We are now preparing for the Year 4 parent coffee on Thurs, Feb. 13. Please click on the Google form to register your interest!

Lastly, parents of students in Year 6 and 7 should have received their child’s report card yesterday-Wednesday, January 29, by email. Please contact Crystal Arruda in the main office with any concerns at carruda@ucc.on.ca or 416-488-1125 ext 4010.

In collaboration,

Tanya Sweeney
Head of the Preparatory School
