Heads Up

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

Prepare for Halloween at the Prep

Halloween is an exciting time for children. We hope that UCC families enjoy the evening in some capacity this year!

At school, we make plans believing the day should be safe, fun and productive.  The wearing of costumes should be age- and grade-appropriate, and include masking for Years 1–7. No large props or weaponry, please, as they prove challenging in a school context.

Students may wear their costume or casual orange and black clothes on the morning of Friday, Oct. 29. Please remind your child that in preparing their costumes this is not a competition, and that we would encourage them to make use of regular household materials to construct a costume with some flair and creativity. 

As this year we are not changing from dress uniform into PE uniform for PE or Games, please consider a costume that can be easily adapted for safe participation in athletics.

Thank you to the Prep Parents’ Organization for again supporting our Halloween fun with treats!

Please speak with your form adviser if you have any questions.

With our thanks and excitement for Halloween,

David Girard
Assistant Head, Primary Years
