After-school program club information

My name is Paul McGarr and I’m the co-ordinator of the Prep School after-school program (ASP). I’ve taken a lot of your feedback to make some changes to our program this year, some of which include:

  • more nutritional snack plans for each day (theme days);
  • a quiet area for our homework club with the Wernham and West Centre for Learning-trained and assisted Ontario certified teacher staff;
  • increased intensity, variety and balance of club opportunities throughout the year;
  • theme days including Game Day, Arts and Crafts Day and a Movie Day on top of your club options, with no extra fee;
  • an advanced computer programming program;
  • the “Chess Kindergarten” curricular program featuring the Chess Institute of Canada and its amazing instructors, with groups split by ability and knowledge rather than form;
  • a robotics program;
  • six highly qualified and energetic staff members who are excited to meet and learn about UCC boys;
  • ball hockey and touch football tournaments on focus days for older boys;
  • free trial days to experience some of our upcoming club options before you commit to our programs for the term;
  • picture boards where our staff will display pictures of your boys in action during club time;
  • and many more exciting things to come.
