This week UCC reminded our school family that we have moved into Advent. We identified the four weekly themes of Hope, Faith, Joy and Peace as we await Christmas. With advent comes the excitement of the Christmas season. You can notice the climate changing in the school as students and staff move about the hallways and classes of UCC.
Student anticipation of Christmas and a two-week break from classes is always a welcomed time of year. Nonetheless, there have are numerous activities over the next few weeks in preparation for Christmas. Some of the highlights will include our December 18th Advent Eucharistic Celebration for each grade level. Our annual Pedegape Christmas Dinner on December 5th will fill our cafeteria with 150 guests from our community. It will be a very fulfilling evening of service. Student council will be hosting lunchtime activities for the students including door decorating, Christmas caroling, Christmas sweater day and close December with the Christmas assembly on the last day of classes. Tremendous efforts are graciously given by so many – in time, generosity, acts of charity and good will. The Christmas spirit is alive and well here at UCC.
As we head into January, the end of the semester is in sight. Exams start on January 24th so students and staff will be in the process of preparation to wrap up courses and study.
UCC will also hold our annual Grade 8 Open House on Thursday, January 30th at 7 pm. Any grade 8 students and their parent or guardian is welcome to join us in our theatre at 7 pm for an information session and guided tours. Please plan to be with us.
Enjoy a peace-filled Christmas and joyful New Year.
