Prep Parents’ Organization (PPO)

Upper Canada College is a dynamic and exciting community for our boys – and for our parents too.

As a Prep School parent, you’re automatically a member of the Prep Parent’s Organization (PPO) or, at the Upper School, the Parents’ Organization (PO). The PPO serves to enhance the boys’ experience, in partnership with administration and staff.

The PPO has a committee of about 40 parent volunteers who are hardworking, dedicated and passionate. They organize social events and services throughout the year such as the used book and used uniform sales, Blues Closet, Bake Sale, Festive Marketplace and Blue Ties Breakfast. While our goal is to celebrate the camaraderie, unity and spirit within the school, any funds raised from our initiatives allow us to contribute back to the school to enhance services and facilities for the boys.

We communicate to you mainly through the weekly Heads Up and monthly Year Representative e-newsletter. Please refer to it for news of PPO events in addition to all the school news. There’s also lots of information about the PPO on the UCC website. Please go to the tab that says, “Get Involved” or click here. All you’ll want to know about us is there. Each grade has a year rep and each class has 2 form reps. They plan coffee and social gatherings for your grade, skating and end of year parties for the boys among other activities.

Volunteering at UCC is a longstanding tradition. By becoming engaged you’ll gain insight into the boys’ school environment and also make some long and lasting friendships with fellow parents. Myriad volunteer opportunities await, depending on your availability, talents and interests. You’ll no doubt find it rewarding and enriching. It’s our volunteers who make these much anticipated and popular community events at the College so successful. Click here to learn more about PPO Committee. If you have any questions, please email our volunteer coordinator at volunteercoordinator@uccprepparents.ca

The PPO is a wonderful way to become informed and engaged in the school. This community spirit is what helps make UCC such great community.
