In a celebration of creativity and expression, UMC High School proudly presents its latest edition of the school magazine โ€“ ‘The Maddy.’ This edition is not just a magazine; it’s a canvas that captures the essence of our students’ unique voices, ideas, and literary flair.

From insightful reflections on personal experiences to capturing moments through the lens of photography, each piece reflects the diversity of perspectives within our school community. This edition serves as a testament to the power of creative expression. Our students have fearlessly explored their imagination, using words as a medium to convey emotions, dreams, and aspirations. The magazine becomes a dynamic platform for artistic freedom, allowing students to experiment with language and narrative styles.

UMC High School believes in fostering a culture of writing, where students feel empowered to share their thoughts and ideas. The magazine stands as a symbol of this commitment, encouraging students to embrace their unique voices and contribute to the academic richness of our school community. As we unveil this new edition, we invite everyone to immerse themselves in the pages of creativity and imagination.

NEW ISSUE OF THE MADDY MAGAZINE (Vol 1 & 2) NOW AVAILABLE ONLINE

Welcome to โ€˜The Maddy” โ€“ UMC High Schoolโ€™s First School Magazine.

The high school student leaders officially released the first magazine of the school. This was a pioneering action by the leadership team of the school. It is a policy of the school to empower its students to give them the task of leading and pioneering, taking little tender steps in to responsibility as a symbol of their future endeavours.

The supervisors of The Maddy, Mr. Sunny & Ms. Danna mentioned that our students are capable of producing a range of works, from poetry to short stories, from academic essays to book reviews. We thought that such talent should be shown beyond the classrooms; these poignant and evocative works should be read by everyone in the school. And so The Maddy was born.

Upcoming School Immunization Program Clinic at UMC High School

Upcoming School Immunization Program Clinic at UMC High School

Date: Monday January 23, 2023

Dear Students, Parents and Guardians:

Toronto Public Health (TPH) will be holding a vaccine clinic at UMC High School on Thursday March 9, 2023. This catch-up clinic will offer Hepatitis B, Human Papillomavirus (HPV), and Meningococcal vaccines to students who are missing one or more doses of these important vaccines. The clinic will be held during school hours for Grade 9-12 students who attend the school.

Vaccines are safe, effective and one of the most important ways to improve health worldwide and prevent the spread of infectious diseases. Vaccinating children and youth helps protect them against infectious diseases and some cancers, and can prevent them from passing on an infection to other vulnerable people in their family or school community.

Under Ontarioโ€™s Immunization of School Pupil Act (ISPA), all students are required to be up-to-date with Meningococcal vaccines or have a valid exemption. Hepatitis B and HPV vaccines prevent cancers and are recommended but voluntary for school attendance.

Parents/guardians of students who would like their child to be vaccinated with one or more school-based vaccines at the school’s clinic on March 9, 2023 should do the following:

  1. Read the Hepatitis B, Human Papillomavirus (HPV) and Meningococcal fact sheets.
  2. Complete, sign and return the School Immunizations consent form. Have your child return the signedย consent form to the school office by March 2, 2023. Paper copies of the consent form may be availableย through the school office. Electronic consent forms will not be accepted by TPH.
  3. On the day of the clinic, students should bring their health card or another form of ID, as well as a copy ofย their immunization records, if available. Wear a mask while attending the clinic.

For information about the School Immunization Program, please also review our School Immunization Program in Secondary Schools Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) and the School Immunization Program Parent & Student Checklist for Secondary Schools. You can also speak to your health care provider or call TPH at 416- 338-7600, Monday-Friday 8:30 AM โ€“ 4:30 PM. Interpretation services are available.

 

Sincerely,
Toronto Public Health
