UTS Music Programexpand

Music is compulsory for the first two years at UTS, with students choosing to play an instrument from the string or wind/percussion program. UTS Music courses provide a breadth of experiences geared to the beginner through advanced player including: performance, informed listening, collaboration, improvisation, composition, music technology, arranging, theory, and historical and cultural research (including the study of classical music, world music, jazz and popular music). Computer technology is used for research and as a creative tool for arranging and composition projects. Through these activities the physical, intellectual, emotional and social aspects of the complete musical experience are developed. In the senior years, students are encouraged to make a significant contribution both to UTS and the community as a whole. The Music Department, OISE/UT and the Faculty of Music, University of Toronto, continue to develop partnerships to further enrich the Music Program. ...



Leadership and Outdoor Educationexpand

UTS' annual outdoor education events are the core of its Leadership Program. The program is vital to UTS’s commitment to producing tomorrow’s leaders. Camp Couchiching, near Orillia, occurs in mid-September. Grade 12 students organize the weekend which introduces new grade 7 students to UTS' familial atmosphere and cherished traditions. The young students are introduced to the House System and early in the school year begin to gain the spirit of the school and their House. Camp Wanakita, in Haliburton, is host to the winter leadership programs. They are four days long and take place in February and March. The programs combine outdoor activities, such as cross-country skiing and hiking, with workshops and activities to develop students’ leadership skills. The grades 7 and 8 programs are lead by specially trained grade 11 students. The grade 7 program focuses on community building, where students learn what it means to be a part of a community and what their role is within it. The grade 8 program is based on team building, where students engage in activities in which they have an opportunity to be both leaders and team members. The activities require the cooperation, respect and encouragement of all team members. The grade 11 program trains students to be group leaders at the grades 7 and 8 Wanakita programs. The training sessions address a variety of leadership skills including communication and safety, as well as activity guidance and group facilitation, and provide an opportunity for the leader teams to bond. Camp Ahmek, in Algonquin Park, runs for three days and is a new destination for UTS. This grade 9 leadership retreat focuses on individual leadership skills. Students begin to identify and harness their own leadership strengths as well as work together in group situations. Again, the program combines outdoor activities, such as canoeing and climbing, with leadership workshops. ...



Athletics at UTSexpand

University of Toronto Schools believes that a dynamic program of student athletics is vital to the educational development of our students. We believe our athletic program should function as an integral part of the total curriculum. It should offer opportunities to serve the institution, to assist in the development of positive relationships and good will, to promote self-realization, all-around growth and good citizenship qualities. At UTS, athletics play an important role in the life of our students and the school. Young people learn a great deal from participation in interscholastic athletics. Lessons in sportsmanship, teamwork, competition, and how to win and lose gracefully are integral parts of our athletic program. Further, athletic participation plays an important part in helping students develop a healthy self-concept as well as a healthy body. Athletic competition also improves school spirit and helps students develop pride in our school. Coaching leadership at UTS is of the highest quality. Measurement of leadership success at UTS is not measured in terms of tangible evidence of the victories and defeats. Instead, character, courage, and integrity, are our major objectives of the athletic program. UTS proudly competes in two of the finest athletic associations in Ontario and Canada, the Toronto District Elementary School Athletic Associations (Foundation Level grades) and the Toronto District Secondary School Athletic Associations (Grade 9-12). Both athletic associations provide UTS with the opportunity to participate in a wide range of interscholastic athletics, including the opportunity to play at the provincial level in the OFSAA (Ontario Federation of Secondary Schools Athletic Association) championships. ...



Dedication to the Studentexpand

The University of Toronto Schools (UTS) is dedicated to the education of students of outstanding academic ability. The rigorous liberal arts and science curriculum prepares them exceptionally well for university stressing a balance among disciplines rather than early specialization. Each year more than 500 applicants from Toronto and environs compete for one of 110 places. Selected through competitive examinations, academic reports and an interview, the culturally and ethnically diverse student body is indicative of Greater Toronto's cultural richness. UTS students have always been expected to strive for breadth and depth, both within and outside the traditional classroom environment. At this school, learning is valued, individuals are respected, intellectual activity is encouraged and physical needs well served. UTS has established a record of unparalleled accomplishments by its students. A measure of the school's success in developing well-rounded students is the awarding of 20 Rhodes Scholarships to our graduates and two Nobel Prizes, a remarkable achievement for a school of its size. ...



Working for Habitat for Humanityexpand

A student shares his experience working for Habitat for Humanity in El Salvador: This past March Break, I was one of ten UTS students who traveled to El Salvador to participate in a Global Village ˜Build™ with Habitat for Humanity. The goal of our trip was to assist in the construction of sustainable housing for families who live in substandard conditions. At the outset of the trip, I don'™t think any of us knew what to expect. Would the work be extremely arduous? Would we overcome the cultural and language barriers? Each question was answered with a resounding "YES" over the course of the trip; we experienced much more than we could have ever dreamed of. Our time spent in El Salvador, however, was about much more than just the construction of the house. We witnessed first hand the effects of poverty in a developing nation; thousands of El Salvadorians faced unhealthy living conditions and troublesome economic difficulties. We learnt a lot about the El Salvadorians'™ way of life simply by taking walks through the village adjacent to our construction site, and listening to those around us, and were astounded by a level of poverty entirely new to us. But despite (and perhaps because of) the hard work and poverty, we all had a fantastic experience. It was truly amazing to see our group work in such a cohesive manner; the trip brought us closer together as friends and teammates. We also became closer to many of the El Salvadorians'“ we developed a strong bond with the host family, the masons, and our translators. I think we would all agree that our trip to El Salvador was, in a word, incredible. In closing, I'd like to leave you with a quotation which embodies our work with Habitat for Humanity, and sends chills down my spine every time I read it: "œNever doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." ...



Canadian Teens in Zambiaexpand

Eight UTS students traveled to Lusaka, Zambia to film a documentary about the feminization of AIDS. The girls stayed at the Umoyo Training Centre, a haven for AIDS orphans, street kids, and victims of sexual abuse. Stephen Lewis, former UN Special Envoy for HIV/AIDS, describes Umoyo as "the best example of girls"™ empowerment I've seen in many a year in Africa [The girls] come together in this residential setting for a year, and emerge from the desperate trauma of death and loss, fully self-confident, brimming with excitement about education and life, open and informed about the danger of HIV/AIDS and ready to tackle the world. In Nyanja, a common dialect in Zambia, the word "Umoyo" means life. Through Umoyo (life), the documentary the UTS crew filmed, with support from the National Film Board, the students are sharing the remarkable stories of the girls they met at Umoyo with their peers back home, and abroad. They previewed the documentary at the XVI International AIDS Conference, and traveled across Canada to screen the film at schools and community centres. They also traveled to to Germany, where the documentary was screened at a film festival in Frankfurt. The festival is occurring in conjunction with the biennial Austro-German conference on HIV/AIDS. The students hope to continue their outreach efforts, raising awareness and funds to support young HIV/AIDS-affected women, as they embark on their university careers.
