The protozoa being single cell "animal" organisms, whereas bacteria are a range of microorganisms that appear to have properties plant-like and animal-like.

Upper Canada College encourages students to engage in voluntary community service. Every year the school plans and runs several on or off-site events, some of which are open only to students in certain years, while others to the entire student population, alumni, and their respective friends and family.

These events are intended to serve a variety of purposes—promoting school spirit, for enjoyment, fund raising or philanthropic causes—and many are organized by the Upper Canada College Association , with the help of parent and student volunteers. Association Day is analogous to UCC's homecoming.

Held since , A-Day , as it is informally known, constitutes the school's largest annual event, taking place over the last weekend of September and culminating on the Saturday with a large festival, including competitive matches for all fall sports teams and the Association Dinner for Old Boys celebrating their five-year incremental class reunions.

It typically takes place on the Thursday night before the third weekend in January, which is made a special long weekend for students as a commemoration of Sir John Colborne's birthday. Two secondary school student dances take place in the calendar year: The revival of the UCC Rifle Corps in resulted in students attending the At Home in their cadet uniforms and, by , a dance was added to the festivities in the evening, known as the Rifle Corps Dance.

The event was held off-campus for the first time in , at the King Edward Hotel , and, after , when the Cadet Corps was disbanded, school uniforms replaced military attire, rock bands played, and Batt Ball became more of a spring prom. Today, Batt Ball is reserved for students in grades 11 and 12, held at venues such as the Royal York Hotel or Arcadian Court , with attire being tuxedo for boys and evening gown or cocktail dress for girls, and music is provided by DJs.

The dance takes place in late October and is administrated by the Board of Stewards for all students in grades 11 and above. Various sporting events occur annually: Hockey Night has been held by the college since as an evening where the First Hockey team would play a feature game against one of UCC's rival schools in competition for the Foster Hewitt Victory Trophy.

Over the decades other games were added to the roster, including a game involving the school's Junior Varsity team, the final game of the house hockey tournament, and a game between Havergal College and Bishop Strachan School. By the early s, pleasure skating and Prep School games had been added to the evening's schedule.

Further, the Terry Fox Run is one of Upper Canada College's most successful events; the school is an official site for the run, acting as the start and end point, as well as part of the course, which ventures throughout Toronto's Belt-Line. The school had, between and , a relationship with an Ontario Junior Hockey League team, the Upper Canada Hockey Club , though the team and the school were not directly affiliated. The college states that almost every UCC graduate, known as an Old Boy , goes on to post-secondary schooling, though some will take a sabbatical ; [] Peterson's reported in that of graduating students, went on to college or university.

The school has produced six lieutenant governors , four premiers , seven chief justices, and four Mayors of Toronto. At least 17 graduates have been appointed to the Queen's Privy Council for Canada , 25 have been named Rhodes Scholars , [] five have been named Loran Scholars , [3] [] [] 10 are Olympic medallists , and at least 13 have been accepted as fellows of the Royal Society of Canada.

The Upper Canada College Old Boys' Association is a non-profit organization established in , on the day of the closure of the college's Russell Square campus. The name was changed in to the Upper Canada College Association, [42] when the association expanded its mandate to include parents, faculty, staff and friends of the college in matters relating to UCC, such as governance and advancement.

A person board of directors, referred to as the Association Council, meets three times a year to discuss matters facing the college and plan association events; 21 of those on the council are elected by members of the association at its annual meeting, while the remaining eight are ex-officio.

Upper Canada College's motto is palmam qui meruit ferat , meaning "let he who merited the palm bear it," [2] and was derived from the poem by John Jortin titled Ad Ventos—ante A. The words, attached to the arms of Lord Nelson in , [] were first used in relation to UCC in , as part of an emblem stamped on the inside of books given as prizes, showing the phrase written on a ribbon tying together two laurel leaves around the school's name. Around , a crown replaced the school's name; John Ross Robertson stated this was at the insistence of Henry Scadding , who argued in favour of its use because the school had both been founded by a lieutenant governor and was at first a Royal Grammar School.

In , Scadding produced the design for the insignia which can still be seen over the doors to Laidlaw Hall at the college's Upper School. Kerslake described this crest in The small wreath, crossed anchor and sword in the centre of the crest are found in Lord Nelson's coat of arms. The open book in the upper left corner is symbolic of education which is the primary function of any school.

The quadrant-shaped figure in the upper right corner is a section of the standard of St. George and signifies the school's connection with England and Great Britain, the native land of the founder, Lord Seaton.

Technically speaking, the crown should not be included in the crest, as the school was not instituted by royal charter. However, loyalty to the Crown is one of the fundamental traditions of UCC and is certain to endure as long as the school itself.

The cornua copiae just above the motto stands for the fullness of school life which is one of the distinctive marks of UCC. This complex design, known as Scadding's Device , [] which was just the Seal of Upper Canada as authorised in with the college's motto and palm branches applied, was never widely used. It was not until the mids, as the college approached its sesquicentennial, that consideration was given to having the crest authorised by the College of Arms , then the heraldic authority for Canada, and the Armoral Bearings Committee was established to oversee the project.

A petition was thereafter submitted to the Earl Marshal in The letters patent granting UCC its armorial achievements, including a heraldic standard , were issued on 4 January , the th anniversary of the college's first day of classes. However, as text and figures are normally not included in such emblems, the motto was omitted, but the King of Arms made an exception to the rules by allowing the retention of the date The escutcheon of the arms shows two deer's heads in the chief—one being the crest of the arms of the Lord Seaton and the other taken from the arms of Bishop John Strachan , the first chairman of the board of governors—while, below a line of division embattled as in Seaton's achievement, is the aforementioned Scadding's Device surmounted by another royal crown.

The shield is supported by, on the left, a master in academic gown and, at right, a student in cricket uniform, both styled on such figures in the midth century.

UCC was a filming location for the movie Searching for Bobby Fischer [] and was the focus of episode eight of season nine of the Rogers Television show Structures.
