St. Paul's University College (formerly St. Paul's United College) is an affiliated institution of the University of Waterloo, located in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. The college has two functions: first, it is a residence for both undergraduate and graduate students of the University; and, second, it offers classes to all University students. St. Paul's is home to the Waterloo Indigenous Student Centre, which offers support services for Indigenous students; GreenHouse, a live-in social innovation community and business incubator; and hotel-style guest rooms for visitors.

History[edit]

St. Paul's was founded in 1962 by the United Church of Canada (UCC) and first opened its doors to students in 1963. The UCC's goal was to provide a place where students of any background, denomination, religion, or academic program could come to study and be stimulated academically, intellectually, and spiritually. The College now operates independently of UCC as a legacy corporation with no formal or legal relationship.[3]

Residences[edit]

St. Paul's University College undergraduate residence building

St. Paul's has residences at 190 and 196 Westmount Rd. North.[4] St. Paul's has two residence communities: the undergraduate residence and the Apartment Building. Undergraduate students in the Faculty of Environment, Women in Engineering, and International Engineering may be part of the popular Living-Learning Community, which provides academic support from Peer Leaders and upper-year students.

Undergraduate residence[edit]

The undergraduate residence opened in 1963 and houses 192 students on eight 'floors.' Seven of these floors - Empire, Wildside, Penthouse, Alcatraz, Dungeon, Oasis, and La Bastille - contain double accommodation and have been in use since the opening of the college. The remaining floor, Purgatory, opened in September, 2003 and has single accommodation. Empire was formerly known as Apathy, La Bastille was formerly known as Olympus, and Wildside was formerly known as W5 (Wild Wonderful Women of the West Wing). In 2017, the new St. Paul's Green Wing expansion opened. With this came the addition of 6 new residence floors adding 73 rooms. Atlantis, Blackforest, Gotham, Arcadia, Olympus, and Galactica all offer 'Super Single' accommodations featuring double size beds and private ensuite bathrooms.

The residence has several traditions that are unique to the college. The fall term begins with a week-long Orientation Week that is run jointly with the other residences and faculties to acquaint incoming first-year students with the campus. St. Paul's Orientation Week is traditionally centered on winning the Golden Beanie. Early in the fall term, the entire college plays a game of capture the flag, and another game entitled 'Gotcha' where the residents try to tag and eliminate each other through survival of the fittest.

Watson's Eatery is the cafeteria at St. Paul's University College. First-year students and dons subscribe to a semi-all you can eat meal plan, containing 5 and 4 swipes per day on weekdays and weekends respectively. A swipe normally constitutes an entree with a variety of other food choices, such as salad, soup, and desserts. On weekdays, Watson's Eatery opens at 7:30 am for breakfast until 10:30 am, while lunch is served from 11:30 am to 2:00pm. Every weekday, dinner service begins at 4:30 pm until 6:00 pm, although the Watson's Grille (which serves burgers, fries, and has a deli bar) is open until 8:00 pm. However, on weekends, dinner at Watson's is exclusively open from 4:30-6 pm. Hence, Watson's offers a late dinner service that allows a student to fill out a form requesting certain food choices, where the dinner is aside for that individual. In addition, on weekends, Watson's replaces its breakfast and lunch services with brunch, which is not open until 11:00 am.

In early March, the annual Blackforest Coffeehouse showcases talent from both the college and the region; most performers present musical acts, although other acts (such as magic or spoken word) are sometimes showcased.

Each school night, toast and several spreads are made available at Toast Time so that students can have a study break. Other regular activities include writing workshops, intramural sports teams, and community dinners.

La Bastille, a floor that houses 17 French-speaking students, is the only such floor on the Waterloo campus.

Facilities that are available to students include a cafeteria with full meal service, three lounges, laundry facilities, a reading room, classrooms, a chapel (now mainly functioning as a multi-purpose classroom), and a games room.

Apartments[edit]

The Apartment Building at St. Paul's opened in September 2004. The building houses over 100 graduate students in 80 apartments and suites, as well as upper-year undergraduate students. There is a variety of designs available in the units, including single accommodation, double accommodation, and accommodation to house students with families. There are also 8 guest rooms available to visitors of the University (such as parents, researchers, and visiting professors).

Academic programs[edit]

St. Paul's offers a small number of courses in the areas of spirituality and personal development, Native studies, religious studies, and International Development. St. Paul's was the home of the Canadian Studies program; however, the program closed at the end of the 2004-05 academic year.

Waterloo Indigenous Student Centre[edit]

St. Paul's is home to the University of Waterloo's Indigenous Student Centre. The Centre is available to members of the university community for counselling, academic advice, and liaising to Indigenous resources. The Centre staff work closely with the Indigenous Students Association to provide opportunities for Indigenous students to explore and celebrate their heritage.

The Centre organise events that are of interest to Aboriginal students and others; they include weekly speakers, a weekly soup lunch, and an annual pow wow.

Environment Living-Learning Community[edit]

In 2007, St. Paul's welcomed Faculty of Environment students into the new Living-Learning Community. This program offers students the chance to live with their classmates and attend many faculty-oriented events as well as social programming.

Bishop Luffa School, named after a former Bishop of Chichester, Ralph de Luffa, is a coeducationalChurch of Englandsecondary school in the City of Chichester, West Sussex, England. The number of enrolled students was around 1,400 in 2010, in eight 'Year' house-forms and the sixth form. The school is a Technology College, holding Leading Edge status, with national Artsmark and Sportsmark also having been awarded.

New classrooms

The school applied for planning permission for a drama studio to form the start of a new £2.5m creative arts centre for the school[1]. The planning application was approved and the school started construction in August 2006. The drama studio was opened in February 2007. The school has also extended their sports hall, adding an extension onto the original facility, where the climbing wall is now kept.[1][2]

Sixth form

There is an integral sixth form at Bishop Luffa for students who wish to continue their education after the age of sixteen, with an annual intake of around 160. Although 140 existing pupils are given priority, 20 pupils from other schools are also accepted each year for entry in Year 12, for which competition is very keen.[3] A wide range of subjects can be studied, including Business Studies, Computing, Law and Economics. For the most able students, the school also offers the new AQA Baccalaureate 'Bacc' hybrid qualification, including a 100 hour self-directed project.

The academic admissions criteria are rigorous, and progression from Year 11/Lower school into the Sixth Form for existing KS4 students is by no means automatic, with all applicants being offered conditional places; which are then only confirmed for the highest performing 140 students, once final GCSE results are known. At a minimum, five GCSE grades A*-C are required to gain entry *AND* at least a GCSE B grade is needed in each of the subjects that are desired to be studied at AS/A2, except for Maths (GCSE Maths A required) and Further Maths (GCSE Maths A* required).

Typically, around half of GCSE students leave the school aged sixteen for either further AS/A2 College study, vocational training or employment.

A2 level pass rates at Bishop Luffa are well above national average. 2010 % Pass rate= 99.2%. % A2 entries at grades A or B = 60%, with the majority of successful A2 students going onto established universities, including around a dozen each year to Oxford & Cambridge.

Teaching aids

The majority of the school's classrooms are equipped with SMART boards to incorporate ICT into learning. Many of the SMART boards have rendered the traditional whiteboard obsolete, in some cases resulting in them being removed.

The school is in the process of rolling out the RM Learning Platform: 'Kaleidos' - with the implementation focus for academic year 2011/12 being on Years 10 and 12. An increasing amount of homework will be set, completed and marked on this web based system, which pupils and parents can access from home.

Academic performance

St John Paul 2 College

KS4/Y11: The school consistently ranks[citation needed] within the top three state secondary school for GCSE results in the West Sussex LEA[4] with a 2011 average individual GCSE total point score of 454 and with 86% of students achieving at least 5 A*-C non-vocational GCSE grades.

KS5/Y13: At A2 level in 2010, the school achieved the 2nd highest state establishment average individual candidate point score in West Sussex (behind Collyer's 6th Form College, Horsham), and was ranked 9th from the total of the 56 KS5 establishments overall within the West Sussex LEA. This equated to 62% of all subject entries being awarded either A or B grades at A2.[5] In 2011, 57% of all A2 entries gained A*-B grades, with an average candidate A2 point score of 697, or 779 including AS.

The latest (Oct 2008) Ofsted report rated the school as uniformly 'outstanding' across all metrics.[6]The school was praised by the Anglican schools inspectorate for its Christian religious character. [7]

Houses

Years 7 - 11 are split into 8 house groups, each named after former Bishops of Chichester:

Bell - Green, Burrows - Blue, King - Pink, Otter - Purple, Ridgeway - Red, Sherborne - Black, Story - White and Wilson - Yellow

Sports

Sport at Bishop Luffa is a very important part of the school, with sports competitions taking place every week. The competitions or matches are either 'interhouse' (where students from one house or a particular form within that house play other students from other houses or forms) or externally, against other schools.

A2 College St Paul Ukrainian

At the end of the year all the points from the interhouse competitions are totalled (the points being 1=8th 2=7th .. 7=2nd 8=1st), and the house with the most points are awarded with an interhouse trophy.

Additionally, at the end of the year there is a Sports Day, in which students in years 7-10 participate. This is one of the biggest events in the school calendar, alongside others such as the Sixth Form Fashion Show and Charity Weeks. In the last five years King House have won four times; however last year Sherborne broke their winning streak and took first place.

World Record

On Thursday 24th of March 2011, during the school's annual Charity Week, the whole school successfully took part in an attempt to break the previous record (551) for 'Most People in a Human Smiley' with 1349 pupils and teachers.[8] They also fought off fierce attempts by the French to break the record the same day. Pictures were taken from a plane that soared above the school for about 10 minutes during lunch time whilst everyone was being organized by Sixth Form student Hugh Sutton. Bishop Luffa appeared on the BBC local news later on that evening. The Sixth Form aim to use the money raised from this and the rest of Charity Week to support the sixth form's charity Grass roots.
