Primary After School Activities - Fall 2019


Below is a summary of Primary after school activities expected to start in the second full week of the new school year (week commencing 26.08.2019).

Dress Code - Sport Activities

All participants of sporting activities are expected to wear appropriate, functional clothing. Indoor activities require non-marking, clean indoor shoes.

Commitment and Absences

There is an expectation that once signed up for an activity, students attend the activity for its entire duration. If circumstances prevent students from coming to or continuing an activity, we ask you to inform myself and the activity leader/coach in advance. Attendance will be taken into account when picking teams for GISST tournaments.

Costs

As a general rule, there is no additional charge for after school activities. Exceptions are:

Jazz Dance and Ballet - a small fee is required to secure the services of a qualified dance teacher. The cost will be determined by the number of participants, and the fee should be paid directly to the teacher at the start of the course (further details will be provided at the start of next school year).

GISST tournaments - travel and accommodation costs are shared amongst the team
