Secondary After School Activities - Fall 2019


Below is a summary of Secondary after school activities expected to begin in the second full week of the next 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.
