Program Notes:

  • Registering your child does not guarantee a place in a class. Places are confirmed by email.
  • Sufficient student registrations and a suitable instructor are required to offer a class.
  • The class may also be over-subscribed, in which case we will allocate places in order of registration.
  • A non-refundable $25 payment for classroom materials will be required when a place is confirmed.
  • Classes are built by age, not by ability. Classes may include several grades.
  • If a language is not offered, please email int-lang@hdsb.ca with your request. We require 23 students and a suitably qualified instructor to form a class.
