2019 Winter Activity Day Information

2019 Winter Activity Day Information

Dear De La Salle Community:

Please read the below information thoroughly and carefully as it contains important dates and instructions regarding Winter Activity Day.

The Student Council has been working hard over the past month organizing this year's Winter Activity Day. This year, De La Salle's Winter Activity Day will take place on Thursday, February 28th.

To ensure the success of this year's Winter Activity Day, we are expecting the full participation of the student body. Any additional proceeds from the day will go towards funding future Student Council and House System initiatives.

The day provides an opportunity for students to engage in physical activity within various environments. Students are encouraged to try a new activity and put themselves outside of their comfort zone. For example, many students will be trying skiing for the first time and lessons will be included as part of the skiing/snowboarding packages. Ultimately, the day provides an opportunity for some fun, while experiencing something new. 

Once again, we will be using our Online Registration Form and secure Pay Pal service to process all forms and payments. New to the Online Registration Form is the electronic signature of the Acknowledgement and Assumption of Risk Form. When choosing your child's activity, please be aware of all details pertinent to that location (see below), including departure and arrival times, lunch options, bus pick-up locations and additional waiver forms. All additional waiver forms are accessible via the provided links on the Registration Form, with the exception of the Snow Valley activities, which require you to print, complete and return to the Main Office no later than February 14.

If you have any issues or concerns, please feel free to email Mr. Voutsinos, atjvoutsinos@delasalle.ca, Mrs. Berardi at cberardi@delasalle.ca, or Mr. Zappone at azappone@delasalle.ca, as they work closely with the Student Council. 

Registration is now open (click here), and will close on Thursday, February 14th. Each activity is capped at a maximum number of students (indicated on the online form), and spots are ensured on a first-come first-served basis, so please register in a timely fashion in order to avoid disappointment.
