Noon Hour Programs

Once again, Trafalgar will be offering a variety of interesting and fun Noon Hour Programs. These programs are a great chance for children to have fun and enjoy extracurricular activities with their school friends, as well as a wonderful way to meet new friends!  The programs are all taught by experienced instructors with criminal record checks. Please review the attached flyer for details on each of the exciting programs we are offering.

In the fall term, programs are offered to children in Grades 1 – 7.   Programs will open up to Kindergarten kids in second term, once they have had a chance to settle in.

Programs begin the week of October 1st and run until the end of November/beginning of December 2018 (last session date varies according to program).  The programs will run at lunchtime between 12:15-12:57 pm.

Registration

Registration opens on September 17  at 7:00 am and closes on September 20 at 7:00pm.  

NEW THIS YEAR:  Registration will use the same new Munchalunch ordering system as the hot lunch program. 

The programs typically sell out in very quickly so you need to set up your account before registration opens on Monday September 17 at 7:00 am. Please click on the “Hot Lunch” button on the Trafalgar PAC website (http://trafalgarpac.ca) or go to Munchalunch.com/schools/trafalgar and set up your account. Click the “Register Here” button and the system will guide you through to add your children to your account. You will not be able to register for programs until Monday morning at 7:00 am. At that time, registration will open. You can log on to your Munchalunch account and you will find the Noon Hour Program registration under the Fundraising tab.

Registration is available for the whole term only (no pro-rated rates available). Courses may be canceled if minimum enrolment is not attained. Refunds are only offered under extenuating circumstances and only during the first week of class. There are no make up classes should students not attend their classes.  

Bursaries

Bursaries are available in cases of financial need. Please contact Mme. Lavoie directly for more information regarding bursaries.

After-School Programs

After-school programs are a fun and convenient way for our students to attend classes typically held in the community. These classes are held at our school so students can take themselves directly there after class. Your children will have lots of fun and you will save yourself some driving! Registration takes place directly through the providers. For more info contact provider directly or jlavoie@vsb.bc.ca.

Band

The Trafalgar School Band is an extracurricular music program funded by participating students and their family. Students who are in Grade 5-7 are eligible to play in the band. Participation in a school band is rewarding educationally and socially. Our goal is to make it both fun and productive for the band students. No previous musical experience is required, although if the students already know how to read music, that is a bonus. Our band teachers, Michelle Anderson (http://www.vancouverclarinetlessons.com/page1/About_us.html) and Ellen Marple (https://vancouveracademyofmusic.com/teachers/marple/) are both professional musicians who love sharing music with people of all ages.

There is a beginning band and senior band, both meeting 2 mornings a week from 7:55 to 8:40 am during the school year.  Band students get to choose from a wide variety of woodwind and bass instruments such as flute, clarinet, bass clarinet, trumpet, trombone, baritone, saxophone, oboe, French horn and tuba. The bands perform in many concerts throughout the year. Any interested parent can contact the Trafalgar School Band Parent Committee (trafalgarschoolband@gmail.com) for further information.
