Trafalgar Noon Hour Programs

It’s time for another round of Noon Hour Programs! Once again, we are offering a variety of interesting and fun programs. Noon Hour Programs are a great opportunity 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. 

Programs are now offered to children from Kindergarten to Grade 7. This year, we are offering a slightly reduced program, in order to allow children the opportunity to fully take advantage of outdoor play. 

Programs begin the week of 27 January and run until Spring Break (the week of 9 March).  The programs will run at lunchtime between 12:10 – 12:47pm


Register here:

Registration opens on Monday, 13 January at 7:00 am and closes on Wednesday, 15 January at 7:00pm.  The programs typically sell out very quickly so it is a good idea to be prepared for Monday morning!

Registration will use the Munchalunch ordering system. Please go to to register. Noon Hour Program registration is 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 are available in cases of financial need. Please contact Mme. Lavoie directly for more information regarding bursaries.

Sportball Soccer

Sportball introduces primary school children to the concepts and skills involved in the eight core sports of the Sportball methodology: basketball, football, baseball, golf, hockey, soccer, volleyball, and tennis. Classes are conducted using developmentally appropriate methods and age appropriate equipment sized just right to introduce, practice and refine gross motor skills. The programs reinforce the benefits of teamwork and skills development rather than the importance of winning, enabling children to gain the confidence and develop the social skills necessary to succeed in sport and life. The curriculum is skills-driven, high-energy and fun-filled.
