Activities at AISK
The After School Activities Program is an important part of our AISK community and a fun way for your son or daughter to participate in educational, fun, active and well-animated and run activities. We are proud to offer a wide variety, from the artistic activities to the more active and sporting related activities. Children from our earliest grades right through to Grade 12 are welcome to participate. Activities happen after school, so students can move seamlessly from classes to activities, finishing at 3:55 p.m. for the Elementary students and at different times, according to providers, for the Middle and High School students.
While we are welcoming back some of our more popular activities, we are proud to welcome a selection of new activities to the list, including SCUBA diving and “GetFit Kids” program.
While some of our activities are free, there are some that have a cost associated with them. All details of cost and payment are to be handled directly with the person or service that are providing the activity. It is important to note that AISK will not be responsible for any monies pertaining to the paid activities. All communications and handling of funds must be done directly with the provider.
While most of our activities are on campus, some are offered off campus. Transportation to and from the activities varies and we encourage you to get in contact with these providers to confirm details.
Signing up for activities will happen on campus in the week starting August 15. There will be sign up forms on tables in front of our administration building on campus and will be in this location until Friday, August 26. Activities will start on Monday, August 29. If you are not able to get to campus or are joining us after the two weeks that the sheets will be there, we will provide you with a list of activities and the providers with their contact information and will encourage you to contact the providers directly. Please note, all providers’ contact details are already on the website at the bottom of each activity description.
Activities are divided into two sessions; one starting Monday, August 29 and running to Friday, December 9, 2016 and a second, with its own sign up period (January 9-13), running from Monday, January 16 and running to Friday, May 26, 2017. Students are encouraged to either sign up for something new or to sign up again for an activity that they started in August. Some of the activities will not be open for sign ups in January as they will run all year, so please “stay tuned” for details.
Thank you for your attention and we look forward to seeing your children involved, active and happy throughout this school year!
“We have to stand up for what we believe in, even when we might not be popular for it. Honesty starts with being ourselves, authentic and true to who we are and what we believe in, and that may not always be popular, but it will always let you follow your dreams and your heart.” -- Tabatha Coffey
