Registration

Registration to our ECAs Program occurs each trimester, although some activities may require a year-long commitment. Students may sign-up for activities via an electronic registration form sent to parents via email at the beginning of each trimester.

It is important that prior to making a selection, you discuss the available options with your child to decide which activities he or she will be most interested in participating in, keeping in mind that these will be the activities that he or she will engage in throughout the trimester.

Contacts

If you have any questions about any of the above activities or the registration process, please email our Student Activities Coordinator, Sarah Emptage.
