Volleyball Tournament

Posted on 1 December 2022 in Events

Last week the Grade 7 and 8 were able to take part in the annual Volleyball Tournament.

The day was a fun experience for all and each team was able to show a huge improvement in their skill over the season, saving their best performances for Friday. The Grade 7 team was able to win a game, the Grade 8 Boys won 2 of their 4 games, and the girls took home the trophy, by winning 3 games in the round robin as well as the final game.

The day was not without injury and we are thankful that Jack’s arm is healing in a cast and that his injury was not worse!

Special thanks to our helpers/coaches; Mrs VanSydenborgh, Mrs. Niezen, Miss VanLeeuwen, Mrs. Kamphuis, and Mrs. Bouwers.

Government Catch Up Payments

Posted on 21 October 2022 in News

Announcement from the Ontario Ministry of Education:

Today, the Ontario government launched Catch Up Payments, offering families direct financial support to support their children as they catch up. This money can be used to help to offset costs, whether that be for educational supplies, additional tutoring supports or other items to help their children address learning needs resulting from the pandemic. This new initiative commits a total of $365 million in direct financial relief for parents.

Families of students in publicly funded, private, First Nation/federally-operated or home-school settings will receive financial support. Students (up to 18 years old) can receive $200 per child, while students with special education needs (up to 21 years old) can receive $250. Families can apply for Catch Up Payments through a secure website (https://www.ontario.ca/page/catch-up-payments) where they can create a unique profile for each eligible student and check the status of their application throughout the process. Applications for Catch Up Payments are now open and will remain open until March 31, 2023.

School Refusal Presentation

Posted on 17 October 2022 in Events

Is your child reluctant or refusing to go to school? Long-term absences often have academic and social repercussions for the students involved.

Come out and join us in the gym of DACS on
Monday, October 31st from 1pm – 3pm
.

We will welcome Sabrina Jaspers, a counsellor who works with Christian Counselling Centre in Hamilton, ON, for a presentation focussing on the topic of “School Refusal/Avoidance/Reluctance.”

We hope to learn about and discuss causes and signals of this kind of anxiety, as well as strategies to resolve this.

Email jelko.oosterhof@dacslaurel.ca by October 20th to reserve your spot!

Note: this event is sponsored by DACS so there is no cost to attend!

10Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. 11Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.
