Information Sessions for Parents

Each year during January and February we hold information sessions where you can learn more about our school's philosophy and program. These sessions are for parents applying for their child to start Kindergarten to Grade Three for the next school year. Parent Information Sessions for the 2018-2019 school year are now finished. Dates for the 2019-2020 school year will be posted here early 2019.


If you are interested in  attending one of these sessions, email diamondschool@shawlink.ca once dates are available. Include the names of those who will be attending, along with the grade(s) you are applying for. Attendance in each Parent Information Session is limited and is not a requirement for acceptance. You will receive an email confirming your session date as soon as possible.  Please note that these sessions are for parents only.  Accepted students will have the opportunity to visit the school at a later date.
