Let’s go skating!

In partnership with the Town of Portugal Cove–St. Philip’s, we are pleased to offer our learnerss an opportunity to skate at the Jack Byrne Arena in Torbay. To ensure this a successful venture, please adhere to the following expectations:

  • Only those students with skates and a helmet may participate – those who do not have skates and a helmet will remain here at the school under teacher supervision;
  • Learners/adults are not permitted on the ice without skates or a proper skating helmet – bicycle helmets are unacceptable forms of protection for skating and will not be permitted;
  • Hockey sticks will not be permitted;
  • Parents or other family members are strongly encouraged to attend and assist with lacing and unlacing skates – this takes an extraordinary amount of time and we want to maximize our time on the ice;
  • Please check with arena staff to see if parents/family members are allowed on the ice – numbers may pose an issue;
  • Parent/guardian participation is required for Kindergarten students;
  • Parents who participate must travel to the arena in their own vehicles – our students will travel to the arena by bus;
  • There is NO CHARGE for this event – it is being paid for entirely by the Town of Portugal Cove – St. Philip’s, and;
  • To assist us with our supervision planning; please advise your child’s teacher as to whether or not they will be participating.
