Welcome to Session 1 of TISA’s After School Activities Program for

teachers and parents. Please note that there are maximum group sizes in some clubs and students
may join these strictly on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.

If we need to cancel an after-school activity we will make every effort to contact you so you may
make arrangements to have your child picked up.

Please be sure to let the teacher of your child’s activity know if there are any health issues that
they need to be aware of.

I am looking forward to a successful first session of extra-curricular activities.
Have fun and enjoy this year’s TISA “After School Activities”.
