The TDSB, the City of Toronto and RBC have joined together to bring a Canadian tradition to students who may not have had the necessary equipment (skates/helmets) to learn to skate.
Tumpane students are thrilled that their school was picked to participate in the Learn to Skate Partnership Program. Ice time has been reserved for us at nearby Roding Arena on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings for 3 weeks starting the first week after the March Break. Students have been fitted with brand new Bauer equipment (skates and helmets), donated to our school just for this initiative. The new skate/helmet library will continue to be used by students for years to come. The City of Toronto has supplied four skating instructors for the program. Each instructor will work with a small group of students, based on their experience and ability level with skating.
Please make sure that your child has sent in the necessary permission form for these lessons or they will not be able to participate.
