What is advanced registration? 

For those families who know their child would like to participate in more than one session this year, we are offering options to register in advance.

Advanced registration means you only complete one registration form (download form here) and you pay the applicable discounted fee: $160 for 2 sessions and $225 for 3 sessions.  With advanced registration, your child is automatically assigned space in the sessions you have prepaid.

What if I pay for advanced registration but decide to cancel a future session? 

Sessions can only be cancelled prior to that session’s registration date.  The request to cancel must be in writing (please email:  homeandschool@northleaschool.ca), by the following dates:

  • Winter session cancellation: December 15th, 2017;
  • Spring session cancellation: March 9th, 2018.

Refunds will reflect a per session fee of $85 and may take a few weeks to process.

Do I still have the option to register on a session-by-session basis?  

Yes, as in previous years, you can choose to register for one session at a time. The fee is $85 per session.

To register, please submit the form (download form here) with payment (cheques only payable to Northlea Home and School Association) to the school office in an envelope marked “chess registration” by dates specified. Or you can register and pay right now via our new secure online system:
