Lunch Supervision

Our cafeteria will not be open on September 1.  Please make sure you pack a lunch, snack and water for your child. 
Grade 6 students are not permitted  to leave the school during lunch times.  All grade 6 students must be registered for noon supervision.  You can do this using your MyCBE Account. 

Registration Information

Please visit our How to Register page for all registration details and registration forms.

Students are admitted to Sir Wilfrid Laurier School using the lottery system.  Applications are taken in January for the up-coming school year.

Forms Required

On the first day of school, your child will receive two packages of forms and a Demographic Verification Form.  The white package of forms is for your information and does not need to be returned.  The coloured package of forms along with the Demographic Verification Form need to be completed by you and returned to the school no later than September 12, 2022.  Please do not separate these forms but keep them together as a package so that none are lost.
