Each class will have space for a maximum of 10 kids, so we have space for 60 kids in this session. The 3-4 pm class will have a preteen/teen class. The other time slots will be broken down into age groups for 4 to 11 year olds. The cost for the 6 week session is $45.40. The fee for the kids to play on the play structure before and after the booking will be $3.00. They will charge $3.50 for any siblings that are not participating in the booking to play in the play structure, these costs are NOT INCLUDED in the registration fees, and need to be paid to the facility. Registration will be the week of September 18th – 27th. Contact Sheri Mead : firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. Thanks!
This ice time is booked for home educators and we have full use of the ice surface and a dressing room during each session.
As always, parental supervision of your own children is required and you are responsible for the conduct and the safety your children.
Any children learning to skate or playing “stick and puck” are required to wear helmets. Skates, helmets and other equipment can be borrowed from the Sport Venture Library or purchased used from Sports Exchange.
It's a strange world of language in which skating on thin ice can get you into hot water.
- Franklin P. Jones
If you have any questions, contact Sherry.
Here are the skating times. I will send you an email with rules/guidelines that the rinks want us to follow. They were very generous with us and we have the second most ice times in all the schools listed on my email.
Note, the times are not chronological as they are listed by rink. Our first ice session will be November 10 from 1-3 p.m. at the Doug Wickenheiser.

ARCHE Swimming Lessons used to be organized at a discount through the City of Regina. The last couple years, those discounts were not available, so they were organized through the North Regina YMCA (5939 Rochdale Blvd), using their instructors and their facilities. The cost has been between $60-$75, depending on level and whether you are a YMCA member, but there has basically been no ARCHE member discount.
Here are the levels/divisions we used:
|Lil'Dippers||Ages 3-5: Bobbers, floaters, gliders, divers, surfers, dippers|
|Learn to swim||Ages 6+: Otter, Seal, Dolphin and Swimmer|
|Star 1,2,3,4||Ages 6+: To start in star you must have completed Swimmer or the equivalent levels.|
|Star 5,6,7||Ages 6+: To start in star you must have completed Swimmer or the equivalent levels.|
|Learn to swim||Ages 6+: Otter and Seal|
|Learn to swim||Ages 6+: Dolphin and Swimmer|
It looks like Tuesday afternoons would be pretty limited time available, so they have offered us a bit more time on Monday mornings.
I am just hoping those who would be interested in swimming lessons on Monday mornings can please e-mail me.
P.S. If you have a Y membership, these lessons would not qualify as your free lessons, they are booked separately as a private booking, so we would all have to pay. It has been significantly less money in the past however. Also these lessons would be at the Y on Rochdale Blvd. Thanks in advance for your responses!
I was contacted by the Y to see if we would like to do swimming lessons this year! My kiddos need to, and it’s looking like Tuesday afternoons will work best – from possibly October 17 – November 20 or 27? If you are interested in this please fill out the form attached and email it back to me at email@example.com. This will be at the Y on Rochdale. I need to gauge if there is enough interest and at what levels. I would get back to you with registration information and exact times in a week to 10 days.
Let me know if you have questions,
Field Trips have been organized to fire halls, police stations, Regina City Hall, the Saskatchewan Legislature, the Regina Wastewater Treatment Plant, the Buffalo Pound Water Treatment plant, the City of Regina Landfill, and various other facilities.
As always, parental supervision of your own children is required and you are responsible for the conduct and the safety your children. It is very important that you read and understand ARCHE Etiquette.
“We came to the land to which you sent us. It flows with milk and honey, and this is its fruit."

There is currently no overall Field Trip coordinator for ARCHE (perhaps you would do it?). If you organize a field trip, please let us know so we can post it here.

ARCHE Afternoon Activities (AAA)
Our theme for the Winter 2017 6 week session is "All Nations - Countries and Cultures”. Each of the classes will be based around a different country every week, with each age group having a gym/active class, a creative/art class and a foods/snack class.
There will be a coffee corner available for moms during their free class. A nursery room will be available for those with babies. The age groups will start with 4 year olds and go up to teens.
“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
- Matthew 28:18-20

There have been Arts classes organized through ARCHE in the past, and there are usually a number of community Art Classes that are offered during the day that may be of interest to ARCHE members. There are no current ARCHE Art classes being organized.

Other activities and events
We only display ARCHE-organized events on the infoline. That means that the organizers and participants understand and abide by ARCHE Philosophy and Etiquette.
However, there are often many other events that may be of interest to home educating families. We generally send those events out via email, but we may find the time to post them to this website as well.
