School Start Up


The first day of school is fast approaching, and we are very excited for the coming year, with the new Intermediate wing being opened. Construction of the wing has been going on for the past year, and will be ready for all grade 7 & 8 classes. 

We have sent messages home to all families, by voicemail and email, to let parents and students know what to expect over the first week or so of school. To view a copy of the document, please click here.

We're looking forward to September 8th, but in the meantime we hope that you all enjoy the last week of summer holidays!

Locker Day

Friday, September 4th

Students in grades 9-12 can choose their lockers on Friday, September 4th, beginning at 10:00 a.m. 

Each grade will be assigned a different entrance to the school to line up at. Signs will clearly indicate the entrances. When students enter the school they will first pay their student fees, and then will go to choose a locker. They then will return to the main foyer to register their locker and lock, and can then pick up their timetable. 

Students who are not able to come to Locker Day on Friday can send their student fees with a friend, who can then choose a locker on their behalf, and can pick up their timetable as well. 

Students who choose not to pay student fees, or for another reason do no choose a locker on Locker Day, will be given a locker the first day of school. 

Please note that student fees have not changed, and are $25 for student fees alone, or $55 for student fees plus the yearbook.

Students who need financial assistance for their student fees, should talk to Principal Harris. Students requiring assistance can still choose their locker on Locker Day.

LDH in the News

Stellar Students

The school year might be over, but some of our grads are carrying on as if it's just another day.

A simple deed by some members of LDH's ManUP! was noticed by a community member, posted on social media, and then picked up by one of our local papers.

Good job boys for making our community a better place!
