Kids in the Delia area are back to school on August 31 and they've got more classmates than last year.
Delia School Principal Silke Wissner said enrolment numbers are up this year.
"We have a relatively large kindergarten class this year. Last year we had six kids in kindergarten and this year we now have 14 registered; and we had a very small group graduate (Grade 12 last year)."
The Delia School promises to be busy this year.
"We have a music club that's going to be a little bit more active this year, I think. It started last year: this year we're going to add, perhaps, a choral element to it. [We have] sports teams, we have art clubs, we have yearbook," said Wissner.
This year, school started on the Thursday before Labour Day weekend. Wissner explained that this is actually a good thing for teachers and students.
"If you look at it in the sense of it being a few days to sort of get organized and for the high school kids to make sure they're in all their right classes and for teachers to sort of revamp what they had planned and now found out is not going to work."
Delia School, with the Elks Club, are planning a community breakfast at the school for September 7.
