River Hawk Spectator Expectations:
Students and adults are encouraged to show their school spirit and attend sporting events whenever possible as per the Dufferin-Peel Sportsmanship and Ethical Conduct Guideline. Students can only attend an event when there is teacher supervision in place. Students are expected to be in uniform or wearing Spirit Wear without school bags when attending an event. Students are expected to cheer and encourage the players on both teams in an appropriate manner. River Hawk students and adults are to cheer on their River Hawk players only, there is no place for any negative comments or negative cheers towards visiting teams or any of their players. Students who choose not to cheer in an appropriate manner will be ejected from the event and face future consequences.
River Hawk Field
The River Hawk soccer/football field is for school related use only. To ensure the field is safe for our students and it receives the proper growth opportunity, trespassers will be asked to leave. The cost related to the upkeep of the field comes from the school operating budget.
To ensure a safe and clean environment in our washrooms, students should refrain from inappropriate use of the facilities and ensure that they leave the environment in the way it is found at the beginning of each day.
The Peace Garden is a sacred place for gathering, reflection and prayer. The garden is maintained solely by Cardinal Ambrozic staff and students. Students are invited to visit the garden and respect the intentions of the garden.
