 Senior Girls Basketball

It has been a quieter month of February for the Senior girls. We have played some very tough teams along the way and have very much improved our overall skill level.  Thanks so much to Jaide Gartner and Brent Baerg who handled the coaching duties at the Delisle tournament. The girls have suffered some injuries along the way and we hope for a speedy recovery.Hepburn will be playing us on March 7th in our gym and then we head to Unity for 3A Conference playoffs.

This is a unique and rare opportunity for young athletes to learn from players and coaches from the Professional, University and College ranks. Athletes will be given the opportunity to further develop their overall basketball skills and abilities and showcase their skills in front of current ACAC College and CIS University Coaches looking to recruit future players for their teams.

We are already accepting registrations! Availability will not last so do not wait to get your registrations in and be a part of the best basketball camp experience and opportunities Saskatchewan has to offer!

See you all in May & June!

 Alert Solutions

Implementation of Alert Solutions has taken place.  If you would like to change how you are contacted when there is an absence, please contact the school.

If your child is going to be absent, please contact the school – phone, email, send a note – your children are important to us and communication with you as the parent/guardian is important in the process of their education.


Job Opportunity

Dalmeny High School is looking for relief caretakers that would be available to start in September.   The person would fill in for the caretaker when they are unable to work.  We are looking for someone who is reliable, trustworthy and able to work without supervision.

If you are interested and you are a student, please contact the school for an application.  If you are interested and you are not a student, please apply on the Prairie Spirit School Division site as a substitute caretaker.  Looking forward to working with you.



Are those birds I see in the air around DHS? Nope! Just BIRDIES! It’s Badminton season again and the junior and senior teams are ready to hit the courts!
The senior team (grades 10-12) will once again be coached by Mr. Janzen and Mrs. Pepper-Martens will be coaching the juniors in grades 7-9.
For students and parents new to DHS, badminton players require a good pair of gym shoes, shorts, and a t-shirt to play on the team. The school has racquets and safety goggles for the kids to use during practices and games but some kids prefer to purchase their own, which can be kept in their lockers. No jewelry can be worn on the court.
Both coaches have their own methods for providing practice and game schedules to their players and would greatly benefit from parents who are willing to transport kids to and from games. If this sounds like something you’d be willing to do, please contact Mrs. Pauls at the office for the appropriate driving forms as they must be completed before any transport occurs.
Junior Players:
This is a learning team, so all players who commit to coming to practices regularly are officially on the team. Prior to when each games is set to occur, Coach Pepper-Martens will post a blank team roster on her door. Players who are able to make the game and organize rides will have the opportunity to sign themselves up until the blank spots are filled. This will ensure that everyone has an equal chance to play in our league games and grow as players.
Badminton is a short season. Aside from practices and games will be playoffs. During playoffs we can only court 16 players. In an effort to be fair, each player who has been dedicated to practices can choose to participate in a team competition to determine our top players. Those players will move on. The juniors will be wrapped by the end of April with playoffs scheduled for the last week. Anyone earning a playoffs spot must be committed to all three playoff dates as substitutions cannot be made.
Badminton is a fabulous sport where quick reflexes and even quicker thinking makes a winner. See you all on the court!!
Senior Players:

If you are interested in playing, there is a sign-up sheet at the gym, or you can talk to Mr. Janzen.
