The instructional day is 5.5 hours not including the duty-free meal period.  Opening exercises and student breaks (recess) are part of the instructional day.  

Supervision before school

As we are required to report to school 15 minutes prior to the start of the instructional day, we may be assigned supervision during that time.


The instructional day, exclusive of the midday intermission, shall be five and one-half (5 ½) hours or such time as may be determined by the Minister of Education and Advanced Learning and shall be worked consecutively except where alternative arrangements are agreed to by a representative of the Division, a representative of the Association and the teacher.
