Last Friday, March 5, was our Dundas Cup spirit day competition against Seaway DHS. The Dundas Cup is our annual hockey tournament between the two schools here in Dundas County. It is one of the events our students look forward to the most. This year, our student councils collaborated to create a spirit day that would honour the Dundas Cup tradition and keep the incredible school spirit that we put into it every year alive. The competition winner was to be the school with the highest percentage of participation. The results were unexpected, to say the least. Seaway had a whopping 70% participation, and we beat them by no more than 1%, with a total of 71% here at North Dundas.
Congratulations to both schools, as those are impressive numbers regardless of who won. We enjoyed the friendly competition; perhaps days like these will become a new tradition and continue in the years following Covid-19.
This Friday, March 12, we have a frontline worker-themed spirit day, to show our support for the people who put themselves at risk for us every day. Frontline workers include, but are not limited to, health care workers, grocery store workers, first responders, and teachers. We planned this day to show that we appreciate what these people are doing for us during these challenging times.
