Thursday, November 25, our senior boys’ volleyball team travelled to Heritage High School to play in the semi-finals. The boys lost their first set, but came back to win their second set. They had a tough battle in the third set, and ended up losing. ND is proud of how far our seniors went and are glad that they were able to have somewhat of a normal season.
ND has supported prostate cancer this year by having a day where students and staff could create their own mask with a moustache on it! On November 30, students were given a mask to draw a moustache on to show their support to prostate cancer. Our halls were filled with moustache masks!
ND has two angel trees up this year, with LOTS of tags, that Student Council members helped set up and decorate after school. There is one upstairs for the intermediates, as well as one downstairs for the high school students. Students and staff have the opportunity to pick a tag off of the tree and make a difference in our community by purchasing a small gift to donate to a family that is in need this holiday season. Our angel trees will be available for donations until December 13. North Dundas will make sure that the big man in red will have a gift to deliver on Christmas Eve!
Our Student Council have been extremely busy and hard at work planning many festive activities for our students to participate in. A door decorating contest has been announced, where each morning class has the opportunity to decorate their classroom door for Christmas and will be judged by Student Council. The winners will be given their prize when we come back to school on January 3. Student Council has also planned a gingerbread making contests, where teams of 5-6 can enter to have 45 minutes to build the best gingerbread house they possibly can! Everything is supplied and our principals will be the judges!Grade 12 students have been working very hard to get ND’s Christmas concert together for the year. It will be pre filmed, but there is no doubt that it is going to be a great one! They are all excited for students and staff to watch it!
Have a wonderful start to your December!
