NDDHS update

North Dundas High School had a flurry of events and fundraisers during the month of December. The first major event of December was our Angel Tree fundraiser. It was concluded on December 15, and there were plenty of gifts addressed to children of all ages and genders that were donated to our local BMR. We thank all the staff and students who helped donate to our Angel Tree fundraiser, as you helped bring joy to disadvantaged families across the North Dundas area. 

The second major fundraiser of last month was the ND Closet in the Cafeteria. We had an enormous amount of donations, from clothing to school supplies to canned goods, to help support our students. Thank you to all of the volunteers who spent their time rejuvenating this space and organizing the donations. On December 20, North Dundas High School hosted an ND Christmas Band Concert for our talented student body to show off their immense talent. We thank our ND band for creating a wonderful night of Christmas songs and holiday joy. Following the Band Concert, the North Dundas Student Council ran the annual Gingerbread Contest. Since there was a great amount of creativity and passion put into these houses, it was a difficult decision to settle on a definite winner. In the end, Chelsey’s group won for the intermediates, and there was a tie for first place for Emmalyn Hutchinson’s group and Connor England’s group for secondary. 

Thank you to all of the participants and good luck next Christmas! For the final event of December, the NDDHS Student Council ran our Student vs. Staff volleyball game. We were so excited to see the two teams compete on December 22. We, the North Dundas Student Council, hope that everyone had a happy holiday and wish everyone a great new year. Students are now back in school to end our busy semester with exams and to get prepared for the exciting events of January and beyond.
