NDDHS update


submitted by Shealyn Elliott

These past few weeks at North Dundas District High School have been full with entertaining events and important fundraisers for our community. To begin our third week of October, our Student Council began its annual food bank to donate to the local Food Share in Winchester. As soon as we started our food bank, we had many students come in to contribute to this great cause. In the end, we collected almost 220 non-perishable items which surpassed our initial goal of 200 items. We are so grateful to everyone who donated and are thankful for this opportunity to support our community. North Dundas District High School also began our School Council’s Fall/Christmas Fundraiser to raise money for Student Wellness Initiatives, including clubs, sports, events, and other important programs. We are selling an assortment of gorgeous holiday wreaths and centerpieces to add warmth and festivity to your home this Christmas. We are thankful to our providers, the Bradford Nurseries and CC farms, for their contribution to our fundraiser. To end October, the Student Council planned two big, exciting Halloween-themed events. The first major event was the Halloween dance. The event was a night of creepy songs and creative costumes, creating a perfect atmosphere to fully enjoy Halloween. The Student Council prepared a frightening array of delicious Halloween treats and held a spooky costume contest. The honourable mentions for the results of this contest are Sophia Mcrostie for most creative costume and Preston Homes for scariest costume. The dance was well received by the student body, and everyone is ready and excited for the upcoming masquerade ball. The final event of October is our yearly pumpkin carving contest. The Student Council would like to thank Miller’s Farm in Manotick for providing our pumpkins this year. We look forward to seeing who takes first place in this contest and if the winners from last year will defend their championship. We, the NDDHS Student Council, look forward to our upcoming holidays and all the wonderful events to come, including the Christmas Concert, the Angel Tree fundraiser, and the Gingerbread House Contest.
