The school saw overwhelming support on our Plaid Day. Students and staff wore plaid in support of suicide awareness. Four years ago, a former, plaid-wearing NDDHS student died by suicide. We now wear plaid in his honour and to show anyone else who is struggling that their North Dundas family understands their struggles and is here for them.
Last Friday, March 26, was also Epilepsy awareness day. On this day, people in countries all around the world wear purple to support epilepsy awareness. Canada is the only country in the world that officially recognizes March 26 as Purple Day. One of the primary efforts in raising epilepsy awareness is ensuring that people know what to do if someone is having a seizure. There are three steps to help them: stay with the individual, keep them safe, and turn them on their side.
There are only two four-day weeks before the end of the quadmester and the long-awaited spring break that now begins April 12. As we wrap up this quad, we would like to thank teachers and students for making this bizarre year amazing so far. It is hard to believe there is only one quadmester left in the 2020-2021 school year.
