Notes from NDDHS

We hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving, and enjoyed their long weekend. This past week North Dundas hosted many sports. Senior girl’s basketball team played on Wednesday, October 4. They did their best but were defeated by Holy Trinity. On Thursday, October 5 the girls 7s rugby teams competed against visiting schools. Although both of our teams played their hardest, only one of them won a game.

The second annual North Dundas Cross-Country Invitational took place on Friday, October 6. With 18 schools and over 300 kids, the day was a success thanks to everyone who volunteered their time to help out. Tuesday and Wednesday were the last two days to buyout for the student vs. staff baseball game. Don’t forget to wear blue and white in support of the student team, who hopes to be the champions this year. Ridgetown College will be visiting on Wednesday, October 11 at 9:20 for any grade 12s interested in hearing about the school. Glow dance sales start Thursday, October 12, and the dance will be taking place on Friday, October 20 from 7p.m. to 10p.m. Don’t forget to bring in food for the food drive. Your last day to do so will be Friday, October 13. Stay tuned for more news from North Dundas.
