North Dundas would like to acknowledge the amazing work of both the junior and senior bands, as well as the junior choir. The musicians represented North Dundas at the Kinsmen Music Festival in Cornwall last week. The junior band received a silver medal for their efforts, the senior band earned a gold medal, and even though it has been over a decade since North Dundas has sent a choir, they achieved a gold medal.

The OSAID team organized the annual MADD presentation that took place last Thursday, April 9. The presentation taught students about the repercussions that driving impaired can have on someone’s life.

The grade 7 and 8 boys’ basketball team represented North Dundas last Friday, April 6, at their regional tournament at North Grenville District High School.

Soccer, baseball, softball, and track and field practice and tryouts have all started in preparation for their upcoming seasons. Good luck to all athletes and congratulations again to all the musicians that represented North Dundas.

In honour of the families that lost their loved one’s last week, North Dundas asks that students wear a jersey to school to support the Humboldt Broncos in this devastating time.
