With last week being the first week of December, students are getting excited for the Christmas break. However, the students and staff have other activities to attend to before the long-awaited break. Many students participated in various sports last week, such as hockey, curling, basketball, and volleyball. On Mon., Dec. 3, the girls’ hockey team played two successful games against Tagwi and La Citadelle. The devils won with a score of 1-0 against Tagwi and 3-2 against La Citadelle. Well done, girls!  The next day, Tues., Dec. 4, the Senior Boys’ basketball team played a home game against Tagwi, losing on ND ground with a score of 50-21. Better luck next time, boys! The boys’ hockey team won both of their games on Wed., Dec. 5 against Seaway and La Citadelle. They had a close game against Seaway, winning 2-1, and an early lead against La Citadelle, winning 5-1. Congratulations to Ben Fingler for getting a hat trick (3 goals in a single game). Great job last week, boys! Also, on Wednesday, the Junior and Senior girls’ volleyball teams played against St. Joes and L’Heritage. The Junior girls successfully won against both opposing teams, while the Senior girls weren’t as lucky. Sadly, they lost both games. Thurs., Dec. 13, the Junior and Senior girls are back in action. We wish you girls luck! The curling teams had their first game of the season on Thurs., Dec. 6. Our boys’ team placed first in the A side. Our two girls’ teams also won their sides, Team Cave winning the A side, and Team Cooper winning the B side. All three teams move on to regionals!

On Wed., Dec. 5, we had our first dance of the year. We had some issue with lack of interest in dances last year, but luckily, we had more interest this year! The glow dance was a success! North Dundas thanks all students in attendance, staff who supervised, and student volunteers. O’Grams are now on sale and have been since yesterday. Come outside of guidance at lunch and purchase your O’Grams for $2.
