Creative Spirit Day for ‘Movember’

by Jamie Wilson
NDDHS Minister of Communications

This month is Movember, a month dedicated to raising awareness of men’s health issues such as prostate cancer and male mental health and suicide. Due to the pandemic, we cannot see all our male teachers growing out their facial hair in support of the cause, but we have found a creative way to raise awareness. Students have been asked to decorate masks with moustaches. On Thursday, we will all be wearing our moustache masks for Moustache Day!

Last week was Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week. Bullying and harassment can seriously impact a student’s learning, make them feel unsafe, and affect the school climate. We would like to thank all the staff and students at our school who stand up against bullying and support our students.

As the end of November approaches, we are entering into the holiday season. ND is excited to continue working on our Covid-style Holiday show, as well as all our upcoming spirit days in December.


Denim for Diabetes: A Fun Spirit day with a Cause (Nov. 18)

It has now been a week since we started our second quadmester. It has been an adjustment for everyone to move so fast into our new courses, but students and teachers are transitioning well to the new routine.

November is Diabetes Awareness Month, so we are having a Denim for Diabetes day on Friday, November 20. This month is meant to bring attention to diabetes and to support the one in three Canadians currently living with diabetes or prediabetes. We are showing our support for those born with diabetes or who develop it in their lifetime with this fun spirit day.

Last week, Grade 12 students here at ND got together at lunch to discuss the Holiday Show that they normally put on for the school. This year, the show will be done as a video to be played in the classes. Thankfully, there are many grade 12’s willing to help safely put on the show so we can keep this tradition alive despite the pandemic.

NDDHS school clothing is available now. All orders must be in by November 23.
