Dundas Cup Spirit Day was a huge success

Last Friday, March 5th, was our Dundas Cup spirit day competition against Seaway DHS. The Dundas Cup is our annual hockey tournament between the two schools here in Dundas County. It is one of the events our students look forward to the most. This year, our student councils collaborated to create a spirit day that would honour the Dundas Cup tradition and keep the incredible school spirit that we put into it every year alive. The competition was to be the school with the highest percentage of participation. The results were unexpected, to say the least. Seaway had a whopping 70% participation, and we beat them by no more than 1%, with a total of 71% here at North Dundas. Congratulations to both schools, as those are impressive numbers regardless of who won. We enjoyed the friendly competition; perhaps days like these will become a new tradition and continue in the years following Covid-19.

This Friday, March 12th, we have a frontline worker themed spirit day to show our support for the people who put themselves at risk for us every day. Frontline workers include but are not limited to health care workers, grocery store workers, first responders, and teachers. We planned this day to show that we appreciate what these people are doing for us during these challenging times.


Looking forward to Dundas Cup Spirit Day (March 3)

Something exciting is happening at North Dundas this week. On Friday, March 5, we are having a spirit day competition against Seaway DHS. In honour of our annual Dundas Cup, the theme of the competition is Jersey Day. Any jersey or school clothing will count towards our school’s participation. Just like the Hawaiian Day competition we had in the fall, the school with the highest percentage of participation will be the winner. Every year, students both here at North Dundas and at Seaway look forward to the Dundas Cup. Unfortunately, due to Covid-19, we cannot carry out this tradition in the way that we normally would; however, we can keep our friendly rivalry alive with a fun spirit day. Devils, if we put the same enthusiasm into this spirit day as we do when we are supporting our team at the Dundas Cup, there is no way Seaway can beat us!

Grade 8 and grade 12 graduation photos are coming up later this month. Grade 12 photos will be taken on March 23rd and 24th, and Grade 8 photos will be taken on the 25th. All remote learners and all grade 12 students must book an appointment; grade 8 in-person learners do not need to do this. For grade 12 photos, there is a $30 sitting fee and some adjustments from previous years due to Covid-19. There will be no pets or group photos allowed. For more information about grad photos, see the school’s Facebook page or your school email.
