Leadership Students Support
Big hearts at Notre Dame
On Shrove Tuesday, staff and students at École
Secondaire Notre Dame High School held a pancake
breakfast in an effort to raise money for Naah, the
school’s foster child in Ghana. Everyone enjoyed the
social gathering and the hot breakfast. The $2
donations from everyone who attended raised over
$350 for Naah!
This week the Leadership students of École
Secondaire Notre Dame High School helped support
Alberta Olympians by creating a banner with over
500 signatures and words of support. The banner then
traveled to Vancouver with teachers Madelene and
Lee Caine. It is on display at the Alberta House for all
visitors to see!
Notre Dame High School has been home to many
Olympians, such as Long Track Speed Skater Jeremy
Wotherspoon and Luger Reagan Lauscher!
Thank you to all the students and staff who worked on
sending best wishes to Canadian athletes. You have
made it possible for our entire Division to be in
Vancouver in spirit!
Thank you to students and staff, including Mrs. Jennifer
Koffin, for organizing this successful fundraiser and preLent event!
