Annual Grad Service Project

Each year, the Graduating Class of École Secondaire Notre Dame High School leads a Service Project. A charity is chosen and an event is designed to raise money for that charity.

This year, the chosen charity is RCMP Victim Services Unit. Our goal... to raise $40,000 for this local organization. Our hope, and the hope of RCMP Victim Services Unit, is to raise enough funds to purchase a trauma dog for the RCMP to assist with crisis situations.  Additional funds will support mental health initiatives. 

Our event will take place February 27 – March 4.  Each week day, teams of 8 students and their team teacher work together to complete challenges and earn points. The final days of competition will pose the biggest competition, student teams along with a team parent will compete in a 20 hour extreme scavenger hunt throughout Red Deer. The challenge; to collect all 2017 items on the list!  

All ND students, in any grade, and their families are encouraged to become a part of this proud Notre Dame tradition!  This year, for the fist time ever, we have invited alumni students and retired staff to join us.  2017 is Notre Dame’s  20th year.   It is the last year of Red Deer with one Catholic High School as St. Joseph’s opens in September.  We encourage anyone with a connection to Notre Dame to return, join the cause, support RCMP Victim Services Unit and have a great time!  

Each team must raise a minimum of $2017 to participate.  Prizes will be awarded to the teams that earn the most points and for those that raise the most money.   100% of our money raised goes to RCMP Victim Services Unit.   Notre Dame’s service project is a tradition - a tradition of school pride and giving back to our community.
