Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2023-24 school year. We are looking forward to a great year as we continue our mission of being a Catholic community inspired to embody Christ, enable excellence and educate for life.  As we follow this year’s division theme “Inspired by Christ on a Journey to Encounter, Nurture and Serve. Inspiré par Dieu dans une aventure à découvrir, grandir et servir," we encourage all of our students to achieve at their highest levels as the staff of Notre Dame is here to support them throughout their high school journey. 

Our staff is looking forward to connecting and engaging with students as they create a faith-filled, safe learning environment where everyone is welcome. As we make Christ known to our students, we are very blessed to work alongside four parishes: St. Mary’s Parish (Red Deer), St. Vladimir’s Parish (Red Deer), Our Lady of the Assumption (Sylvan Lake), and Our Lady of Peace Parish (Innisfail).  We continue to strive to enhance our relationships between our parishes and families as we grow together in our Catholic faith.

Parents are viewed as integral partners in the growth and development of each student and are encouraged to be involved in the Catholic education of their children. We look forward to working closely with you and together, as a team, we will provide the best educational experience for our students. 

We encourage all of our families to check our school website or follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Youtube to stay up to date on the amazing things happening at École Secondaire Notre Dame.

Our school is excited and is ready for another amazing school year and I am honored to serve the Notre Dame school community.


God bless,

Ike Hanna
