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 the Kerry Wood Nature Centre. Our goal... to raise $40,000 for this local organization. Funds will be used to help families rediscover nature.  

Our event will take place March 9 – 14. Each weekday, teams of 6 students and their team teacher work together to complete challenges and earn points. The final days of competition will pose the biggest challenge, student teams along with a team parent will compete in a 23-hour extreme scavenger hunt throughout Red Deer. The challenge is to collect all 2020 items on the list!  

All students, in any grade, and their families are encouraged to become a part of this proud Notre Dame tradition! Each team must raise a minimum of $2020 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 the Kerry Wood Nature Centre to support natureplay programming, Nature for new Canadians programs and to expand the Nova Chemicals Imagination Grove Nature Playspace.  Notre Dame’s service project is a tradition - a tradition of school pride and giving back to our community.

Forget the box... just think outside! Join us. Create a team – grab 5 of your closest friends. Donate to a team help us reach our goal of $40,000. Help to make a difference.
