Norwell a busy spot as school year resumes activities for fall

Norwell District Secondary School has gotten back into the swing of things.

 Grade nine students were welcomed to Norwell at the annual Link Day. Grade nine students are matched up with older students and spend an enjoyable, fun-filled day at the school before their classes begin. Plans for next year’s Link Day are already underway. This event was attended by over 100 incoming Grade 9 students.

Norwell hosted its first school dance on Sept. 15 and a great time was had by all. The theme of the dance was Varsity Reds, and was a celebration of the new school team name.

Norwell’s varsity Sports teams have been hard at it with soccer, golf, tennis, field hockey, volleyball and basketball all progressing nicely through their seasons. The teams have all had some fantastic wins and a few disappointing losses but are amazing representatives of the school at all their events.

Norwell will again be offering a late bus service every Wednesday throughout the first semester. Students are invited to stay late and join in on some of the great activities taking place on these days. The bus will now leave Norwell at 4:45pm to drop kids off in Drayton, Moorefield, Harriston and Clifford.

The school’s new webpage is up and running. Parents and students are invited to stay informed about events and News from the school.

The annual Norwell Terry Fox run was held on Sept. 29. Staff and students participated in the walk/run in support of a great cause with their Toonies for Terry campaign.  The school raised over $2,500 for a great cause.
