Digitally Enhanced Classes at NDHS 2014-15

BYODWhat are Digitally Enhanced (DE) classes?

Students will have the option to enroll in digitally-enhanced courses for select subjects. These courses will cover the same content and curriculum as a traditional “textbook & pencil” course, however all students will be expected to arrive to class with their own eligible laptop or tablet (see below for recommended devices). At the discretion of teachers, students will use their device in class to enhance delivery of course content, lessons, activities and examinations throughout the semester. These classes are NOT self-directed or online courses.

Here is a list of appropriate digital devices for these classes here DE Device List

Tuesday’s Tragedy

We at the Calgary Catholic School District and at Notre Dame High School wish to offer our heartfelt condolences to the families, friends and loved ones of all those affected by the tragedy that unfolded early Tuesday morning. Our prayers are with you.

“Almighty ever-living God, to whom we never pray without hope of your mercy and love, be gracious to us and hear our prayers. Welcome into your loving care the young people whose lives were cut short by violence and embrace them with your mercy and love. Bring peace and consolation to the family and friends of all who mourn their loss and enable them to meet the lonely and painful days ahead in the strength of your love. Continue to bless and strengthen all who work in police and emergency services in our city that they may be sustained in their efforts to build communities of justice and respond quickly to the needs of residents. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.”

Girl Rising – Apr. 23rd @ NDHS

Girl Rising Poster2014

On April 23rd at 6:00pm, we will be hosting a screening of the film Girl Rising in the gymnasium.

Girl Rising tells of girls facing arranged marriages, child slavery, and other injustices we only read about here in Canada. But the girls in the film all have a common ally: education. By getting an education, they’re all able to change the course of their lives, breaking barriers and creating change. This film is a documentary that follows nine unforgettable girls each living in a different developing country. The film follows these girls who confront tremendous challenges and overcome nearly impossible odds to pursue their dreams. This film teaches us to ‘Do Justice’ not only in our own community but to become better global citizens.
