posted in: Home Page News | 0

One final reminder, DGH students, that we are asking you to wear PURPLE tomorrow!  Aside from PURPLE being a great colour (it is the colour of royalty, after all), wearing PURPLE shows your awareness of the right of children to be safe and have their well-being respected.  Our children are our legacy, so there are few, if any, goals more important than this day’s purpose!


You can check the link below for more information on Dress Purple Day.

DGH, let’s make our school a sea of PURPLE tomorrow!

DGH Wants Your Pop Tabs (For the Lions Club)

posted in: Home Page News | 0

DGH school community, we are looking for your pop tabs!  For the past several years our school has collected pop tabs, which are then donated to the Lions Club.  The Lions Club takes the pop tabs to a metal recycler and uses the money to support the training of service dogs for low vision individuals.  Last year was a huge success with our school collecting BAGS full of pop tabs!  This is definitely one of the causes that is easy to support and has tremendous benefit.


The Lions Club bucket for pop tabs is in our office – we are looking for your pop tabs!  Simply bring them in and add them to the bucket!


DGH – let’s see how many tabs we can collect over the remainder of the year!

There has been a great deal of discussion lately regarding the difficulty in obtaining enough skilled trade workers.  As well, there is concern that there will not be enough skilled trade workers in the future.  If you click on the link, you will also notice a push towards encouraging women to enter the trades.


Skills Canada is the organization which supports the always popular Cardboard Boat Race event each year!  The purpose of the event is to provide students with an opportunity to “think outside the box” and demonstrate their hands-on abilities and critical thinking skills.

Dress Purple Day Information


DGH’s students are a crafty group!  I have to confess (it’s Mr. Parish writing this post) that I am looking forward to seeing the creativity of our students on this day.  Purple is one of my favourite colours!  I am assuming that purple hair will be in evidence, but I am hoping that more than a few of our students will do even better than that!


Do the great job you always do, DGH!
