 Girls Night Out 2018

2018 Girls Night Out was full of exciting growth and energy.  This year we were fortunate to have a trip to D-Town Fitness, a hairstylist Alanna Japp, a female police officer Constable Pam Fouquette, a teacher graduating from the Suntep program Renee Prefontaine, Yoga instructor Molly Schikosky, as well as our very own amazing Kadie Galambos who is an established karate sensai.

A HUGE thank you to all of our sponsors this year.  We give a big shout out to the Dalmeny Buy & Save Mart, D-Town Fitness, Dalmeny Bible Church, Dalmeny Community Church, and Dalmeny Ag Foods.  We greatly appreciate all of your donations everyone.   Without your support, we would not have had such a successful and invigorating experience.

We must also thank Aurisha Brown and Makayla Robinson as they were our awesome mentors this year.  We greatly appreciate how considerate you were to donate your time and attention to a group of young ladies who enjoyed spending quality girl time together.  Thank you Aurisha and Makayla.

Thank you to the participating ladies for letting us be a part of a unique, exciting, and growing experience.  We loved spending extra time with you and getting to know you even further.  Until next year!!!!

Mrs. McLean and Mrs. Norberg

 

In Motion Day

School Community Council

There will be an election for SCC on May 17.  If you are interested in hearing about SCC, or letting your name stand, please contact Andrew Merryweather or Quincy Adrian.

Thank you for your willingness to serve.

 

 Senior Girls Basketball

 History has been made – the Senior Girls qualified for HOOPLA in Prince Albert on March 23, 24th! 

It started with 2 big wins at Onion Lake, defeating Maidstone by 30 points to capture the Conference Title.

The following week the girls defeated Kamsack easily and went on to the Regional Final against Assiniboia. The game was tough and gritty and at the end the girls won 64-52 to qualify for Hoopla.

At Hoopla, the girls represented DHS so well. They lost their first game to a tough number one seed Regina team, and the next day battled hard against Lumsden. They lost the bronze medal game with Lumsden by 5 points. What a game! We are so proud of the Senior Girls and the 31-3 season that they had.
