The choral and music department organizes several performances throughout the year, including a choral trip that takes place in the spring. This department also helps students develop an interest in music with individual instrument instruction. Our Notre Dame Canadians Choral Group does several concerts throughout the year locally and across Western Canada.
The Drama Club produces two major productions each year. The first production, held at Christmas, features a classic Christmas story. The second production in the spring features a different story type each year. Auditions are open to all students.
The Multi Media Club offers opportunities for students to become involved in the digital world of photography, film, iMovie, yearbook and Gamebreaker (immediate video analysis tool for coaches). Thousands of digital photographs fill Notre Dame’s campus boards, webpage photo gallery, yearbook and iMovie productions. Students digitally document every activity on campus and take great pride in being the ‘memory keepers’ of this generation of Hounds and their families. Through thousands of hours of volunteer work, our Multi Media Club members can be seen with cameras in hand at the arena, on the field and in the classroom. Multi Media Club members earn a Saskatchewan Learning Special Projects credit that is combined with their academic credit total for graduation. Students need to complete required skills and earn a percentage grade.
The goal of the Outdoor Education program is to expose students to a leadership based and team building experience in the outdoors of western Canada. Students learn to plan, pack and work together on various challenging trips in all four seasons. They learn basic survival, backpacking, canoeing and meal planning, putting these skills to use in a real outdoor setting. At the end of the year, a five-day fly-in canoe trip on the Churchill River system completes the outdoor education experience.
