Brennan Olsen Memorial Colour Run
The school will be hosting a Colour Run this year in remembrance of Brennan Olsen. The Colour Run will replace the Terry Fox run for this school year. The event will be held on Thursday, Sept 24th at 2:00 pm. The students will be given a commemorative t-shirt to wear during the run. We recommend that all students wear clothes and shoes that can be coloured. Water will be provided on the run.
This year is the 40th Anniversary of Terry Fox's Marathon of Hope and Neilburg Composite School is proud to be continuing the legacy of one of our greatest heroes. Any families and community members wishing to donate can send cheques to the school payable to The Terry Fox Foundation. Thanks in advance for your support!
Grad 2021 Bottle Drive
The Grad class will be having a bottle drive to fundraise for their graduation. They will be collecting bottles between noon and 6:00 pm on October 10, 2020. Bottles and cans can be left on your doorstep or driveway and the students will pick them up. They appreciate any donation and thank you for your support.
Due to severe allergies among the students at NCS, the school requires that everyone avoid bringing any items with nut products, eggs that are not baked into an item or animals to the school. Our students' health depends on your cooperation. Thank you.
