Ness' Got Talent

This Thursday, June 1, we will be celebrating some very talented Knights.  Our singers, musicians, thespians and Rubik's cube masters will be putting on a show like none other, and all for a great cause. Our social justice team has decided that they would like raise funds for The Children's Hospital Foundation and here's how you can be a part of it all.
At the end of the show, students will have a chance to donate to The Children's Hospital Foundation by putting their coins or cash in their favourite act's donation station.  The act that raises the most funds, will be named the winner of Ness' Got Talent.
The show will begin around 1:00 pm., families and friends of Ness students are welcome to attend.
