Oilfields High School News: Fall Happenings

Driller Nation

On the evening of October 22nd, Oilfields School hosted a superb event called “Driller Nation” that highlighted why we have such a great school community. What a great turn-out; the stands were packed with fans. Huge kudos goes to our very own Mr. Bretzlaff who was the driving force behind the evening, to the parent volunteers who helped out and to all of the community businesses that donated very generous prizes. Congratulations to both the Junior Varsity and Senator Riley Boys Volleyball teams who played with energy, class and amazing talent!

Cinderella ProjectCinderella Gown Project

Ms. Morck is looking for names of Grade 12 females who might qualify for the Cinderella Gown Project. The Cinderella Gown Project provides the opportunity for young women in the Calgary area to be treated to a Cinderella pampering experience of choosing a gown and accessories for their graduation ceremony. This program was created to allow students in financial need or vulnerable circumstance to be able to experience their graduation banquet with style and dignity where they otherwise would be unable to do so. If you would like to nominate your child for this program please contact Ms. Morck at the school.
