In 2004, MD travelled to Camp Wanakita with all of the Grade 10s for some experiential learning for the inaugural Wilderness North trip.  Students gained team building, problem solving and interpersonal skills while participating in outdoor activities including canoeing, kayaking, camp craft skills, and hiking.  This trip became an annual event from 2004 until 2019.

In September 2007 a group of MD Alumni organized a gala All Years Reunion held September 7 to 9.  

In 2008, Principal Ian Jones started the Tolerance - One School.  One Voice.  One World. initiative to raise awareness about the Holocaust.  Many school-wide events were held over the next four years.
