ENHANCING CLASSROOM LEARNING AND A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE
At North Point School for Girls we believe that physical education, fitness, and wellness are at the core foundation of student development. We offer a multitude of competitive and non-competitive programming options to ensure our students are encouraged to live active and healthy lifestyles.
We Encourage Active Learning
Our expanded physical-education program recognizes the importance of physical fitness and a multi-sport mindset. Increased physical activity enhances classroom learning and a healthy lifestyle.
– Founder, Kim Pirie
We understand Girls
- Girls develop different skills at different times than boys.
- Girls mature earlier than boys, physically and socially.
- Girls process emotions differently than boys.
It is with this understanding that we have created an environment that celebrates girls’ strengths and interests, and nurtures their overall growth.
Positive Social Development
At North Point, we want to create a culture of achievement where discovery and development of a girl’s individual potential is paramount. It is critical that girls build resilience and a strong sense of self. Like in our boys program, mentorship is key.
North Point Navigator Athletics
North Point competes within the Calgary Independent School Athletic Association (CISAA) offering competitive teams for cross country running, golf, volleyball, basketball, floor hockey, badminton, and track and field. These competitive teams are open to students in Grade 7 and up and participation in school athletic teams is highly encouraged as we enjoy having so many diverse student-athletes within our student body.

Promoting student leadership, character and student excellence
We also offer structured intramural programming for students in Grade 3 and up, to provide an opportunity to compete in a variety of different sports and activities during their recess breaks. Intramural sports include fun inter-school leagues from floor hockey, basketball, soccer, dodgeball, handball, and some fun alternative drop-in options for students to participate. Participation in intramural league sports is encouraged by awarding students navigator points for their participation, as well as unique awards to promote student leadership, character, a demonstration of the 5 R’s, and student excellence.
