NORTH POINT SCHOOL IS PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE
OUR NEW ASSOCIATE PRINCIPAL OF THE GIRLS SCHOOL
Starting in August of 2022, Ms. Jenny Davidson will assume the role of Associate Principal of our Girls School. Our Head of School, Mr. Devost was very pleased with the amount of interest this opportunity generated, “we received resumes from over 40 candidates and interviewed an exceptional short list of people. Jenny’s experience as a teacher/leader, her approach to lifelong learning and her incredible passion and entrepreneurial spirit made her an ideal candidate for this very important position.” We are thrilled to have someone with Jenny’s passion, experience and educational background join our North Point team as the leader of our new Girls School.
Jenny is eager to start her new role in the Fall and shared the following with us, “Looking forward to having the opportunity to inspire girls and lead a progressive program is what initially caught my attention, but what sold me on the opportunity was how Brent and Kim spoke about their vision for education and how they described the staff who work at North Point. It sounded like a place I would want to be, and a place I would want my daughter to be!“

It was a glorious, sunny skies kind of day to spend in the mountains yesterday at Nakiska. Fresh air, hanging with friends and the gorgeous mountain views made for a fantastic day. Although we had one ski incident (we wish Tristan B-M a speedy recovery), we would also like to recognize some of our 3/4s, Nolan S.. Boe B.. and Matthew B., who were very Responsible and Respectful by showing tremendous calmness, courage and care for their buddy through it all.

Fresh off the Spring Break, we hit the ground running this week with a wide range of activities including the amazing ski trip on Wednesday.
On Tuesday our North Point Rugby team (Grade 7-10) assembled and had a great turnout and great success with their first practice. The session was led by coach and former international player, Stephen Thomas. He will continue to offer support as we move forward and we have scheduled another session with him next week (on Tuesday, April 12th from 3:30 to 5:00pm at the Richmond campus).
If your son has not signed up for this yet and is interested to learn more, please feel free to contact me or to simply follow and fill in the form using this link:

We also will have our North Point badminton teams involved in two separate mini tournaments on Thursday (Apr 7) after school. The Currie Campus (Sr) team will be traveling to the Lycee Louis Pasteur and the Richmond Campus (Jr) team will be heading to Tanbridge Academy. Both events run from 3:30 to 5:30PM. Good luck to all!

When Kristine Strange talks about fitness with her two school-age sons, she’s careful to focus on effort, rather than physical appearance.
“We talk about how strong our bodies are and how much work they can do, rather than what they look like,” she says.
Parents of sons may not realize the impact of comments and conversations about size, weight, and fitness, says Yolanda Evans, MD, clinical director of Adolescent Medicine at Seattle Children’s Hospital. Boys develop unhealthy relationships with food and body image nearly as often as girls, but their struggles are often unrecognized by parents and caregivers. Because traditional medical assessments for eating disorders are often gender-biased, the conditions may be underdiagnosed in males, according to Stanford University researchers.
