Message from Mr. D
Thank you Parents and Staff
Thank you to all of our amazing parents who have been so diligent and committed to Covid testing and for maintaining open communication with the school. We appreciate all of the precautions you are taking to keep your family and others around you safe. You have been so Respectful of the school environment.
Thank you to our incredible teachers and staff who continue to go the extra mile with students as they monitor their own symptoms, take care of their families and balance the job of keeping the school safe with ongoing mask reminders, while also supporting our students in-person and at home. You have been Relentless in helping the boys through this trying time.
One of the key strengths of North Point from our very beginning, has been the teamwork displayed by all of our stakeholders and the mutual respect our parents and staff have for one another. We’ve really had to lean on each other over the past couple of years and today in the present is no different. With that continued strong bond, we will get through this with/for the boys and move onward and upward.
Thank you Teachers and Parents!
Amid the updates and highlights from our Townhall on Tuesday, we were told that back in September there was a points calculation error in our favour. This means our golf team did indeed win the gold and will therefore be receiving the banner to hang in our gym! Belated congratulations to our golf team!
The winners of our 5R draw this month were Connor S. at the Richmond Campus and Mikaill at the Currie Campus. We hope you enjoy your McDonalds treats.

This was the second week of Curling practice. Schools from across the city met at the Huntington Hill Curling Club to discuss the season as well as host individual school practices. Our North Point Boys team had a great outing. With assistance from a club coach, Chris Pratt, they had a successful mock match – learning about the game and practicing their shot making ability.
