Dear <<First Name>>,

North Point Schools Acquires Land for Future School Campus

We are thrilled to announce that we have successfully acquired an incredible piece of land for the future site of North Point Schools. Formerly known as the ‘Whitaker Lands’, these stunning 74 acres include 24 acres of forest, creeks and a small portion of the Elbow River.

The land is located in Springbank where 101st meets highway 8.  It is just off of Stoney Trail (once completed) so it should be easy commuting for most, once the day comes.  

Although we have dreams of building a state of the art school facility and campus that can accommodate greenhouses and gardens, extensive athletic facilities, an outdoor education centre and an art studio, we are still a ways from shovels in the ground. For the time being, North Point Schools will continue to operate out of both the Richmond and Currie campuses. We have secure leases in place and a plan to manage our growth in the years to come. In the meantime, this property gives us a place to explore, hike, run and learn. 

We look forward to working closely with our staff, students, parents and community members as we strive to realize this dream. 

You can access the full press release here.

Girls School

International Women's Day was last week on March 8. I'd like to take an opportunity to celebrate the achievements, both big and small, that our girls have made this school year. I'm proud to say we celebrate inclusivity and diversity in our classrooms each and everyday and we are honored to have this group of girls be part of our school.

That’s right–from the page to the stage in under 60 minutes! Theatre educator Aliza Sarian will introduce students to the various roles in a theatre process from directors and actors to designers and stage managers. This workshop will be the first step towards North Point’s new After School Theatre Club – get students excited about what’s possible. 

NEW After School Theatre Club

Passion Projects are an opportunity for students to research a topic, any topic, that they are passionate about. They will then present their research in a showcase set up at each campus.Currie students will present on Monday morning and Richmond students will present on Tuesday afternoon 1:00-2:00pm (PLEASE NOTE THE DAY CHANGES). Parents and family are welcome to come check it out. We are looking forward to seeing what our students are passionate about!

Ski Day

Our annual Ski Trip will take place on March 24th. We will be heading to Nakiska for the day with any student who has registered from Gr.

Physical Education

On the Richmond campus this week we enjoyed taking flight with some shuttles as we brushed up on our badminton skills in a "striking" unit.  Students have been Resourceful and Respectful throughout sharing ideas, trying new skills, and even having discussions and modifying rules to explore game play and keep things fun and interesting!  

We have also extended the experience to intramural badminton as a new noon hour activity for G5 5-7 students at the Richmond campus.  

This past Monday, we had our first ever in class floor hockey tournament at Visions Centre with all of the Gr. 7 and 8 students as part of their physical education program! This sets up well for the CISAA Championship Tournament which is next week.



We will start after school badminton practices for Grade 7 and 8 students after the Spring Break. Any students in Gr. 7 and 8 who are interested in being on the North Point Badminton team are asked to sign up using the following form:
