NPSS Volleyball Invitational Tournament

NPSS Vball

NPSS volleyball is in full swing this weekend, as 14 teams are on hand hoping to play for the final match point!  The opening game, which saw the Sr. Girls team host the Peace River Nomads, started with a special presentation which recognized an NPSS alumni volleyball player from the class of 2009~Dana Cranston!  Our Ookapiks shared a moment with Dana before their first game…a game that seemed to be fueled by Dana’s inspirational message during the presentation!

The tournament will run all day Friday and Saturday so make sure to stop in and cheer on the home team! Go Ookapiks…Go Oscars!!!

Another new school year has started, and with that, SHAD is rolling out its brochure and awareness campaign to allow exceptionally bright students to compete for a place in their 2015 summer program. Their brochure will be available soon!
“Students who attend SHAD tell us year after year how much the program changed them, from their confidence, to meeting and working with other exceptionally bright students, to being exposed to challenges in science & engineering, to working in groups, and experiences that they have not been exposed to before. Indeed, it is a transformational experience. “
  1. It cost nothing for the student to apply.
  2. It is a great opportunity for your students to get a first-hand look and feel as to what will be expected of them when applying to university, and they can dust off their SHAD application and use it for university later.
  3. Bursaries and scholarships are available. No student is ever turned away because they could not afford to go to the program. We know exceptionally bright students come from all socio-economic backgrounds and believe that there should be no barriers to ensuring students reach their full potential.
  4. Students will get an opportunity to be with 50 exceptionally bright students from across Canada for a month, living in residence at a host university campus.
  5. SHAD is not a “CAMP”, it is an experience that the student will continue to benefit from, with their network for life.
Please visit their  website for more information. If you have any questions, please email info@shad.ca.
