Dear NTCI Alumni:
As the Covid-19 situation continues to unfold, members of the North Toronto community and I feel it is necessary that we do our part while healthcare professionals across the country continue to risk their lives for our safety.
A few of my friends from Dartmouth have created a campaign in the USA called Fuel Our Heroes to raise money for healthcare professionals on the frontline.
This campaign has raised over $200,000 and that total is growing by the day. I, along with the help of fellow members of the NTCI Class of 2018, have decided to bring the campaign to Toronto.
The Fuel Our Heroes Toronto campaign has partnered with Sunnybrook Hospital, to gather donations for their COVID-19 Research Response Fund. This fund will use the money we raise to buy protective equipment, groceries, and gas cards for the hard-working staff who are desperately in need of our assistance.
We launched the campaign last week and have raised $3,500. With your help we hope that we can get closer to our goal of raising $10,000.
- Please visit our website, Fuel Our Heroes Toronto , where you can find more information about our campaign as well as a page where you can donate, or you can follow this link directly to the donation page: Donate Now.
- We ask if you could please SHARE this email with the NTCI community in a newsletter or email platform; this is our opportunity to make a difference.
- Your donations are essential to Fuel the Heroes of Toronto.
*We are partnered with Sunnybrook Foundation, a registered charity, and donations over $10 will receive an automatic tax receipt. Charitable Registration No. 899209118R0001*
Thank you for your consideration.

- Friday afternoon @ 2:00: Join your former teammates at our new NTCI home fieldl, 17 Broadway Avenue, as our North Toronto Norseman take on their arch-rivals, Malvern. Kick-off is at 2 pm.

Whether on the field, on the ice, or in the pool, NT has enjoyed success for many years. However, we need more resources to keep that tradition alive.
The North Toronto Athletics Committee (NTAC) was formed three years ago to meet that need. Made up of NT alumni, staff, and parents, NTAC’s mission is to connect the past with the present and build towards the future. It has raised over $10,000 since forming, and has helped purchase equipment for the weight room and team uniforms, as well as cover tournament fees.
But there is more to do.
Come to our next meeting on November 25 at 6.30 p.m. at NTCI Room 251 or contact Michael Colley at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out how you can support our athletes!
Do you remember the words of our school song?
Hail North Toronto! was a key feature of this year’s Red & Grey Day, NT’s annual celebration of athletics and school spirit. This year, each home form picked a theme to celebrate, then decorated their classroom and dressed up according to that theme. Each class sang the school song, and the different versions were then pulled together into two (mostly) spirited videos. Follow along with students in grades 9 and 12 and grades 10 and 11.
October 10 also featured assemblies, a hot dog BBQ lunch, and a performance from the school band. Of course, the day’s main attraction was a packed sports schedule, with students being dismissed early to watch different teams play throughout the day. A great day for NT sports, as the school won or tied every game: two field hockey, two boys volleyball, girls ultimate, girls basketball, boys soccer, and a football game.
The North Toronto Foundation has launched the Norse Club, a new monthly giving program. Whether it’s $50, $25 or $10, your monthly monetary gift that will help the Foundation continue its mandate of supporting current students at NT by providing scholarships and grants. Click here to learn more!
A 1989 reunion will be held on Saturday June 22 at 5pm at the Rose and Crown . More details to follow.
To celebrate “50 Years Later”, exciting plans
are in the works to hold a Class of ’69 reunion this coming October. At this point the exact timing
and location of the event is TBD although the tentative plan is to hold a
dinner event at a Toronto venue and include a visit to the new school.
To make sure you don’t miss out, watch the
NTCI Foundation website for more information and/or contact any of the
