After 18 months of the pandemic, which offered very little in the way of normal life for high school students, North Toronto is finally starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. With a return to some extra-curricular activities, clubs and sports, the school is certainly buzzing, albeit more quietly than usual, and NT students are getting back to the things they love.
In athletics, the girls field hockey team was back in action, with practices almost daily and a near perfect record in their games. Intramurals featured prominently as well, allowing students to play competitively amongst classmates in soccer and ultimate frisbee. The winter intramural season is starting up, with volleyball and badminton beginning in early December.Continue reading Girls Field Hockey Has Near Perfect Record As NTCI Slowly Returns To Normal Life

Approximately 1,500 masks were delivered to North Toronto last month for students and the 2020 grads. The masks are a gift from the NTCI Foundation, which recognized the NT community needed a little boost in the face of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
The limited edition red and grey masks were produced by Soft-Masks, which is owned and operated by NT alumnus and Foundation board member Lisa Cain (’82) and her business partner Sue Fisher (’84). The masks, which are hand sewn in Canada, feature high quality adjustable elastics and are made from 100% cotton fabric.

This is a historic time for staff and students at North Toronto.
Many of the events and rites of passage that we took for granted are not happening.

Staff have had to quickly engage students in different modes of learning while still coping with their own personal lives.Continue reading A CRITICAL ROLE IN A HISTORIC TIME
