Principal’s message

Welcome to Northern Dancer PS!

As a brand new school, opening in September 2018, we welcomed 650 students, 65 staff, and over 40 childcare families into our beautiful new building.  Our community is one of high expectations, alongside innovative and inclusive practices. We value each individual, and we work collaboratively to provide a space where everyone is welcomed.  At Northern Dancer, we are proud to be able to offer our students a wide range of athletic, art, social, music and tech opportunities.  Our academic standards are high, and we value your child(ren)’s success in and out of the classroom.

Thank you for the privilege of being on this journey with you.  We continue to strive to SPARK, CONNECT, and UNLEASH every single day here at Northern Dancer PS.

Yours in Education,

Barbara Speed; Principal
