Discussion about the Future of the School

Dear Parents, Students and the NSS Community,

The administration of our school hopes that everyone interested in the “discussion about the future of the school” can attend the meeting announced by the Calgary Board of Education. The meeting will occur on November 18th at Markin MacPhail Centre from 6:00 to 7:00 pm for Parents and 7:15 to 8:15 pm for all other stakeholders.

This message was released from the CBE via School Messenger to NSS Parents at the end of October:​

The CBE has been proud to support high-performance student athletes as they pursue excellence in both their academic and athletic careers at the National Sport School. Through the program's history, it has operated in multiple locations.    NSS has been located in leased space at WinSport since 2011. As the lease is now coming up for renewal, students and parents are invited to join us for a discussion about the future of the school.

The meeting will include a short presentation followed by an opportunity to ask questions of CBE representatives Prem Randhawa, Acting Education Director, Area 1 and Carrie Edwards, Director of Property, Planning and Transportation.​

Please feel free to direct any comments or concerns to Mr. Rob Jewan, Acting Principal at rdjewan@cbe.ab.ca​

Sincerely,​

Mr. Rob Jewan

Principal (Acting)​

Welcome

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! It has been a busy start up but everyone has managed to successfully navigate student course changes, Camp Chief Hector sign up, our first parent evening, and recent staff changes.  The staff and students of the National Sport School are embracing our “Culture of Excellence” by being adaptable and mature during this first week. This is a great tone to start a new year at our school.

 We will be making the trip to Camp Chief Hector this Thursday and Friday; it is there that students build lasting friendships and memories.  We appreciate that families and coaches allow their athletes to attend this amazing experience. It truly is an invaluable start to every school year.

 This year the National Sport School wants to continue to build strong communication within our community. As a principal, I encourage you to use the tools the Calgary Board of Education provides to assist everyone.  Our school uses email, Desire to Learn, PowerSchool, Teacher Advisor program, interviews, Meet the Teacher, a wonderful front desk team and much more to enhance information sharing between the student, teacher and parent.  I hope that you can find an avenue that will develop a positive responsive relationship within our organization. To kick start this positive connection, I encourage every parent or guardian to attend our annual Meet the Teacher evening on Wednesday, September 18th at 7 pm.

 Finally, stay tuned for more information about the ways we are going to celebrate our 25th anniversary.  It is a significant milestone that should not go unrecognized.

 Mr. Rob Jewan, Acting Principal
