Please visit our COVID-19 page for the most up-to-date information. Our plan is subject to change throughout the school year as more information becomes available.​

One of the most important ways parents/guardians and community members can make a meaningful difference for students is by participating on the school council. Under the School Act, a school council is a collective association designed to advise the principal and the CBE Board of Trustees on matters related to the school. School councils have legislated advisory and decision-making authority. They are different from Parent Societies & Associations, whose main function is to raise funds for the school.​​ You can find more details in the CBE School Council Handbook​.​​​​

School Council

Meeting Dates/Schedule

As a new school that has opened during a pandemic, we are starting off slowly and would love as many parents to attend our meetings as possible.  We currently have three meetings planned during the school year.  If a fourth meeting is required, advance notice will be given to the school community.  If you are interested in being part of our School Council, please email Michelle Brinson at

#100thDayofSchool What our grade ones predict they will look like in 100 years!

What a great day! Getting the whole school together for a virtual assembly and reading of "Kindness is my Superpower" and creating a whole school display for #PinkShirtDay2021 to renew our commitment to choose to be kind!

Virtual Remembrance Day Assembly delivered in front of our 'Message of Remembrance' display by Mr. Scout! What a beautiful commemorative service!

Students at NLS investigated children's experiences at residential schools and considered how children should feel when going to school. Visit our news story on our website to learn more: #OrangeShirtDay #EveryChildMatters #CBEIndigenousED
