Opening Day – Semester 2

Opening Day Semester 2

Regular bell schedule (day starts at 8:25am and ends at 3:05pm). Individual student schedules may have changed from original timetables distributed in September.

Students will find their Homeroom lists (Block A classes) posted in the Pearson foyer and hallway. Locate your name and A block class and proceed straight to Block A.  Semester 2 schedules will be distributed by Block A Teachers.

Counsellors prioritize appointments this week based on missing graduation requirements, courses failed in Semester 1 that could impact Semester 2 courses, or an incomplete schedule. No other course change requests can be accommodated.

Throughout the day January 29th we will have Grade based Assemblies. Students will be called by grade throughout the day.

All Grade 12’s have an assembly at 9:05am in the Massey Theatre (even those with a study block). Important information will be shared regarding graduation.

Grade 9 through 11 students will attend an assembly and have an opportunity to spend time in our course promotional event. This is meant to provide students an opportunity to learn about the many different offerings available at NWSS.

Open House – Tuesday January 30th MASSEY THEATRE

6pm to 8pm

The course promotional event offered above will be available beginning at 6pm in the Massey Small Gym. At 6:45 in the Massey Theatre we will begin a formal presentation of the attributes and general programs offered at NWSS. This will be followed by a further opportunity to browse the course promotional event which will wrap up at 8pm.


The NWSS Musical Theatre Program, School’s Out Productions, is pleased to present The New Gershwin Musical: CRAZY FOR YOU!  This romantic comedy tells the story of dreamer Bobby Child, a New York City banker who longs to perform on the stage.   When he is sent to the sleepy town of Deadrock, Nevada to foreclose on a theatre, he meets Polly Baker whose father happens to own the theatre and he falls dramatically and hopelessly in love with her.  Audiences will be taken on an entertaining journey filled with cunning wit and mistaken identity as Bobby attempts to win Polly’s heart and save the theatre.  The show features many Gershwin classics such as: “I got Rhythm,” “Someone to Watch Over Me,” and “Slap that Bass.”  Buy tickets now
