Hello Northland Alumni and Friends,

Do not miss out on all the fun in the sun.


Our fourth annual Bowling Outing was a great success. This year we had 58 bowlers. A mix of alumni, family, NHS staff and current students. What a fun time! We also had a raffle, giving away several gift cards, a Palace bowling party worth $120, and 4 tickets to the March 9th Blue Jackets hockey game.

We are so happy that this event is growing, not only does it give alumni a chance to connect with old friends, but it offers the opportunity to interact with the current crop of NHS students and staff. 

We look forward to seeing everyone next February!
