Alanna Minchin, our lone NSS representative at the BC School Ski & Snowboard Provincials in Sun Peaks (Kamloops), has once again made us so proud! Alanna raced in the GS yesterday and placed 18th overall (out of 55 racers) and today in the Terrain GS, she placed 5th overall. Such an amazing way to finish her school boarding career. Safe travels home Minchins!

Today is Pink Shirt Day not only at NSS but all of Canada.

Pink Shirt Day is an annual event against bullying, held in Canada and New Zealand. Participants wear pink shirts and attend or host informative events to raise awareness about bullying, particularly in schools. Pink Shirt Day was started in 2007 in Canada, where it is held on the last Wednesday of February each year. Our NSS Student Council is helping raise awareness by wearing pink, distributing pink toques, socks & shoe laces to all our students and asking all students to sign a pledge to help end bullying in our school.

To support putting an end to on-line bullying, NSS has gone cell phone free for today only, as a trial for next year's government legislation.

What is cyberbullying? Bullying through electronic means. There are many forms, including harassment, impersonation, outing, cyberstalking, and denigration, but all exist – at least in part – in the digital world. Cyberbullying can often feel even more overwhelming than traditional bullying, because access to a target is 24/7. If you think you’re being targeted online, or know of a friend who may be involved, take a look at the following steps to help you stay safe online. And most importantly, THINK before you post.

Respect Matters

Nakusp Secondary School opened in 1957 and is one of six schools in School District 10, Arrow Lakes.  It has a current school population of 149 students and 25 staff members. Students come into Grade 8 from the elementary schools in Nakusp, Burton  & Edgewood.

NSS is very much at the heart of Nakusp’s community with generations in the village having passed through the hallways of the school. This means that the community is very generous in the time it gives to the school whether through coaching school teams, mentoring students in work placements, volunteering time in class, sharing expertise or attending monthly PAC meetings.
