Principal's Message


Dear Parent(s),


I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Miss Bailey King on her new assignment as the Assistant Principal of Ecole Pine Grove School in Edson. Her positive attitude and work ethic will be missed at Niton Central School, we wish her all the best in her new career challenge.


As final assessments/exams approach for this school year, GYPSD has taken a proactive approach in dealing with the disruptions in instruction time. Please read below.



"Grande Yellowhead Public School Division takes a growth-centred approach to final exams and final grades. GYPSD teachers are highly qualified professionals who take into consideration each student’s situation, and the context of the current school year. Final exams continue to be an opportunity for students to show their overall growth in subject areas.

For this June only, final exam results will not be used if they negatively impact a student’s final grade. The usual weightings of final exams will resume in the 2021/22 school year".


If you have any clarification questions please contact your child's teacher, Miss King or myself.


Below is the video for our grade 9 students as they move over to Parkland Composite High School. You will be receiving individual recommendations for you son/daughter for course selections from our Niton Central Junior High teachers. Students/ families who have questions or need help registering should contact a Career/Academic Advisor at 780-723-6035 or by emailing Jan Wiens janwien@gypsd.ca, Kristin Basaraba krisbasa@gypsd.ca, or Lindsey Gohmann at lindgohm@gypsd.ca

Learning In Action

Consensus never tasted so good!

The 5/6 continued to learn about the history of Canada, through looking at the consensus model that was used by the Iroquois Confederacy. Students were tasked to come up with their favourite ice cream flavour and sundae toppings. They were put into pairs first to come up with some ideas. They were then grouped together with another group to come up with the same. This continued to occurred until the whole class came back together with a final consensus. Students celebrated this aspect of democracy through having sundaes with their chosen toppings. They landed on vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce, Oreos, cookie dough and French fries.

Summer Fun!

With the recent opening of the pool all of our students are taking advantage of "good times" in their Phys. Ed. classes.
