Northern is a special place

The NSS Foundation is a passionate group of alumni, teachers and parents. We give our time to enrich student life at Northern. Our focus is three-fold: administering Scholarships to students, awarding Grants to student groups who deserve extra support, and building Alumni Connections.
Since opening its doors in 1930,Northern has fostered the talents of many. Did you know that Northern was the first high school in Toronto to have a students council? The school's vibrance and inclusive heart, it would seem, was put in motion from the start. Past, present and future, these are our stories.

Jim W. Davison NSS’76 Honours Fellow Red Knight

A big thank you to Jim Davidson who, in 2020, made another generous contribution to the Jim W. Davidson Scholarship Fund, in memory of fellow Red Knight Dave McClintock who passed away in April. Now, two university-bound Northern students – who have demonstrated integrity of character, respect for their peers and who possess the ability to lead others – will receive the Jim W. Davidson Award. Jim Davidson is one of Canada’s most distinguished leaders in business and philanthropy.
