The NSS Foundation has a vision – of Northern grads reaching back to Northern to mentor, recognize student talent and drive an inspiring transmission of ideas and experiences.

In 2021, we connected Northern art students with successful alumni in the art and design world. Alum took the time to inspire students, share professional insights and deepen student understanding of pathways to success. Armed with rave reviews from students and teachers, we promise more of this in more subject areas in the year ahead !
The Foundation’s Instagram feed is full of alumni spotlights, inspiring students and NSS nostalgia. A recent highlight: a number of alumni came together in 2022 to honour drama teacher Debbie Barton-Moore with a scholarship in her name – $1500 will now go, each year, to an NSS grad who has had a lasting impact on the drama dep't and who will continue in the Dramatic Arts.
