Welcome to Nickle School

WE ARE LOOKING FOR 10 HOST FAMILIES FOR THE COLUMBIA STUDENTS ARRIVING FOR 6 WEEKS IN SEPTEMBER!! click here for forms and information. There will be an information meeting at Nickle School at 6:30pm on Thursday, March 5, 2015 in the main gym. Come and check it out!

Congratulations to the grade 6 and 7 Nickle School band students for their amazing performances at the Alberta International Band Festival on March 17th and 18th.  More than 50 bands participated in this years beginner band portion of the festival.

When being evaluated by the two festival adjudicators, bands can receive one of five overall ratings by each judge:


A small handful of bands each year earn a "Gold Award".  In order to receive this honor, a band must earn a Superior Rating from both judges.

This year the Nickle Grade 7 Concert Band was presented with a Gold Award for their achievements.

The Grade 6 concert band achieved a rating of Excellent from both judges which is the best result that a Nickle Grade 6 concert band has ever earned. 

Amazing work by our Nickle musicians

Reminder from Phys Ed staff


Just a friendly reminder from the Phys. Ed. staff. We are still planning to be outside all year (due to class numbers). Please ensure your son or daughter is dressed for the weather - ie sweat shirt, sweat pants, gloves. The weather is changing and it is cold in the mornings. ALSO, students are arriving at school NOT dressed for the weather. It is important that they are dressed for the weather because they may very well be waiting outside for a few minutes until the school doors are opened at 8:50am.
