Like many schools in Toronto, Northlea sometimes makes the news. That can be for visits by important people like politicians (this year: Premier Wynne, Mayor Tory, Minister Del Duca, Director of Education Malloy, Board Chair Pilkey, Trustee Gershon and several others – read: here).

Other times, it is because of famous alumni, who also sometimes visit, like illustrated in a press report in 2004 about former Prime Minster Harper: here.

Today (Friday, May 5) Northlea made the front page of the Toronto Star because of a visit by an even more famous official … in 1969 (when many parents of current students were themselves in elementary school).
