What we do?

MISSION – The Neerlandia Public Christian School Council and Neerlandia Christian Education Society provides advisory support to the principal to further our children’s Christian education and understanding of God’s presence in all aspects of life.


1. Encourage excellence in learning, holding the Bible as the infallible Word of God.
2. Provide a strong support network of parents, guardians and community members who care about the students, staff, and school.
3. Actively participate in school life and discuss current issues pertaining to the school.

NPCS is a unique school in which the community and parents/guardians are keepers of the vision that drives us. The School Council’s role is to provide community input and advise in order to support the education of the students. The Christian Education Society is our community promoting and supporting the Christian character of education at this school.

The NCES (Neerlandia Christian Education Society) ensures that the teachers have access to Christian curriculum resources and professional development, including the Prairie Centre for Christian Education’s annual teacher’s convention. The Society subsidises bus costs for students from Barrhead and outside the Neerlandia attendance area.

As a parent you have the opportunity and calling to be actively involved in the school through the School Council and NCES board. Please consider prayerfully how you can support us as we seek to serve you in your children’s education.
