NPSC Celebrates a New School Year!

Over the past two weeks, we have witnessed students, staff and families return to our schools to usher in the new 2023-2024 school year. At NPSC, we wanted to celebrate and share all of the excitement in our district by inviting our community to share their back-to-school memories and favourite moments by using the hashtag #WelcomeBackNPSC!


We have seen many happy faces, full classrooms and engaging activities, all embodying the spirit of Catholic Education!

St. Victor's New Library and Librarian!

Students returned to school with new goals, new friends, new teachers and new community members. One of these new additions is parent volunteer, Mrs. Carmichael, who is supporting the Library at St. Victor School. We extend a big thank you to all our volunteers in our NPSC schools!

During the month of September, we have come together as strong Catholic community through Open House events, welcoming all new students and parents/guardians into our NPSC family!
