About Palliser's Hutterite Colony Schools
Palliser Hutterite Colony Schools
#101, 3305 - 18 Ave. North Lethbridge, AB T1H 5S1
Principal: Dan Ryder
Palliser has agreements in place to offer educational services to 17 Hutterite colonies within its jurisdictional boundaries. Schools are served by provincially certified teachers with varying years of experience, but a uniform sense of commitment to our children. Teachers are supported by two learning support teachers (Ann McCallum, Katie Wade), colony travelling art teachers (Julie Macklin,Katie Wade), a number of learning assistants and a variety of other division based service providers (speech/language pathologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, etc.)
The schools are directly supervised by the principal of Hutterite Colony Schools, and overseen by the Associate Superintendent – Education Services.
The student populations in our colony schools are generally very stable, and projections can usually be quite accurate. The greatest impact upon this is the practice of colonies to “split” when the population reaches a point where the elders deem it necessary.
The Brethren in the Palliser colonies are divided into the Dariusleut and the Lehrerleut sects.
