Principal's Message


Pre-enrolment season is fast approaching! There are some significant changes coming this year that will impact some family's ability to access our school.  Due to enrolment pressures, effective for the 2020-2021 school year pre-enrolment, Svend Hansen School will be moving to a LOTTERY PROCESS for admission.  The Lottery Process will not impact students that are currently attending Svend Hansen School. For  details specific your personal situation, please contact our school office, or visit epsb.ca for more details

Registration for students new to our School Division and Kindergarten students opens on Monday, February 3.  To enter Kindergarten for the 2020-2021 school year your child must turn 5 years of age on or before December 31, 2020.  Again, please contact our school office for more information.

At Svend Hansen School we are continuing to build our community of learners with a strong focus on producing highly engaged and independent citizens. Our skilled and collaborative staff work together to provide our students with meaningful and engaging learning experiences in the classroom and throughout the school.

As a school that serves Kindergarten through grade 9 programming, we take a great deal of pride in creating a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere.  We believe in the success of all students and we accomplish this by providing high quality learning environments that challenge and engage our students, stafff and parent community.

We have created a strong sense of community in our building in which we celebrate the diversity of our school and promote high quality character traits in all our students.
