    If your child is new to Edmonton Public Schools, you can register for school online beginning February 1, 2023. Visit EPSB.CA to learn how to register for school.  If your child already attends an Edmonton Public School, pre-enrolment will be open March 6 to April 14 on Schoolzone.

    Lottery process at Svend Hansen 2023 -2024

    Our school will continue to have a lottery process in place for new resident students enrolling at our school for the 2023-24 school year. This will not impact current students who attend our school and they can still attend.

    The school will not accept new registrations from families in the attendance area if the student is not a resident of Edmonton Public Schools. A student is considered a resident of Edmonton Public Schools if they have at least one parent who lives in Edmonton who is not Roman Catholic.

    Resident students who aren’t selected through the lottery process can attend the overflow designated school, Weinlos for grades K-6, and Kate Chegwin for grades 7-9, a school with space in planned classes, or remain at their current school, if applicable.

    Siblings of current students attending our school
    New resident students in the attendance area with a sibling returning to the school next year will get priority, but are not guaranteed to attend. 

    More information about the lottery process

    Watch the Growth Control Model video for an overview of the lottery process. You can also read more about the lottery process on the Edmonton Public Schools website. If you have any other questions, please contact our school office at 587-489-4724

Principal's Message

August 31, 2022

Welcome Svend Hansen School families and supporters,

I hope this communication finds you well. Summer always goes by fast and my wish for all of us is that we have had time for quality time together with our loved ones. My summer was wonderful and the weather cooperated nicely to spend many hours outside enjoying our summer weather. 


As the incoming principal, I am so very grateful for Mr. Ron Thompson and the leadership he provided for a new school community. He has left an important legacy of work which we are all the beneficiaries of - students, staff, families, community. Thank you Ron. 

I am communicating important information with you as you get ready to send your children to school tomorrow. Please take the time to read the information and contact the school if you need any clarity (587-489-4724). Please make sure you read and access all the information being posted on Schoolzone and check back frequently. Our team will be working hard to share important information daily.   

Looking forward to the school year ahead as we together support your children.

~ Christina Jones, BPE, BEd, MEd
