One way parents/guardians can make a meaningful difference for students is by participating on our school’s parent society. Under the School Act, a parent society is a formal group of parents, incorporated under the Societies Act for the purpose of raising funds for the school. A society is a separate legal entity from the school council. The school principal is not part of this group. More information can be found in our CBE Administrative Regulation 5001 – School Councils and School/Parent Societies.​​

Our Parent Society is Known as The Hamptons School Parent Society

Meeting Dates/Schedule

Society meetings are held in the school and typically follow scheduled school council meetings. Check our Calendar page for meeting dates.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is The Hamptons School Parent Society (HSPS) supporting gambling?

By volunteering for the casino event, the parents are providing an administrative service. Volunteers do not work as dealers, promote neither gambling nor gamble. The Alberta government, through the Alberta Gambling and Liquor Commission (AGLC), has decided that charitable organizations and certain community groups are able to benefit from casinos in return for providing volunteers that work primarily behind the scenes at chosen casino events.

Why should I consider volunteering?

The funds raised through casinos are substantial. Although other fundraisers may generate some funds towards helping our school, our last casino generated approximately $350 per student. Previous funds raised at our casino events have been $57,000, $61,000, $82,000, $94,000, and most recently $76,540. As a parent group, we have decided that the casino is a more effective means of raising funds than running a number of other fundraisers like selling chocolates or raffles, and the best part is that we only have to hold a casino every two years.

How have our children benefited through casino dollars?

Dollars raised have gone towards the enrichment and enhancement of our children’s daily education. Some of the items that have been purchased are:

  • TVs, DVDs, laptops, and SMARTboards to provide technologically advanced programming.
  • Performances and presenters to teach the school curriculum through other media, including sport's instructors.
  • Artists in residence brought into the school to enhance artistic and creative learning.

How can I help?

No prior experience is necessary and training will be provided to everyone. Volunteering at casino events is fun, and a great way to get to know other parents and staff of The Hamptons School. We could use your help to make our next casino event a success.

Please call the school for more information on how you can get involved in The Hamptons School Parent Society or to volunteer.
