Please visit our COVID-19 page for the most up-to-date information. Our plan is subject to change throughout the school year as more information becomes available.​

One of the most important ways parents/guardians and community members can make a meaningful difference for students is by participating on the school council. Under the School Act, a school council is a collective association designed to advise the principal and the CBE Board of Trustees on matters related to the school. School councils have legislated advisory and decision-making authority. They are different from Parent Societies & Associations, whose main function is to raise funds for the school.​​ You can find more details in the CBE School Council Handbook​.​​​​

Who Can Attend School Council Meetings? 

All parents/guardians are welcome to attend. Regular meetings are a communication venue to stay informed about your child’s school. Each meeting, students provide a comprehensive up-to-date report on the activities of each grade. The Principal also advises parents on school finances, technology and development plans, curriculum highlights and special events, as well as CBE announcements that may impact The Hamptons School.

What Does a School Council Do? 

Our school is comprised of parent volunteers who meet every second month during the school year to assisting in planning parent and student activities, initiate and organize special events and fundraising initiatives, advise and approve funding expenditures, bring forth parental concerns and ideas to the school administration, and share information from the staff. The School Council represents views of the parents. Most importantly, the School Council helps make a positive difference in the quality of education our children receive. School Councils cannot apply for a gaming license so it does not organize casinos. 

The Hamptons School also has a Parent Society that is solely responsible for undertaking this important fundraising initiative that makes possible many programs such as Artist in Residence programs, cultural events and technology improvements.

We strive to:

  • Continually build a sense of school community and spirit through fun events like Sports Day and the school Yearbook.
  • Encourage parent education which supports our children’s learning.
  • Recognize and honour the work of our teachers and administration by organizing a Staff Appreciation luncheon.
  • Support the Welcome Back event to foster a strong, vibrant community spirit.
  • Encourage environmental awareness through recycling programs.
  • Support our teachers and administration by encouraging parent volunteerism and coordinating classroom, administrative and other support roles.
  • Maintain a relationship with our Calgary Board of Education Trustee and the CBE to advocate for and address issues important to the Hamptons School.
  • Assist in resolving parking concerns and  to help promote safe parking practices.

How Can You Become a Member of The Hamptons School Council?

You are a member, just by being a parent/guardian of a student at our school. There are many opportunities for you to get involved such as attend School Council meetings, participate on short-term committees, help at special events, or become a School Council officer.
