    Registration Information 2021-2022


    Thank you to families who indicated they would like to attend Soraya Hafez School for the 2021/22 school year during the pre-enrolment period (February 2- April 15).  We have now contacted all families that live outside of South McConachie. If you live in McConachie South then your child was accepted as this is your designated school. For those families that have been accepted for next year, please watch for details about a virtual Kindergarten meeting that will be held on the evening of May 6th.

    Soraya Hafez School is full in planned classes in Kindergarten to Grade 6 in the regular program. We will now only accept resident students who newly move into the school’s attendance area for the regular program. A resident student of Edmonton Public Schools has at least one parent or legal guardian living in Edmonton who is not Roman Catholic. Non-resident students can enroll in another Division school with space in planned classes.

    If you are registering for Kindergarten or if you are new to Edmonton Public Schools, you must register online.

  • Parent Participation

    Parent Participation

    At Soraya Hafez School we believe that education is a partnership between home and school. Parent involvement is strongly encouraged and appreciated. Parents can:

    • encourage their child to talk about what they have learned and celebrate their achievements.
    • be acquainted with the teacher and other school staff.
    • attend various functions that are held at the school.
    • help with field trips and special events.
    • attend student progress conferences and talk to the teacher when there are questions or concerns.
    • contact the principal if they have a concern or wish to share a special event in the child’s life.
    • attend School Council meetings.

    Parent Council

    The Soraya Hafez School Council gives parents an opportunity to come together to provide support, enhance student learning and to promote the well-being and overall effectiveness of the school community.

    An active School Council facilitates the school/home/community partnership and helps to develop an atmosphere of mutual cooperation through active participation in the school.

    The School Council supports meaningful parental involvement, which we know supports student success!

    Everyone is welcome at monthly meetings so please watch for start up dates in the Fall.

    Soraya Hafez Fundraising Council

    The Soraya Hafez Fundraising Association is a group of parents that works closely with the School Council and initiates fundraising experiences which support the educational experiences and programming at our school!

Welcome to Soraya Hafez School

At our school, we want to honour our namesake Soraya Hafez for her passion for education by creating an exciting and successful learning environment for students from Kindergarten to Grade 6. We were thrilled to open our doors in September of 2020 and can’t wait to welcome families into our school community for our second year in 2021/2022!



Principal's Message

It has truly been an honour to open Soraya Hafez School! This continues to be an exciting time as we come together to create a school in which our community will be proud. Soraya Hafez believes that education is a lifelong journey and that everyone is a learner. Soraya Hafez School is a beautiful and energizing space, consciously designed in ways that stimulate and motivate young learners. It is a state-of-the-art learning environment which promotes collaboration among students, staff and community. Our school focuses on the well-being of every student who walks through the doors. Together, we create a sense of belonging where students feel safe, cared for, challenged and inspired to be their very best!
