Welcome to Rick Hansen PS!  Our staff, supported by families, is committed to creating safe, caring, and inclusive learning environments in which students can thrive.  Our goal is to improve student achievement and well-being through a variety of strong academic programs and extra-curricular activities.  Our entire school community works hard to provide our students the best education possible and all staff are prepared to assist students and families to ensure that we provide a positive educational experience and maintain high standards for achievement.

We are proud of our school and continue to work together to ensure it is a vibrant part of the community.  Over the years, we have worked to engage parents and students and ensure that all voices are included as we work to reach the goals we have identified.  We are fortunate to have a very supportive community and, in partnership with our Rick Hansen PS Parent Advisory Committee, are able to offer a variety of enriching experiences. Our work is aligned with our Director’s Action Plan around the four strategic areas of:

  1. Well Being/Mental Health 

  2. Equity and Inclusivity

  3. Collaborative Relationships

  4. Ethical Leadership

We are especially proud of our school name and work to honor Mr. Rick Hansen, a Canadian hero.  Our school mascot is the Lion which represents courage, strength and pride – all of the qualities that we value and attribute to Mr. Rick Hansen.  We believe that “We are difference makers!” and that when we work together to achieve a common goal we truly have an impact in our school and the community in which we live.  We look forward to working together to provide a positive learning and inclusive environment for each student at our school!


Yours in education,


Jaime Bunbury - Principal             Gregory Hambly - Vice-Principal
