Current Hamber catchment VSB elementary school students moving to Grade 8 at Eric Hamber
Registration for grade 8 will be facilitated by your child's current VSB Elementary School. Your family will receive a Hamber Grade 8 enrolment/course selection form from their current school. These are usually distributed in January of the school year before students enter grade 8.
Grade 9 - 12 Hamber catchment students currently attending a different VSB secondary school who wish to attend Eric Hamber
Please ask your current VSB secondary school for a transfer form to attend Hamber as your catchment school.
