What is the MHSA?
The MHSA is the parents’ association for both the infant and junior schools.
The aim of the MHSA is to enable parents to become part of the school community and help support the school in any way that they can. Throughout the year, we organise many events which raise money for the schools – most years we raise approximately £25,000.
What sort of events are run?
We try to organise a wide range of events, including the Winter and Summer fairs, fireworks night, film clubs, school discos, cake sales, coffee mornings, quiz nights, raffles and second-hand uniform sales.
What do we do with the money?
The money is distributed between the two schools to pay for additional resources that could not usually be paid for from the schools’ budget.
Most recently this has included buying 60 wonderful Chromebooks for the pupils to use in the classrooms, lockable mobile charging cart and some other goodies such as a play tent, layzee seat and trophies. In the infant school, the money went towards creating a learning garden with a lovely Wigloo*, log circle and campfire to encourage children to use natural resources to develop their creative play. Previously, money has gone into purchasing over £5,000 worth of new books for both school libraries. In 2015, the reception outdoor space was completely renovated using money raised by the MHSA.
Other purchases include playground equipment, musical instruments, digital cameras for each class and many other things to enrich your child’s education at Moss Hall.
Who can join the MHSA?
We would like as many of you as possible to become involved with the MHSA.
Involvement can take many forms: we need help with events, ideas for raising and spending money, practical support, donations of items for events … the list is endless. The more help we get, the more money we raise, the more our children benefit. Simple.
Everyone is welcomed and everyone has something that they can contribute. You don’t need any particular knowledge or skills and it’s a great way to get to know other parents and is hugely rewarding.
