Hazelwood Parents and Staff Association (HPSA) – who are we and what do we do?
HPSA is a registered charity run by a group of parent volunteers who organise fun events for our school community in order to raise much needed funds for our schools.
Over the years, HPSA has paid for:
- the installation of interactive whiteboards in many classrooms,
- new audio visual equipment for school performances,
- green and sensory areas for play
- updated the IT suite with Chromebooks and iPads.
We also fund smaller, but just as important things, such as resources to support children with varying additional needs, new musical and sporting kits, school garden maintenance, workshops to support kids with well-being and emotional guidance and much more.
How you can help?
HPSA relies on parents and members of HPSA to all help where they can. This can be from simply attending events or you can take a more active role in helping to organise events like the quiz, discos, movie nights, Christmas and Summer Fetes.
Every class in the school has two HPSA class reps who coordinate class activity – such a volunteers to man the class stalls at the summer and Christmas fayres.
To oversee it all as a charity we also have a yearly voted-in committee of parents who volunteer their time to be Chair, Secretary and Treasurer.
If you feel you can help please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org, follow us on Facebook and instagram, come to one of our twice-termly meetings
All parents at the school are welcome.
We always need new ideas, fresh faces and different perspectives and really welcome any support you can offer!
