Friends of Hillside Association

FOHA is a valuable asset not only to the school and the staff, but also to the children and parents as it gives us all a common cause to join forces for the good of the school. The committee and helpers are a valuable team, who donate their time and talents to support our school as much as possible. They have contributed greatly over the years, providing help materials and equipment with the fund raised, items that the school budget may not otherwise have been able to provide. Our main events includes three disco’s a year, Easter Bake, quiz and our biggest event of the year, our Grand Summer Fete, held within the school grounds. In the past we have purchased laptops, ICT software and we often subsidize school trips. Recently we have contributed to the cost of the playground, bought football kits, paid for team treats, paid for a Science show and pantomime, books for library, leavers books and smaller items for the classrooms as requested by the teachers. As a special treat at Christmas, we surprised all the children with a visit from Santa’s reindeer. We have great support from our Head Teacher and staff and always welcome ideas and new parents. We run lots of events and fundraising throughout the year so we always need volunteers. We would love to welcome you to FOHA, so please feel free to join us at any time. FOHA cannot operate without new members to replace parents moving on to high school every year. We have our own Facebook page to keep parents up to date with fundraising and events planned throughout the year. We also send home newsletters which includes all the information about money raised and future events. On behalf of FOHA, the helpers and supporters, we welcome you and your child to Hillside Primary School and Nursery. We look forward to meeting you at our events. To check on the events we run for school please visit the “Events” section of this website.
