About the PTA
Friends of Hillside - Your Parent Teacher Association
Friends of Hillside ("FOH") organises school fundraising events. We are a small friendly group of people who are passionate about Helsby Hillside Primary School.
During our annual AGM, for 2020/2021 school year, members have been elected for the committee roles:
- Chair: Vikki White
- Vice-Chair: Michelle Lepts
- Secretary: Andy O’Hanlon
- Assistant Secretary: Sophie Phillips
- Treasurer: Onye Chigbu
- Assistant Treasurer: Holly Butchers
We raise money to be spent on the 'extra' things that can enhance our children's learning experience in the school; those things that would not necessarily be otherwise funded. In past years, the trim trail, forest area at the school field and the purchase of iPads to be used by our children are great examples.
Last year, the total amount of money spent on the school was over £8,000. We repaired the trim trail, Completed the Y1 outdoor learning space, paid for the transport to the Panto and much more!!! The FOH Committee has done a fantastic job and we are very grateful to the members and parents who have contributed as their commitments have allowed.
This year we are going to try and raise enough funds to enhance the KS2 playground by purchasing outside gym equipment. This is our goal and any ideas you have to support this are always welcome. During the COVID pandemic we have changed our FOH meetings: we are now on zoom!!, if you would like to join us please contact FOH or the school Office. We would love to see you!!
