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 2021/2022 school year, members have been elected for the committee roles:
- Chair: Charlotte Chant
- Treasurer: Andrew O’Hanlon
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.
This year we have already raised £4,000 through many activities including a Christmas Fair, Ho Ho Helsby, Christmas production raffles, discos and the most successful coin competition to date!
Previously we have used these funds to build a Y1 outdoor learning space, purchase outdoor gym equipment, paid the transport for reception to go a trip to the airport, paid for a hands on science day 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 planning to use funds for a ‘Reading Hut’ for the KS1 playground to encourage the kids to read and allow our teachers to strengthen their teaching of phonics and reading. This is only one of our goals 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 but are planning occasional face to face meetings. If you would like to join us please contact FOH or the school Office. We would love to see you!!
If you’d like to get involved or help in any way, contact us by joining the Friends of Hillside Facebook group and sending a message or email email@example.com
