What is the MHSA?

The MHSA is the parents’ association for both the infant and junior schools and recently the nursery.

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.

Last year (2019/2020) we raised £15624 through events and sponsorships despite not being able to organise some of our usual events due to the covid19 pandemic.

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 and the nursery to pay for additional resources that could not usually be paid for from the schools’ budget.

Most recently this has included purchase of Google Chrome Books – access to the best modern learning. There is a plan for some inspirational artwork that will reinvigorate the schools and make them a great place to want to learn. Other benefits include creating a learning garden in the infant school and 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, digital entry system in Juniors 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.

Current requirements:

The current pandemic has forced us to look at other avenues for fundraising. But this is also a great opportunity for the MHSA to explore and harness digital technology for our needs. Parents who are knowledgeable in online fundraising and online events management will be extremely valuable to our efforts at this time. Please get in touch.

Typically a MHSA committee parent would spend an hour on our once-a-term meetings and a few hours in the week leading to major events like the Fireworks and the fairs. As these are unlikely to happen this year, your time commitment will probably be a handful of hours per term.
