Grove House Parents Association (SHA)
Parents Association (SHA)
The SHA is a group of volunteers who organize and run fundraising events. These events also bring the school community together in a fun, social environment.
We always endeavour to spend the funds in ways that will benefit all our children across all areas of the school and curriculum. These funds are for the ‘extras’ not provided by the school budget, that make our children’s learning experiences so much more fulfilling and exciting.
How do we raise our funds?
The SHA regularly hold a Christmas and a Summer Fair. We also organise discos, the most popular of which is our fancy dress Halloween disco. Other fundraisers include cake stalls, and sale of refreshments at sports day and family events. We are always keen for new ideas on how to raise funds.
What do we spend the funds raised on?
Some are ongoing commitments, such as providing new books for the library presents at Christmas and digital cameras for the classrooms.
We have also provided:
- Golden time toys
- CD players for each class
- Outdoor play equipment
- Mobile PA system
- Portable cooker for Year 1
We always have new projects we are working towards.
How can you help?
New members and fresh ideas are always welcome. We usually meet once a month. Offering to help before and at events is always hugely appreciated. You can also help us by letting us know if you have any contacts or skills we could use. Details of upcoming events and SHA meetings are always given in the weekly newsletter. If you are interested in joining or helping out, simply contact the school office.
