The Heymann Support Association

Helping to support your children and their School.

The HSA is a group of volunteer parents and staff from Heymann Primary School.  Our main goal is to raise money for the school to help enhance the children's learning experience and time at the school.

The HSA organise events through the school year where children and parents can have fun and raise money.  From school discos and the Christmas and Summer fairs and even a parents quiz there is events for everyone.  

The HSA are also there to lend an extra hand to the school for jobs like running the book fair or simply serving cups of teas at events

**News Flash - HSA Quiz**

Thanks to all that came to the quiz,  we raised £379.30 which is a great result.  Thanks to Charlie and Richard for providing another great event,  and well done to the winning team Quizee Rascals.

So what is our current Fundraising Goal?

Since 2016 the HSA has been funding the School wildlife development project and other outdoor projects across the school.  At Key Stage 2 in particular we have been helping the Student council to plan and construct a wildlife area next to the portable classrooms.  Great progress has been made against this and some photos can be seen on the Wildlife Development Page

Highlights include

  • Plants to attract a wide variety of wildlife
  • A bug hotel, bird feeders and bird boxes
  • Fox proof chicken hutches - chickens to arrive soon
  • A herb garden
  • Clearing and establishing the old path
  • Increasing the equipment - including a shed

    The Green Group and School Council would also like to tidy up the quad area and turn it into a Quiet Area where children can read draw and play games.

This is a big long term project,  have a look at the totaliser in Key Stage 2 to see us move towards our target

What can you do to help out?

Join the team : We have fun doing the HSA-work and the more people in the team the more we can do. Any and all help is greatly appreciated and it goes straight back towards the school and the children.

Support HSA events : If you cannot join the HSA we also need people at events and any time you can donate helps.  If We also need cakes and prizes for events to make the event as good as possible

We will always welcome new members or an extra pair of hands, so if you want to help just get in touch.

easyfundraising : If you shop online this is an easy way to make money for the school.  Join the site then use links on to go to your websites and shop as usual.  Every time you spend with certain retailers the school gets money back and it doesn't cost you a penny.  There is even have a 'Find and Remind" toolbar you can download or an App if you shop on the move.
