Striving for excellence together

‘Friends of Hayesdown Children’ (PTA)

Our Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is known as ‘Friends of Hayesdown Children’.   This group of parents, grandparents and staff work hard to run a number of events throughout the year to raise money and provide opportunities for the school community to meet informally and socialise.  ‘Friends of Hayesdown Children’ also manage the purchase and sale of school uniform containing the Hayesdown logo.

The Committee is always happy to welcome new members and to receive ideas to support its work.  You don’t have to be a member to attend meetings and help at events – you simply have to turn up or offer your services through a PTA member.  Many hands make light work and we can assure you of a very warm welcome!

 

Events

The Committee has an annual core of tried and tested social events that are enjoyed by the community but also tries to introduce one or two new events each year.  Events are detailed in our newsletters and cited in the calendar on this website.
