Welcome to the HSA Page!
St Bede Home School Association is a group of parents, carers and school staff who organise a wide range of events to raise money for our school, supporting a variety of extra activities and providing equipment and resources across school.
Last academic year (2014-2015), the HSA raised over £11,000 for our school, through the main annual fundraisers of the Summer and Christmas Fairs. In addition we have also run a hugely popular quiz night - Bede Brain, wine tasting nights, held 'Teddy Bede' second had uniform sales, produced and sold tea towels, organised school discos and theatre events and had regular cake sales and an after school ice-cream sale in the summer term.
The HSA also produces an annual calendar and runs the Birthday Books scheme where parents can purchase a book for their child's birthday, take it home to read and then donate the book to the school library.
The HSA is a registered charity and all profits from our events go straight into supporting St Bede and the learning of our children. Last year we contributed £10,755 to the school, with £4,100 used to purchase the fantastic new Reception Cabin as part of the Reception playground re-development. We also provided £400 for every class in the school to purchase resources and to subsidise the cost of school trips and a further £2,500 towards the 2015 summer whole school visit to Mottisfont.
All parents automatically become members of the Home & School Association but if you want to get more involved in supporting St Bede and organising some fun and social activities then come and join the committee or just volunteer to help at one of our events.
