Most schools have a Parent Teacher Association and we are no exception. Our PTA is known as hsa, the Harnham Schools Association and is a joint PTA for the Infant and Junior schools.
The sole purpose of the hsa is to raise money for the school.
The committee (which includes both Headteachers) meet twice a term. The schools provide a wish list of the things they require. The hsa raises money to make these wishes come true.
The hsa have a Mini Lottery for £1 per month called the 200 Club. Every month 3 lucky winners are drawn to share the prize money. The rest of the money is divided between the two schools.
