Choose us as your Co-op local cause

We are hoping to create a forest school area on the school field for the pupils and the local community. The Co-op in Dalston has kindly adopted us as one of their local causes - if you go to http://coop.co.uk/membership you can make us your cause and school will receive a 1% donation on branded products you buy from the co-op - from any branch! The link can be used by current members or those wishing to join.


Lucky Numbers

We are selling numbered squares (1 -100) over the next few weeks, for £2 per number. Once all the numbers have been sold Mrs Paisley will pick a number at random and the lucky winner will receive £100 in cash. Members of the HSA team will be in the playgrounds over the next few days, so keep a look out.

Check out the newsletter for other future fundraising activities.

Huge thanks if you help us with any of the above-mentioned schemes

Background Information

Who are we?

We are a group of parents, carers, grandparents, relatives and friends who work together to raise funds to support school activities. Every parent of a child at our school is automatically a member, it's up to you to decide how involved you wish to be!


A little bit of history

The HSA was set up in September 2018 in response to news of recent Government cutbacks which were contributing to deficits in school budgets. As the budget at St. Michael's was getting tighter we decided to help raise funds for extra-curricular activities and facilities which are often the first thing to be affected. Events are organised with fun in mind and it is very important to us that we include the children and the wider community in our endeavours.


Keeping in touch

We share a noticeboard (on the wall as you walk into the infant playground) and produce regular newsletters

Our Success Stories!

So far, our funds have bought:

* a digital Datalogger for Year 6 to use in maths, ICT and science lessons

* a green screen

* over 100 new books, covered and banded, for the school library

* transport for the Christmas plays

These have been raised through lots of fun events - a fashion show, a Christmas Fair, a 'Sport-a-thon' and discos. We have also received generous donations from local businesses.

Would you like to be involved?

Hopefully, the answer is yes! If so, attend our meetings, volunteer at one of our events or become a committee member. The easiest way is to have a chat with someone who is already involved, so you could email one of the officers above and arrange a friendly chat. It doesn't matter how much time you have to spare, we ask for as little or as much as you can give - so join us and make a host of new friends.
