We enjoy a strong partnership with parents of our students, particularly through the Home School Association, which is a very active, fund-raising group providing many useful ‘extras’ for the school every year. The MAHSA makes a significant contribution to the facilities, which we can offer to our students by organising a variety of social events, which bring parents, staff and students together. New members to the MAHSA are always welcome.
Who we are
The Matthew Arnold Home-School Association is a group of parents and teachers who support the school by fundraising, organising events, giving support at school events etc.
This year’s target
This year we have been given a huge task in helping the school to raise up to £35,000.
The majority of this money needs to be raised to pay for all the equipment, furniture and fittings for the new sixth form block which also has classroom facilities to be used by all year groups. This new building and its facilities will benefit your child and support their education throughout their time at Matthew Arnold.
So, we need your help......
How you can help
There are many ways to help us, you can:
By completing the MAHSA covenant form – found on the school website (under Home-School Association)
By making regular donations via ParentPay (www.parentpay.com)
By donating raffle prizes for the Grand Raffle to be held at the end of the year
Online via easyfundraising – every time you shop at your favourite online retailers, they will donate to the HSA (easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/matthewarnoldschoolcumnor/)
Join us on the HSA – we hold regular meetings, sometimes in the pub!
Support the HSA by helping out at events – we always need extra man-power at various events throughout the year
Support us through sponsorship
We are looking for a number of companies who would be willing to sponsor the new building and its facilities – ask us for more details
We really need your help to make Matthew Arnold School the best it can be.
