The Moss Hall Schools' Association (MHSA), is a combined parent and carer association between the Infant and Junior Schools of Moss Hall and Moss Hall Nursery. We organise many events throughout the year to bring the community together and raise money for the schools.

2019-2020 MHSA Donation to schools - £20,564.81
Juniors and Infants: The allocations from last year have been invested in Chromebooks (that came in handy especially last year during the second lockdown) and in supporting the curriculum development that has been happening at full speed in our schools the past year. Curriculum development requires investing in good quality textbooks which cost money. The school has bought around 700 books for the Juniors and 400 for the Infants. The books will serve as a springboard for our children for learning across the curriculum. In addition the school was able to invest in several decodable text books in line with the following of Read Write Inc phonics in the curriculum. This will be used both in the Infants and Juniors to support the schools' Early Reading program.
Nursery: Last year's money awarded was spent on getting Waterproofs for the children. This came in very handy especially during last year because it meant children could stay outdoors in our extensive garden space all year round irrespective of the weather.
Dear parents and carers, all this will not be possible without your support. We should all be proud of what we have achieved in this past difficult year!
The aims for this years' fundraising were also discussed, watch this space for more on this and how you could get involved!
