Volunteers and Friends of H.P.S.
Hastings Primary School is fortunate to have the support of a very active Friends of Hastings Primary School (FoHPS) group who meet very regularly to plan the school community’s social and fundraising calendar for each year.
FoHPS has representation from both families and the school staff. With this mix, at the planning and organisational level, the program of events is focused on providing lots of different opportunities for our children, families, staff and broader community to participate in together.
Once the executive team completes the calendar of events, the opportunity for many other members of the community is offered to assist, support and join in the fun.
The activities planned more often than not have a two pronged purpose -forming friendships through social interaction and as fundraising for the school.
Fundraising activities have included Easter and Christmas raffles, Mothers and Fathers Day stalls and/or raffles, special produce or merchandise drives, meal deals and whole school …. – a – thon events.
Events planned to build a positive, friendly school community include Kidsmatter market every Thursday afternoon, student discos, Children’s Annual Christmas Party, social events for adults and special celebration days.
Throughout the year we welcome dozens of regular volunteers to the school – in classrooms, in specialist programs, in the playgrounds and on excursions and camps. Parents, grandparents, senior citizens and community volunteers all contribute to the mix of volunteers who help us out in so many ways. If you have a special interest or skills, or simply have time on your hands to help out, you will be amde welcome at Hastings Primary School.
