Want to take a more active role in your son’s school life? Come along and join the Parent Support Association!
What we do
The PSA provides practical, hands-on support at school events as well as driving fundraising initiatives for the provision of resources for all our sons to enjoy.
Hands- on Support
Whether it’s sustaining staff and students with hot food during school production week or providing tea (and a friendly face) to prospective parents during Open Day, the PSA is readily available to support the school staff and help make things happen.
You’ll find our members at numerous school and community events, such as:
- Open Day
- Student Breakfasts
- Grandparents’ Day
- Variety Show
- Information Evening for new Parents
- Annual Staff Xmas lunch
- School Productions
Fundraising is still a crucial function of the PSA and in the last four years the PSA have contributed nearly $170,000 of resources and improvements to the school. Recent examples of items funded by the PSA are the 'break out' furniture for the new Mathematics block, the fitness equipment in the Gymnasium, the school Pare, Library chairs and the revamp of the school's website. Additionally, the PSA each year makes a contribution to the IS Team, the Leavers' Dinner and funding for both the Year 7 and Year 10 Breakfasts.
The PSA recently led some very successful fundraising initiatives including the Home and Garden tour in 2015 and the HIBS Cookbook 'Boy I'm Hungry'.
We are sure you will agree, your son's time at HIBS has been enhanced as a result of these initiatives.
And you can be part of it too.
