A warm welcome to FoTHA - Friends of The Harefield Academy.
The Friends of the Harefield Academy (FoTHA) is a voluntary group organised by parents and carers of students at THA and Academy staff.
Throughout the school year we fundraise for The Academy, raising money for additional equipment and resources to enhance the teaching and learning of the students. We would love your support at these activities:
Harefield Village Fete
Year 6 Parents’ Transition Evening
Macmillan Coffee Morning
Our pre-loved uniform sales are very popular. All items are donated by current or previous students, have been freshly laundered and are of good quality. Each item is £1.
Reminders of new events as they are organised will be put up on the website so keep an eye out for updates…
Recent fundraising efforts have allowed us to purchase a Reader Pen for the SEN department.
Statement/Testimonial from a Year 11 Student:
“I think the reading pens help me immensely with my reading in class and my practice exams.”
“I think it’s helped me be faster with my use of time in exams.”
“I think it will help me with doing my exams properly.”
We have also obtained bibles for the Humanities faculty and are pulling together details from the department ‘Wish Lists’ and will keep you updated on future purchases.
Supporting The Academy with its community outreach and following a pupil vote last year, we donated to Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital. Each year a percentage of our fundraising will be donated to charity.
If you would like to get involved in FoTHA, make an enquiry about pre-loved uniform or learn more about FoTHA please contact us here.
We held the raffle prize draw for the Eco Kids Clothing Collection on the 19th April and we can report that a student in Year 8 won the Intu Vouchers. Everyone who left a bag of clothes was given a ticket for the draw. Over 50 bags were collected in total so a big thank you to all who supported the event – details are going out on the THA Twitter feed.
Next collection we are aiming for 100 bags so don’t throw away your old clothes!
Thank you for your support.
