HPSA Privacy Notice
At Hawkedon Primary School Association, we are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. The following policy explains when and why we collect personal information, how we use it, the conditions under which we may disclose it to others and how we keep it secure:
We held our first ever virtual balloon race in August, and we had 50 balloons join from HPSA supporters alongside lots of balloons from other charities (including other Earley PTAs). This raised over £120. Unfortunately, none of the HPSA balloons won the big race but we were able to offer a £20 gift voucher to the winning HPSA balloon (who kindly donated half of that back to HPSA).
HPSA would like to thank the following companies for their generous donations to our Summer Fayre and online auction.
Unfortunately, we have had to cancel our Summer Fayre but hope to have an online auction once further lockdown restrictions are lifted.
We wish all our supporting businesses and families well during this difficult time, and hope you are all staying safe.

Our first ever online auction. We had been generously gifted lots of prizes for our Summer Fayre, and for those companies that are opened or have announced opening dates we are having an online auction that is now live. Please take a look, there are some great prizes to be won, at bargain prizes. The auction is live and closes on the 24th July at 7.00 pm. Keep checking throughout the duration of the auction, as we are adding more lots once we hear back from businesses that the vouchers can be used.

HPSA are pleased to announce that we are going to be running our first online auction at the start of the Summer Term.
Are you a parent/carer or a member of the local community and run your own business no matter how large or small? Would you be willing to donate a gift voucher, discount voucher or other suitable prize that we could use in our auction?
We are looking for any local companies who would be willing to donate a prize that we could offer in our online auction. We would be extremely grateful and would acknowledge you on our webpage, facebook page and Summer Fayre brochure. If permitted, we will also tag your facebook page on thank you posts on our pages and local groups.
On the auction page we can include your company logo, website link and any brief company description (if supplied).
We are hoping to raise £500 through our online auction. If you would like to donate then please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our auction page is available here.
Christmas Fayre Update
The Christmas Fayre made approximately £4400, and we hope everyone had a great time.
Thank you to all those you came to our AGM on 10th October 2019. It was lovely to see so many people there. Mr O’Shea gave us some ideas for projects we may want to fund this year, and we elected our new committee.
Chair: Caroline Poll
Vice Chair: Kim Prior
Secretary: Amanda McGuinness
Treasurer: Sarah Bullion, assisted by Tim Andrews & Nick Howard
We would welcome anyone wanting to shadow/learn from the current committee. We will need a new secretary in a year’s time and many of the team now have children in their last couple of years here, so we need some new members with fresh ideas and enthusiasm to take HPSA forward.
Hawkedon is a large school with over 630 pupils. Please don’t just assume that someone else will help. Even if you don't have a lot of time to spare to attend regular committee meetings, then just 1 hour helping at an event, or doing some shopping or photocopying for us can really make a difference.
Car Boot Sale Update
A big thanks to everyone who took part in Car Boot Sale on 6th October. We are pleased to announce that with our combined efforts we were able to raise £260.
Summer Fayre Update
We would like to thank everyone who came and supported our Summer Fayre in June 2019. We raised over £3,300 at this event, and this money is going towards the projects that HPSA funds, including the outdoor gym trail.
Easter Treasure Hunt Update
We'd like to thank everyone who came along and supported the Easter Egg Hunt at the end of the Spring Term. Thanks to all the helpers who helped hide and giving out eggs - we couldn’t have done it without you. We raised approximately £250, and we hope you all had fun.
In the autumn term 2019, HPSA donated £8000 towards the new Junior Outdoor Gym Equipment. The Gym Equipment will be used for PE lessons, and there are enough stations for a whole class to use equipment in pairs. Staff may also supervise children on the equipment at lunchtimes.
Donations in 2018-2019 Academic Year
In the academic year 2018-2019, HPSA funded a new keyboard and 30 glockenspiels for music lessons, and donated towards the minibus lease for another year and Christmas activities for each year group.
On 6th December 2019 HPSA will be holding their annual Christmas Fayre from 6-8pm. We hope that you will have a lovely family evening.
Please note that Santa slots must be reserved and paid for in advance, and details will be sent home via bookbags.
