What is the Home and School Association?

Bedford South Home and School Association (HSA) is the volunteer and fundraising arm of the parent/guardian community. The bulk of our responsibility is to provide a platform for this community to become engaged in the activities and fundraising at our school which help to enhance your child’s education experience.

Every parent and guardian is a member of the HSA and our events also promote and help to build our cohesive community!

HSA Executive:

Co-Chairs:  Andrea McGivern

Secretary:  Jacqueline Spencer
Administration:  Helen Healy, Principal
Administration:  Suzanne Hawkes, Vice-Principal

When Does HSA Meet?

HSA meetings are held on the second Tuesday of every month at 7:00 pm by Zoom (in person may be possible).  Meetings last about one hour and your attendance is welcome and encouraged!

How Does HSA Raise Money?

The HSA organizes several fundraiser events each year.  These are a great way to meet other parents/children at the school outside of school hours.  The money raised by these HSA events help fund classroom activities and/or classroom enhancements.

If you have any questions about how the money we raise is used during the school year please feel free to come to one of our monthly meetings as budget review is always at the top of the agenda!
