The school has a thriving parents’ association which does a brilliant job of supporting the school, sometimes proposing ambitious social events which bring staff, parents and children together – sometimes raising funds for the school and sometimes coming up with reasons just to have fun.
The RHSA was formed in 1987 and has never faltered since its inception. Membership of the RHSA is open to all parents and guardians of pupils in the school, also current teachers, support staff and former pupils.
The committee consists of ten members; its chairman is appointed at the AGM for a period of one year. The RHSA has a close relationship with the Head of the school (who is an ex-officio member of the committee) and plays a key role in liaising between her and the parent body.
All new parents are invited to join the RHSA; the school also asks for parents from all year groups to act as ‘Form Representatives’. The representatives attend meetings with the Head on a regular basis to feed back questions and comments from other parents.
