H.S.D. Parents' Association
Welcome to your Parents Association Portal
The primary goal of the Association is to represent the interests of you as parents/guardians of children at the school and to promote good relationships between parents/guardians and the school.
The Association is represented at every level across the management of the school.
The President, Nigel Donovan and Vice Chair, Evelyn Foley are the Parent Representatives on the Board of Governors and the Management Committee of the school.
With members of the general committee also on each of the Board sub-committees – Education (Melody Chinenyanga), Sport (Vincent Landy), Finance (Evelyn Foley), and Grounds/Property (Steve Wilson) – the parents association is consulted on the development of all major new policies at the school.
