Immaculate Heart Of Mary Catholic Primary School

With Mary, we put Jesus at the heart of our work, love and learning

Welcome to IHOMSA Webpage

What is IHOMSA ?

IHOMSA stands for "Immaculate Heart of Mary School Association" and welcomes parents, teachers and friends of our children.  We exist to provide a closer, less formal link between home and school. Being involved is an excellent way to bring everyone together socially and in support of our school.

Much of our effort is focused upon fund-raising activities and this additional revenue is put to good use throughout the school.  In the past, we have helped purchase the trim trail, iPads, new bike shelter, Y3 Holy Communion flowers and Y6 Leavers Party.

In short, your school and your children benefit as a result and everyone involved has a lot of fun & satisfaction along the way! 

Who Are We?

As a parent of a child / children at Immaculate Heart, you are more than welcome to become a member of IHOMSA.  Whether you volunteer your time, skills or other resources or simply attend one of our many events, we value your support.

We also have a committee and each class has a IHOMSA rep.  Please follow this link for more details. 

Meetings

We aim to meet once per half term with additional sub-meetings in preparation for our larger events such as Family Nights.

Fundraising News

Hopefully, you're all aware that our hard earned funds will be put towards replacing the astro-turf (at an estimated cost of £100,000!). IHOMSA are pleased to be able to donate £25k. Your support at IHOMSA events has always been appreciated and has been even more vital to achieve this massive target - thank you.

Y5 & Y6 Film Night - Our first Film Night was very well attended yet so quiet! Everyone was captivated by The Greatest Showman. It proved to be a successful alternative to the disco for our older children. Just over £250 was raised.

Bingo Night - A huge thank-you to Mark Butler (Reception parent) for compering our first Bingo Night. Despite the tension of waiting for the next number to be called, lots of fun was had by kids, young & old. Together, we raised over £500

2016-17 fund raising total - It was reported at the AGM that we raised an amazing £16,000 last year. Thanks to everyone who supported & helped to achieve this - especially parents who organised specific events and those who match funded.

£10,000 donated in 2016-17 will be put towards replacing the timber trail in the large playground. After many meetings, the children have made their final decision as to what equipment is needed. We are expecting the new trail to be installed by mid June 2017.

Money raised in 2015-16 was spent on the scooter pods, new carpets & window blinds plus outdoor equipment including the activity tables and a contribution towards the Reception playground.
