The Crane 12 March 2017

Dear HIS Families

festivalposterWe are coming into an exciting part of the year with the upcoming HIS Festival. These types of major school events are organized by our volunteer PTA, and often a small group of people perform a very large amount of work. This group currently needs some support from our wider HIS community.
Volunteers are needed for the HIS Festival. You can contact the PTA via the email provided in the PTA message below.

We put a large box at the school entrance. It’s easy if you ask your child to bring it to school.
