A warm welcome to all new and returning Hoe Valley families. We hope that you are now settling into the school year.
The PTA works with the school and local community to raise funds for additional school resources and organise a variety of social activities throughout the school year.

We are a friendly and enthusiastic team of parents, guardians and teachers who want to make a positive contribution to school life.
Every parent/carer and teacher at HVS is automatically a member of the PTA and we hope that there is something we organise that attracts your interest – it’s a great way to meet other like-minded parents while building a strong school community. Help is always welcome and we are always open to suggestions for other events!

If you would like to be involved or get in touch for more information on anything please contact us via

The PTA held the AGM on Friday 14th October. Please see a copy of the minutes here.

Christmas Market – Tuesday 6th December 2022

We were delighted to host our first Christmas Market comprising over 20 local business and school run stalls on a dry but crispy Tuesday evening. The hot mulled wine (alcohol free of course) from Mel’s Marvellous Cakes was definitely needed! The variety of products on offer from biltong to bijoux jewellery means some people will be getting some interesting and varied presents, though the bottle tombola also proved particularly popular – let’s hope the raffle ticket is removed before wrapping! The Market was opened by local Councillor: Louise Morales and it was lovely to hear the school choir singing carols. The main raffle prize, a hamper, was won by Rebecca Knight.

Thank you so much to all who attended and many thanks to all the school staff and PTA members who helped – in particular John Russouw, Lisa Johnston and Mel Bartlett for their enthusiasm and commitment to make it happen.

Looking forward to the Spring term, watch out for another Quiz night and other exciting events. If you have ideas or could spare some time to help please drop us a line at

Have a great break and look forward to seeing you in 2023.
