The Friends of Haileybury Almaty Parents' Association is governed by a
constitution. Below gives details of membership criteria, the composition, rules
and duties of the committee and its fundraising remit. Additional information is
also provided about the election of new committee members and the timing of,
and rules governing, the HPA's annual general meeting (AGM).
The Haileybury Almaty Parents' Association (HPA) was formed in recognition of the emerging role that parents play in the modern British independent school, both in the UK and internationally. The full constitution is detailed below:
To engage in activities that support the School, with a particular focus on social events involving parents, to which pupils and staff are welcome.
Membership is available to all parents of pupils currently in the School. Apart from the Staff Representative; teaching staff, pastoral staff, administrators, and pupils are not actually members, but can be invited to attend meetings.
Whilst the HPA is not established as a fund-raising organisation, it requires monies to support its activities. Any surplus funds generated will be used to fund projects that benefit the whole school and its houses. At this stage, it is not proposed to request as is done in the UK, a termly subscription from each family to fund administration, and to cover the sponsorship of, and any shortfall arising from, the events it organises. In the UK families are permitted to opt out of the HPA subscription.
The Committee of the HPA shall be comprised as follows: One House Representative from each House in both Lower School and Upper School; parents selected/invited by Housemasters/mistresses (HMs) in each School. (8 representatives in total)
