Down High Association (DHA)

Welcome to the Down High Association (DHA), the school’s very active parents’ association. The DHA is a registered charity and all parents of children at the school are members of DHA. The main object of the charity as stated in our constitution is to:

“engage in activities or provide facilities or equipment which support the School and advances the education of the pupils.”

We organise a number of events during the year and this contributes to the friendly ethos that characterises Down High School. In recent years we have bought:

  • Defibrillators
  • CD Players
  • Electronic Keyboards
  • Equipment for the Squash club
  • Microscopes
  • Camera
  • Cordless drills
  • Interactive Digital Resources for science investigations
  • Goalkeeping equipment and rugby bibs

The DHA Committee is busy planning fundraising activities for the Spring and Summer terms. If you would like to be involved with helping out at any events, please contact us at
Any help will be greatly appreciated and, particularly for new parents and guardians, it is a great way to get to know everyone.

Please like and follow us on Facebook (Down High School) and Twitter (@DownHighSchool) where news is regularly posted to keep everyone up to date with all that is happening. We very much look forward to seeing you at future Down High Parents’ Association events.
