About Harrow Tamil School Association (HTSA) - எம்மைப்பற்றி

Harrow Tamil School Association (HTSA) was founded in 1987 by late Mr. Elampoornam. HTSA is a non-political, non-profitable secular, cultural, educational and artistic organization for the Tamils and others who are interested in our culture and tradition. We are an independent association and we would like to proclaim that we have absolutely no allegiance to any particular race, religion, country or political organisation. While Harrow Tamil School Association actively supports and encourages cultural and social integration, concurrently, the HTSA accentuates that our children should understand, learn and preserve our rich heritage and tradition of our Dravidian values, Tamil culture and language. HTSA endeavours hard through its various cultural and social activities to sustain our uniqueness. New admissions of the Association are open to all people living in the United Kingdom regardless of their origins. We are united by the Tamil language, culture and values reaching beyond the boundaries of nationalities and countries. We also welcome anyone with open arms who is interested in Tamil language and culture.

What we offer

Organisational Structure

The Harrow Tamil School Association is run by Board of Administrators (BOA) and the Board is elected at a Special General Meeting by paid parent members every year. The BOA consists of a President, a Secretary, a Treasurer and Six Committee members. The BOA then selects various parents’ representatives to form either a sub-committee or act as individuals to manage various activities and events under their watchful eyes. These individuals are chosen randomly and on rotation so that every parent will be represented in due course and they all feel part of our successful Tamil School.
