PTA (Parent Teacher Association)
The WLFS PTA’s primary aim is to create a strong supportive school community by holding events and fundraising activities which include parents, carers, pupils and teachers. We develop and maintain a wide range of events, some to build community and some to raise much needed funds for our school. The money that the PTA raises goes towards making the school a better place. The Headteacher will compile a “wish list”– an annual request for items that she and the staff feel would benefit the school.
We have just recently held a very successful auction, with the support of WLFS families and local businesses, and we were able to raise £23,000. These funds are already being put towards various projects and requirements for the school. We have currently approved the purchase of desktop computers for the Art Department along with photoshop licenses; 10 pupil laptops; DNA Modification Equipment for our Year 11s; supplies for the school libraries, both at Franklin House and Palingswick House; iPads for the Maths Department to allow for classes to be more interactive and upgrades to Common Areas at Franklin House, along with a range of other items.
Please Join Us!
We warmly welcome all new members and are currently looking for a Sponsorship Coordinator to develop relationships with local estate agents & businesses, in order to increase corporate sponsorship of our events. We are also forming a committee to explore the feasibility, cost and maintenance programme for a Living Wall at Palingswick House. If you are interested in organising the Living Wall Committee, or joining us as our Sponsorship Coordinator, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition, we are looking for Event Coordinators for our Cabaret Evenings, Sports Day, the Art Exhibition Evening and Sports Awards Evening. We provide all new Event Coordinators with an event pack that includes historical event information, a pre-event checklist, detailed event set-up information and an event staffing guide.
