The wish list is a list of resources for the school requested by parents or teachers and is paid for from the WPA’s fundraising efforts.
Fundraising for the school is a greatly valued part of the role of the WPA. The fund should benefit as many in the school as possible and money raised is specifically for projects that cannot be covered by school fees, but enhance the children's experience at school.
Just before half term, Mr Timms was delighted to announce the launch of the Wellbeing Hub, the new outdoor area, designed to help support Walhampton's physical and mental health provision with a dedicated relaxed space for children. The hub has been funded by the WPA. The fabulous area is already being enjoyed by all, be it break times, for lessons, or by the boarders relaxing after school.
Over the years, the WPA has also helped fundraise for some wonderful resources. Items have included:
External landscaping for the new 'Little Kitchen' and kitchen supplies
The Outdoor Classroom
The Pre-Prep ‘Potting Shed Library’
We have also contributed to parental donations, and since 2018 generous parent donations and WPA funds have funded:
The outdoor table tennis tables (donated by the 2021 Yr 8 & Yr 6 leavers and WPA funds)
The science garden
The butterfly breeding programme
Comfy chairs for the library
The Italian Garden
Riding poles & jumps
The Slide on the Faraway Tree (donated by the 2018 Yr 8 & Yr 6 leavers and WPA funds).
We are currently fundraising for the following items.
