Friends of Wavell
The Friends of Wavell comprises of a dedicated committee of Parents, Staff and Governors who meet three times a year and work to raise extra funds for school resources, in particular the lease and maintenance of the School Mini bus which is used for many of the trips and extra-curricular activities.
As a registered charity we raise funds by organising events such as Quiz Nights, Fashion Shows and providing refreshments at Parents' Evenings. These events are great ways to meet other parents, support the School and have fun.
If you are interested in becoming a committee member, help out at one of the events, donate raffle prizes or help with the refreshments at Parents' Evenings please email us at email@example.com. We would also love to hear from any businesses that may be able to help with sponsorship.
Other ways in which you can support the school:
Annual Voluntary Contribution
Ten years ago we launched our Annual Voluntary Contribution (formally School Covenant)which has proved to be invaluable for the continued provision of extra services, especially the lease for the mini buses.
The suggested donation of £30 per family per year can be split over 3 terms.
In order to contribute, please complete a Gift Aid declaration so that we can reclaim the tax on each donation. Details for payment can be found in the letter below. Payments should be made by cheque, payable to 'Friends of Wavell' or via BACS.
