Parents & Friends Association
Welcome to the area for Parents and Friends of Wilmington Grammar School for Girls
All Parents automatically belong to the ‘Parents & Friends Association’ (PFA), but being a ‘Friends’ association, membership is not confined to Parents and Teachers, but is extended to include other family relations and members of the public who have been approved by the Committee. We hold five to six Committee meetings a year (usually on a Thursday evening) and our Annual General Meeting is in October. Everyone is welcome to attend any of our meetings.
We organise a varied programme of events for both students and parents throughout the year, including Discos, Quiz Nights, Year 11 Prom and a Christmas Fair (to hire a stall please download the stallholder letter on this page). We also raise funds to provide additional resources for the students which cannot be met from within existing finances, such as Bookbuzz for year 7 students. We are always looking for new ideas for fund-raising events so please get in touch if you feel there is something we should try.
