WSPA UPDATE

WSPA UPDATE

Lots to look forward to in the calendar of events with our active and sociable WSPA.

Well, I am fairly confident that we can all say that this was surely one of the more interesting terms we've ever experienced, to say the least. The WSPA wish to recognise/celebrate/commiserate with all our fellow parents/guardians over their amazing achievements as newly qualified scientists and mathematicians, dinosaur/unicorn cake bakers, Ronaldo rival fitness instructors and DT qualified tent builders. As a reward, we would like to enhance your celebrations of a well-earned summer holiday (referring to the parents, of course), by providing you with a sneak peek of what you can look forward to upon our return.

3. Year Reps

This year (2019-2020) we have been incredibly fortunate enough to have had a strong cohort of volunteer parents coordinating WhatsApp group chats, social get togethers and general community support within each year group. Below is a list of the current Year Reps and their contact details if you have not had the chance to join in yet. The WSPA would like to take this public opportunity to thank the following Reps who have played an instrumental role in bringing their 'groups' together in a manner which is so special to Warminster School. The following three ladies have been brilliant, but alas are returning to their homelands - Meredith Mangiaracina (USA) Reception, Kelly Mills (USA) Year 6 and Michelle Kjoelner (Denmark) Year 8. I am sure that those of you in their 'groups' will join us in extending our greatest appreciation and very best wishes.

And finally, please be remind of the upcoming AGM on 07 September at 7pm in the TA Hall. All are welcome to come along and see what the WSPA is all about, no strings attached.  This will provide you with an opportunity to ask innumerable questions about our activities, volunteer in either an elected capacity or a lend a hand when you can type role, meet new people and indulge in great company and ample chicken goujons. 

The entire WSPA committee and the school community look forward to us all being back together very soon. Until then, we sincerely wish you a summer break filled with sanity, health and perseverance. 

Keep safe and keep going,
Your WSPA
