Welcome to the Friends of Welford and Wickham School section of our website. The school has a very active and hugely supportive parent body.
If you are considering be a part of the Friends team then please speak to the school office staff.
Friends 10K Run and Fun Runs
It is now less than a month to go until the Welford 10K Run and Fun Runs, and its not too late to enter! If you think the 10K is too much to train for at this stage, the 2.5K Fun Run has plenty of spaces available. There are also plenty of spaces available for children in the 500m Fun Runs. Please use the EntryCentral webpage to complete your entry ASAP - www.entrycentral.com/welford10k
A reminder that there will be prizes (to be announced in Achievers following the event) for those children that have raised the most money though their sponsorship forms. Please be generous with your support.
Publicity is key to making this event a huge success. Please continue to promote the event by whatever means you can to family, friends and work colleagues. There was a spike in entrants at this stage last year and we are keen to repeat it this year. Laminated Posters are available from the School Office if you require them.
Volunteers are still required to help on the day. If you are able to help out in any capacity, please let the School Office know.
The school spends many hour rehearsing and preparing for the school Nativity play. It takes place in our local church and the Friends support the school at events such as this by organising mince pies (donated by parents) and Mulled wine to keep everyone warm and in the Christmas spirit. This year, after 4 years without snow, we surprised the children who came out of church to a wonderfully lit blizzard...what are the chances that there would be real snow in the village just 48 hours beforehand! Despite it being the second flurry the children had seen this week they had a wonderful time.
Many thanks to all the staff for working so hard to make the Nativity happen and the parents who donated money to the Friends, provided the mince pies and drank the mulled wine.
Friends Casino & Cocktail Night
The Casino & Cocktail Night was held at Wickham Village Hall last Friday, and was well attended and enjoyed by over 50 people. The Casino tables provided and run by Berkshire Events were a great success, whilst the amazing Cocktail Bar and Staff provided a wide range of extravagant cocktails throughout the night. Profits are still to be finalised but it is anticipated to be in excess of £500. A massive thank you to all that contributed to making the evening an unforgettable experience.
