Wellesley Parent’s Association
Families are the very heart of our school. The Wellesley Parents’ Association (WPA) is a group of Wellesley parents who foster that sense of community and help families to engage with and support school events, building lasting relationships with each other and staff, ensuring that the school always feels like a ‘big little family’.
The WPA works with the School and Foundation to support their initiatives and events. For example, coordinating wonderful parent volunteers for special events like Grandparents’ Day and ARTBOURNE, and helping run events like the school picnic.
Each year we have a great team of class representatives who organise class or year-group events which are designed to encourage engagement within the Wellesley parent community.
Joining the Wellesley Parent’s Association is a great way for parents to get involved, to contribute meaningfully to the school community, and to discover the best of what Wellesley has to offer.
We encourage parents and whānau to consider joining the WPA or to come along to a meeting and see what we’re about.
The meetings are held in the Wellesley staffroom and run from 7.30pm until 9.00pm. These are attended by the Principal, Brendan Pitman or by one of his senior staff members. All parents are welcome to just turn up.
