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, Athletics Days BBQs and ARTBOURNE, and helping run events like the school Sunday Funday. Recently, the WPA facilitated the redevelopment of the school’s playground which was opened in June 2021.
Term 3 2021 WPA events update:
Due to COVID gathering restrictions, the Junior Disco has been postponed, and we will schedule a new date for Term 3 or Term 4 as soon as possible. The Quiz Night scheduled for Thurs 9th September has been cancelled and we hope to hold this fun event in 2022.
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 8.50pm. These are attended by the Principal, Michael Bain or by one of his senior staff members along with staff representative (& current parent) Rosie Torbit. All parents are welcome to just turn up.
