Associations

Parents' Guild

The Parents' Guild exists to organize social events and to raise funds in order to provide additional resources and equipment that are not currently funded from the school's annual budget.

 

The Guild has funded various projects including a donation of £7,000 towards a new sound system in the main School hall, £2,000 towards equipment for the new Fitness Suite in the PE department, over £2,000 towards a specialist Piano for the Music department and many more valuable contributions to various school departments. In 2011 we provided the Centenary Garden as a centenary gift to the school, costing £12,000, our largest project to date.

 

Annual events organised by the Guild include fun Quiz Nights, Punch and Carols evenings in December, the Easter Raffle and our annual Summer event in June.

 

The success of the Guild is entirely down to the support of parents and carers at events throughout the year. Regular information about upcoming events is sent to you via your daughter and in newsletters.

 

We also organise a Grand Draw. The purpose of which is to raise funds to help update resources for the school library, such as books and computer software. Further information can be found on the 'Grand Draw Information' page.

 

Parents' Guild meetings take place twice per term - generally a Tuesday - term time only. All parents are welcome to attend and help us to support the school.

Parents' Guild Grand Draw Information

The Parents’ Guild operates the Grand Draw, the proceeds of which help fund the library facilities, including books, periodicals, newspapers, software programs and upgrades to essential computer software. The high academic achievement of the school means the library is always in need of resources reflecting the wide range of subjects taught at the school.

 

The Grand Draw is similar to a lottery, in which shares are bought for multiples of £12 each, i.e. 2 shares cost £24, 3 shares cost £36 and so on.  For each £12 share you will receive one personal Grand Draw Number. These numbers are entered into the draw three times during the year - at Punch and Carols (December), Spring musical event (April) and during the Parents’ Guild Summer event (June).

 

You only pay one single payment for one year. To reduce administration costs it is preferable that you set up your own Standing Order to buy shares as shown on the Grand Draw form.

 

At each draw, you will have one or more chances (depending on whether you have invested £12 or more) to win one of six prizes, as follows:-  £250, £150, £100, £75, £50 and £25

 

You can buy as many Grand Draw numbers as you wish at £12 each. Your generous contribution will support your daughter’s education at WGHS.

Old Girls' Centenary

 

Well, we certainly captured a unique moment in time at the WGHS Old Girls' Centenary weekend, 100 years on from the school's opening in July 1911. Old Girls and former members of staff from the 1920s to this year's leavers were represented, which was wonderful, and the glorious weather enabled visitors to enjoy School indoors and out.

 

Photographs were taken, to make up albums for School, capturing those present at that moment in time. What we hadn't considered was that everyone would want a copy! When the photographer has recovered, and had a holiday, we will discuss how we are to proceed, but we are sure that it will be possible for the photographs to be available. Please be patient and watch this space!

 

Centenary books are still available, if you know of anyone who would like one. They are obtainable from:

 

Mrs. C. Ankers,

WGHS,

Tettenhall Road,

Wolverhampton,

WV60BY

 

The cost is £10 per copy, £12.50 with postage.

 

Cheques should be made payable to WGHS House Account.
