Parents Guild Grand Draw WGHS Parents’ Guild operates a Grand Draw which is a simple lottery. The proceeds help fund the school library facilities including books, periodicals, newspapers, software programs and upgrades to essential computer software, plus various useful items that otherwise would not be affordable. The high academic achievement of WGHS pupils means that the library is always in need of resources including those which reflect the wide range of subjects taught at the school. Parents/carers can enter the Grand Draw and buy any number of shares costing £12 each. For each share you purchase you will be given a number, these numbers are entered into a draw three times during the year, once per term. You have a much greater chance of winning a prize in our lottery than in The National Lottery and even if you don’t win, your money is going towards enriching your daughter’s school life! There are six prizes in each draw, as follows:- First Prize £250 Second Prize £150 Third Prize £100 Fourth Prize £75 Fifth Prize £50 Sixth Prize £25 This gives a total prize fund of £1950 which is won during each school year as we have three draws per academic year! Please complete Grand Draw Share Membership Form (please link to Form here). You can buy as many Grand Draw numbers as you wish at £12 each but you have to be in it to win it! It helps us enormously if you set up a standing order for your annual payment; once we receive your payment, you are then automatically included for the duration of your daughter’s time at the school.
