The Parents and Friends Association (PFA)

Welcome to the Wallington High School for Girls Parents and Friends Association.  The PFA is a link between the school and parents and carers.  We are a lively body who enjoy running exciting events to raise funds which help the school to provide your daughter with a first class education, including a number of outstanding extra-curricular opportunities.  In our inaugural year, we held a Quiz Night for parents, a Year 7/8 disco in conjunction with Wilson’s and Wallington Boys schools and a barbecue for parents and students to welcome them into Year 7.  This provided a valuable opportunity for new students and parents to meet before starting at WHSG in September.  During the barbecue, new friendships were made which helped students to settle into school quickly and easily in the Autumn term.

We are now on Facebook WHSGPFA 

Welcome from the Chair

Dear Parents and Carers

I would like to extend a big welcome from the PFA. Click here to meet the committee.

Wallington’s PFA consists of a group of parents who are keen to raise funds by being active both within and outside school.  We run many different events throughout the school year for different year groups.  Last year we held a parents’ Quiz evening with a fish and chip supper which was incredibly popular, so much so that even parents whose daughters’ have left the school contacted us for tickets.    

We collaborate with other selective local schools to run joint Year 7 & 8 discos, always very popular events with younger students.  We have recently introduced ‘Coffee and Cake’ evenings, last term for Year 7 parents and our next takes place on 5 February for Year 8 parents.  We also hold a summer barbecue for students and their families prior to September; last year over 400 people attended this informal, fun filled event.  We also provide refreshments at some school events, free tea and coffee will be available at the forthcoming School Mentoring Day on Tuesday 9 February – please come and say hello to us in the canteen.  We’d be delighted to meet you.    

If you have any ideas for other events, please let us know.  It’s not all hard work - above all, our Committee have a great deal of fun!  

The PFA meet every month at 7pm in the staffroom where light refreshments are served.  All parents are invited to these meetings where we share new ideas and plan for the future. If parents are unable to join the committee and / or attend the meetings but would like to volunteer a couple of hours of their time to help out at our events, we would be delighted to welcome you!   Personally, I have found it a rewarding and valuable experience to be part of the life of the school and to meet so many parents and students from our school community.  If you would like to be added to our email circulation list to keep up to date with news of our forthcoming events, please email me at pfa@wallingtongirls.org.uk.   On behalf of the PFA Committee, we look forward to meeting you very soon.
