Parents, Teachers & Friends @ Weatherhead
Date for our next PTF@Weatherhead meeting:
Monday 20th October, 6.30pm, in Weatherhead's G Block Meeting Room.
PTF@Weatherhead meet informally each term to share thoughts on school life and to support or shape events to help the School and families here.
Our ideas and fundraising efforts so far have contributed to the behavioural reward scheme IRIS, the Library, uniforms, gardening club and most recently to creating a more vibrant outside recreation area.
We also seek to champion local initiatives as part of our community role and always seek new ideas and individuals to engage with.
PTF supporting Weatherhead
PTF are highly valued sponsors of Weatherhead Sixth Form 2014 World Challenge Team heading to Malaysia this summer.
|In 2014 the PTF raised funds to create a stylish outdoor seating area with wooden furniture and awning areas to encourage outdoor recreation come rain or shine!|
As parents ourselves we know how daunting Year 7 can be for new parents and carers as well as daughters. A new school like Weatherhead has so many new aspects for you all to fathom and we are here to help make sense of it all.
We must not forget that the parents/carers of students new to school in Year 12 might need extra support too. The university open days beckon and student finance looms. Some of us have been there already and can be a useful ally!
We encourage all new parents and carers to come along to one of our informal meetings.
Dates of PTF Meetings are posted on the website and also listed on the weekly Home-School Update.
Usually there will be a representative parent from each year group, or if not, someone who has been through that particular year can help.
PTF meetings will enable you to:
- Meet with other new parents and friends of Weatherhead
- Share tales and experience of settling in
- Discuss any concerns you may have about any aspect of school life
- Learn more about Parents, Teachers & Friends @ Weatherhead
We all look forward to meeting you!
