FRIENDS OF WELLINGTON (FOW)

I have been very lucky to sit as Chair of the Friends of Wellington, working with the many dedicated and enthusiastic parents who have added a really warm dynamic to the school and made it very easy for our family to become excited about the years ahead. Friends of Wellington creates a wonderful forum for parents to get involved in enriching their children’s educational experiences with fun activities. FOW can and will put every parent’s time and talents to use to ensure that ‘We Are Wellington’.

Friends of Wellington (FOW)

The Friends of Wellington (FOW) organisation represents our parents, teachers and other members of the Wellington College Community. It meets regularly and contributes to making life at the College vibrant, not just for the pupils but for all our stakeholders, by working to bring people together to share, learn and to celebrate.

FOW offers the opportunity to get to know teachers and other members of staff in more relaxed environments. Events such as the International Food Fair, Chinese New Year celebrations, Breakfast with Santa, the huge Summer Festival, shopping trips and various evening events for parents, all demonstrate the highly social and cultural sides of the FOW. The College and parents also collaborate on an ever-growing programme of charitable events which offer our pupils the chance to become altruistically involved in a number of truly worthy causes.

So much more than a parent-teacher association, the Friends of Wellington is an integral part of College life and helps create many of the annual highlights of our calendar. Any parents who are interested in taking on a role of responsibility, be it large or small, are most welcome to do so.
