The Friends of Wellington (FOW) was founded to represent our parents, teachers and other members of the Wellington Community. Once established in Hangzhou, the Friends of Wellington will meet regularly and contribute 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 will offer the opportunity to get to know teachers and other members of staff in more relaxed situations, and to learn more about the fantastic team we have here at Wellington College in Hangzhou. In our sister schools, events such as the International Food Fair, Breakfast with Santa, the huge Summer Festival, shopping trips and various evening events for parents are examples of the social and cultural sides of the FOW. The College and parents will collaborate on an ever-growing programme of charitable events that offer the pupils the chance of service and altruism.
So much more than a parent-teacher association, the Friends of Wellington is a key element of the school, bringing a rich diversity to the calendar. We aim to continue this tradition and spirit of community in Hangzhou, and invite parents who are interested in contributing to get involved, and play an integral part in College life. Any role, large or small, is valuable, appreciated and welcomed.
