Fundraising and WFA

Throughout each year our pupils engage in a range of fundraising activities.  

Through pupil lead discussion, our School Council agrees the charities that families will be asked to dontate to (eg Local Food Bank, Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal);  our staff run both learning and fun activities to raise money for the school (eg Money Matters, Movie Night); and WFA, our Parents' Group (Wallisdean Friends Association) raises money for many extra curricula activies (eg Christmas Magic Show, discos, special 'shopping days' etc).

In classes, topics and assemblies our children talk about the reasons for and ethics of fundraising and of helping others:

Havest Donations for Fareham Basics Bank

Poppy Appeal - £387.76

Rotary Club Christmas Shoe Box Appeal - 38 gift boxes

Christmas Cards - £145.75 raised for Wallisdean Infant School

Marie Curie - along with other local schools, our Yr2 Choir sang Carols in Fareham Precinct, raising £335.35

Money Matters - 'Dragons Den' style each year group competes to make a profit for Wallisdean Infant School

Children talked about the plight of the wild animals in Australia and the devastation caused by the extreme bush fires.  Families raised $559.90 (approximately £280) for WIRES (Wildlife Information Rescue & Education) in Australia.
