Fundraising and WFA

Throughout each year our pupils engage in a range of fundraising activities.  This year things are much more difficult, but this makes the fundraising we are able to do all the more important.  

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:

This year we asked all our families to deliver their Havest Donations for Fareham Basics Bank direct to           St John's Church

Our Mental Health Awareness Day across the Federation raised £292 for the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families

Poppy Appeal - £401.68 across the whole Federation

Christmas Cards - tba raised for Wallisdean Infant School

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

(Last year, before the pandemic, we raised money for the Royal British Legion, Children in Need, and the 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.  We also joined in with other local schools to raise money for Marie Curie cancer research and sent Christmas Shoeboxes to less fortunate children through the Rotary Club.)
