If you would like to be part of the Wellington College Parents’ Association (WCP), we’d love to have you on the team. WCP meet around six times a year, run events for staff and students and on occasion support fundraising events. It’s a great way to get involved in some key activities in the school calendar and feel part of the school community.
What we do: WCP is a group of enthusiastic volunteers who organise a range of events to foster a sense of school community and to connect families to each other and to the school. There are opportunities to be co-opted onto significant events like the recent Art Expo and the 150th Celebrations. We try to improve the experience of students, families and staff at Wellington College and we hope you will join us! The more involved you are in the College, the richer the experience for both you and your sons.
The Executive: The Committee is comprised of parents of enrolled students and each year a number of these people step down as their son moves on, leaving vacancies. Anyone interested in joining are always welcome! Other parents or caregivers who would like to be involved, if only to offer help occasionally, are encouraged to make contact.
Connection Events: Parents of specific year levels are invited to join us at school to discuss a particular issue of interest. Outside speakers are often invited. Topics range from NCEA to University Entrance to teenage issues. The events provide an opportunity for parents to meet other parents in the year level of their son(s) while gaining valuable insight from experts and experienced parents.
Helping Out: Volunteering is a great way to get involved with the school and meet other parents. If you would like to volunteer or help out in some way, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All Welcome. Meetings are held in the WC Staffroom on Mondays @ 7pm. 2021 dates are: 1 March (AGM), 13 April, 10 May, 14 June, 9 August, 6 September, 18 October.
