Parents of Willington (POW)
‘Parents of Willington’ (POW) is a friendly team of parent volunteers who enjoy contributing to the wider life of the school. Be it through raising money for specific school projects, creating fun activities for the children or organising social events for the parent body, POW is an integral part of the school community.
Last academic year, we supported the school in purchasing new music and media equipment as well as a range of playground resources. The Summer Ball (and the children’s healthy appetite for cakes at our termly cake sales!) also helped us to support our local charity, The Wimbledon Guild. We are proud of our contributions to both local and international charities through our fundraising events. In addition to this, POW also holds regular second-hand uniform sales; these are always very popular as the children seem to grow taller and quicker with each passing term!
Some of our popular ‘highlight’ events across the year include the festive Christmas Fair, the muddy Football Tournament, the glamorous Summer Ball and the very competitive Quiz Night! This year, we will also be co-hosting our first Fireworks Night event which we hope will be a huge success and great fun for Willington families.
