Fundraising and WFA

Throughout each year our pupils engage in a range of fundraising activities.   Thank you for your support.

Through pupil lead discussion, our School Council agrees the charities that families will be asked to donate 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); and WFA, our Parents’ Group (Wallisdean Friends Association) raises money for many extra curricula activities (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:

Across the federation we took part in the NSPCC’s Number Day on Friday 1st February.  As well as doing some fun Maths activities, children wore clothes or a badge with a number or repeating pattern and donated money towards this annual national fundraiser.  Together, the Infant School and Pre-School raised £112.50.

We celebrate Harvest Festival at  St John’s Church  – with donations of tinned and dried foods going to our local for Fareham & Gosport Basics Bank

Across the whole Federation, our Poppy Appeal 2023/24  raised   £442.77 for the Royal British Legion

Our Children In Need 2023 Pudsey Appeal raised    £219.64   raised across the Federation

Christmas Cards –  raised tba for Wallisdean Infant School

Money Matters – raised tba – ‘Dragons Den’ style each year group competes to make a profit for Wallisdean Infant School. Once their items have been sold, each year group will calculate their takings, take away their costs (re-pay their business loan) and work out their profit. The children then decide what to spend the profits on.   In the past, the children have bought new items for their Golden Time activities, such as Meccano sets, puppets, board games and dressing up costumes

Thank you for purchasing individual school photographs from Frasers – in Autumn 2023/24 you raised £307 for the schools across the federation
