Celebrating our wonderful volunteers!

A well-deserved afternoon tea for our generous school helpers.

At Walhampton we are lucky to have a small army of wonderful parents, alumni and friends who support the school by volunteering hours of their time each term. In fact, we have nearly fifty regular volunteers who between them contribute over 500 days worth of time to the school each year.  

These fantastic people include: 
The Walhampton Parents Association
The Class Reps 
The Pre-Prep classroom helpers 
The Heritage Committee 
The second hand clothes shop helpers
The School Archivist 

As a thank you for all of their energy, handwork and commitment to the school we invited them for a very well deserved afternoon tea in the library where we served up delicious cakes and complements a plenty.

One particular team who have been behind the scenes supporting Samantha Allen, our Alumni Manager, are the Heritage Committee. Members include former pupils and staff: John Elphinstone, David Hill, Chris Knox, Ralph Montagu, Marc Pidlsey, Michael Walsh and David Whately-Smith. Along with our volunteer school archivist, Natasha Kirk, they have supported the progress of the alumni community, helped organise the school archives and been instrumental in the development of the Walhampton Heritage Guide. 

Thank you to each and every one of our volunteers - we couldn’t achieve all that we do without you. Please keep up the good work!

If you would like to help out in school, please contact Samantha Allen. We are grateful for support with all kinds of things - from identifying faces in archive photo albums to serving teas at the NGS Open Gardens day.
