Friends of Wychwood

6th September 2018

Dear Parents,

My name is Noel Rainbird and I am mother to Phoebe, currently in the Upper Transits. I am also the Chair of the Friends of Wychwood (FoW.)

The FOW AGM is on Monday 24th September. It is at 7.30pm in the Music room.

This is your chance to raise items for the Agenda, hear a brief report of what we’ve been doing over the past year and when we present the accounts. It is also a chance for you to find out more and to consider becoming more involved. Do come if you can!

As a result of people leaving the school, several year groups are without a Form Rep, and we are for looking willing volunteers.

Being a Form Rep is not a hugely onerous role: we ask that you come to committee meetings, usually twice a term, and that you communicate with your year about FoW matters. You will be asked to be more involved in organising at least one FoW event over the year, and you are very welcome do more if you are willing. You would normally take on this role for 2 years, and we are very happy to have a job share!

We need Form Reps for those in Remove, Upper Transits, Shell, and Study I.

We also need a new Secretary. This can be someone who is also a Form Rep, or somebody who would prefer not to take on that role as well.

If you are interested or would like to find out more about either role, please contact me on

We welcome additional people who are willing to join the committee and take a more active role in organising FoW events, but without being a Form Rep.

Again, this isn’t too onerous. A smaller ‘sub-committee’ is put together to organise an event, and we make sure that a different group of people are involved in subsequent events. We fully recognise we are all very busy, and are limited in how much extra we can take on.

Please do consider joining us, in any capacity!

Helping the school support our girls as best they can is inherently worthwhile in itself.

On top of this, you will get to know more parents than you otherwise would, and we do have a lot fun along the way.

Many thanks
