While all parents are automatically part of the Parents Association, there is an open invitation from us to get actively involved. Wynberg Girls’ High is a richly resourced school and is so because of years of commitment from the partnerships she has enjoyed from parents, learners, staff and past pupils. We are custodians of this legacy for a short while. Let’s do it well together.
How you can help as a parent
Service in the daily running of the school
Parents who pray - a small group of Christian parents meet on Monday mornings to pray for the needs of the school.
A wonderful group of Grade 8 mums are responsible for providing and arranging the beautiful flowers seen in the foyer, front office and Principal’s office.
Giving Donations (financial or in kind)
We could use this to contribute to our bursary fund; we could continue to keep our classes small, attract top teaching staff; we could continue developing and maintaining our infrastructure; honour our commitment to adopting sustainable and environmentally sound practices - these are just some of the ways your contribution could make a difference.
Offer your professional skills
Giving of your time and expertise contribute immeasurably to our growth as a school.
Support Fundraising Initiatives
MySchool, MyVillage, MyPlanet - one of South Africa's biggest fundraising programmes. Every time you use your card at any of the partner stores they give back a percentage of your purchase value, on your behalf, to us at absolutely no cost to you!
