TOP YOUTH COUNCIL
We are very proud that we currently have 3 members
on Waverley Borough’s Top Youth Council. These
pupils are Colin Zack (8BWA), Jamie Wiggins (8BWA)
and Jack Hall (7VLU). If your son or daughter is
interested in becoming involved, please ask them not to
hesitate to talk to one of the boys, or to me as soon as
possible. The Youth Council meets regularly to discuss
Waverley-wide youth issues and is also involved in
deciding where youth funds are spent.
Mrs De la Cruz, Pupil Voice Co-ordinator
SAFEGUARDING YOUR CHILD
Are you concerned about the dangers of the internet,
social networking or cyber bullying?
We are very fortunate to
have Mark Williams-Thomas
as a parent, who is an expert
in the field of child protection
and safeguarding. You may
have seen him on several
high profile television
programmes covering this subject.
He has kindly offered to come into school to run a
session for both Woolmer Hill parents and those from
our feeder schools during the summer term. The date
will be confirmed before Easter.

The word count total for the lower school now stands at an
astonishing 83,648,348 words. Woolmer Hill’s success has come to the
notice of several secondary schools in the area and we have provided
advice to schools stretching from Guildford and Cranleigh to Farnham
A plea - please look around you child’s bookcase. We have a large number
of overdue books and it would be great to get those errant books back into
circulation. Thank you.
Mrs J Maclean, School Librarian
The Tesco voucher scheme will be starting again from 12 March 2012
and we will be collecting them as usual. Every single one is important
so please make sure they all find their way into school.
During this cold weather it is important that all pupils are wrapped up
warm on their way to and from school and outside at break times.
Coats, hats, scarves and gloves can be worn at these times, but must
be removed when pupils are in the buildings and should not be worn
in lessons. Some pupils may also need to wear warm boots on their
journey, which should then be changed on arrival.
As in many schools which hold high standards, hoodies are not allowed
as they do not look smart with a school uniform. Pupils have been
reminded that hoodies will be confiscated.
Together we can make sure that our pupils stay warm and healthy and
still arrive at school in a frame of mind to learn, whilst ensuring that we
have a smart reputation to be proud of.
Mr K Doherty, Assistant Head, [email protected]
There is an outbreak of head lice among some of our pupils. Please check your children’s hair
regularly and treat accordingly. Thank you.
Ms M Chandler, Pupil Support & Guidance
SAINSBURYS ACTIVE KIDS VOUCHERS
Active Kids vouchers will be available from 15 February and we will be
collecting them. Please send any vouchers into school as normal.
