Lunch Money Loans
 

It has become apparent that the number of students borrowing money for lunch has increased dramatically this school year.  Lunch money loans should be for emergency purposes only. 

Walthamstow School for Girls offers a Top-Up facility via sQuid enabling both students and parents to check balances, top-up lunch money, pay for trips and other sundry items at their own convenience. 

An automatic Top-Up can also be activated ensuring your daughter never runs out of money. 

A reminder to parents/carers that if you wish to pay for your daughter’s school meals by cheque, please make the cheque payable to ‘Olive Dining Ltd’.

All students have also been given usernames and passwords to enable payments to be made online via our sQuid system (see the school website for details). If you would like a reminder of your daughter’s username and password please contact Student Services.

Key Stage 3 Philosophy Club 

Philosophy Club for Years 7, 8 and 9

Have you ever wondered whether life is a dream or not?

Or what the meaning of life is?

Or how we can decide what is a good or bad action?

These ideas and a whole load more will be looked at in Philosophy Club - after school on Thursdays,  3:40-4:25, in room S07 with Mr Caps.

To attend all you need to do is bring a short note explaining why you are interested in Philosophy and what sort of topics you would like to discuss in the club.

Open to all students in years 7, 8 and 9.
