Year 7 G.R.E.E.N. Exhibition - Invitation to Parents

Our Year 7 GREEN exhibition will be held on Thursday 28th June 16.00-18.00.

This is an opportunity for the Year 7s to showcase their GREEN skills (Growth,  Resilience, Energy, Empathy, Newness) as well as making progress in their subjects.

The project theme is ‘Identity’.  All Year 7s will be working on finalising their best work to display for the exhibition.  Every one of our Year 7 students will be displaying a self-portrait and a piece of poetry.  It is important that they work hard to make sure they present their best work and that they feel proud of their work.

The exhibition will also act as a fundraiser event for a charity chosen by the students - Fairy Bricks - a small charity that provides Lego sets to children in hospital.

Thank you in advance for all of your support – we look forward to seeing you in next week.

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.
