FOWSA AGM Tuesday 17 November at 6.30pm
The Friends of Wyedean School AGM will take place on Tuesday 17 November at 6.30pm. We are a small group of friends of the school who support fundraising efforts. Since our last AGM we have supported a number of projects including a laser cutter for the Design and Technology department, a photography studio, specialist resources for the RS department and English trips to see "The curious incident of the dog in the night-time".

Come and join us to hear about future projects for our school and get involved!

Library Books: When the School decided to increase the range of books available in the School Library, FOWSA was asked to put up the funding. School Canteen Extension: In 2008, FOWSA contributed £6000 required for the much needed canteen extension.
