Our 2017 Annual General Meeting was held in the WGC Atrium at 5.15pm on Wednesday 22 March. Parents are welcome to attend any of our meetings.
We have a WGCPA distribution list of parents interested in receiving emails on upcoming seminars and events, the minutes and reports from our regular meetings, as well as the occasional request for help. Email us on firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to be included.
We sell second-hand uniforms as a service to parents. It is also an important source of funds for donation to the school. We accept good quality uniforms to sell on behalf of parents, returning 70% of the purchase price to the parent for items sold within a year and retaining a 30% commission. Parents can also choose to donate uniforms.
We have very little stock at present, so would appreciate any uniforms you may no longer need. Please drop uniform items off at the Student Office after completing the Second-Hand Uniform Sales Online Form. This form must be complete to enable us to pay you. We occasionally receive uniforms with no form and in this instance, can only process them by selling them as donated items.
We gratefully accept all uniforms for donation but would like them to be in the same condition as those submitted for sale.
Please read the ‘Conditions of Sale’ and adhere to these guidelines when sending in your uniforms.
