A Day in the Life

Friends of Warwick School

The Friends of Warwick School (FOWS) is relaunching in September 2019. We hope to have two parent representatives per house (for each of Junior and Senior School) to give us a strong committee of around 20 parents and friends of the school.

The President of FOWS              Head Master of Warwick School, Deneal Smith

Secretary                                     Nadine Parker  nadinehparker@googlemail.com

Committee Members:                Laura Brain, Karin Harding, Annette Waterworth

FOWS does many things for the benefit of the school and its community:- fundraising through events like the Winter Fair, social events such as wine tasting and the Head Master's Quiz, as well as help with practical matters such as the second hand clothing sales. There is scope to do more and we would welcome new committee members to assist with the organisation of some of the events and bring along some new ideas. Please email Sam Crane, in the Development Office if you would like to get involved.

Funded Projects
 

During the course of the year, The Friends of Warwick School are asked by various teachers for our help with certain projects. Here are the latest projects that we have helped with:

CCF

The CCF wanted to purchase a trophy, to be able to award to a cadet each year for outstanding leadership. There will be enough space to engrave the name of the recipient for at least 20 years. The CCF will cover the cost each year for a smaller version of the trophy to give to the recipient to keep.

HOCKEY CLUB

Replacement of rebound boards. With more boys now playing the need for more boards to help improve outfield and Goal Keeper training. The baords are particularly useful for training without a GK. The new boards link up and are more veratile and portable than the previous ones. 

The hockey club have also requested an outside speaker. Recent research provides evidence to suggest that music can have a positive impact on sports performance.

ART

Workshop speaker: Mr Ramsay would like to invite a leading artist to lead a series of three workshops that explore collage, screen-printing and casting.

MUSIC

Violin shoulder rests are needed for violin beginners to help with shoulder position.

DUKE OF EDINBURGH AWARD

Safety equipment needs to be updated for Duke of Edinburgh to make supervision of groups safer, easier and more reliable. Each group has a GPS tracking device with emergency buttons if required. The current ones are 10 years old and need to be updated with high quality tracking devices.

These are just a few of the fantastic projects that FOWS have raised money for at their events, including the Winter Fair and the FOWS shop.
