WAPTA (formerly Friends of Woodwater Academy)

WAPTA (Woodwater Academy Parent Teacher Association) are a group of parents/friends who organise events for the enjoyment of the children and families of the school, as well as the local community.  We are also a registered charity.  Please take a moment to have a look at our website: http://www.wapta.org.uk

Any money we raise goes towards the maintenance of the swimming pool, which your children will be using during their time at school.  We have also in the past contributed a large sum of money towards the building of the Community Room together with paintings in the playground, a Nintendo Wii, a composter, polytunnel, a shed for the Green Team and the Year 6 benches which are on the playing fields and the Piazza.  Finally when the children reach Year 6, we pay for them to have a trip to River Dart Country Park, a leavers party together with a pen, medal and a wonderful Year Book, full of memories of their time at Woodwater Academy.

To fund these, we need to raise a good amount of money each year, we have events including the Summer Fete, Christmas Bazaar, non-uniform days, Easter Egg Draw, Discos and Bingo.

We always welcome any new members to our very friendly and informal group who can share their ideas and suggestion.  It is also a brilliant way to meet new parents.  If you are interested, please contact the school office or Kay Bishop (chair – WAPTA) on kay.bishop@wapta.org.uk.  For more information on the coming events please click HERE.

Thank you for your time and we look forward to hearing from you.
