Hello Bestmumintheworld and Chaddie
Great post Bestmumintheworld. We don't get many posts from WHSG parents. What did newdud mean by AOL? I wonder if it was supposed to be AWOL. Cheeky.
I too have daughters in year 11 and 8. They too are doing well and like it at WHSG. I love the communication between the school and parents. They keep us informed of everything that is going on and the progress your child is making. My year 8 daughter complains about the many tests, but it sounds good to me. Keeps them on their toes.
The new head who has been there a couple of years has made changes that have improved the school and is moving it forward.
There is a new PTA started recently and they are holding a quiz night soon. I plan to attend and am just getting my team together. It is a friendly school with bright, witty and polite girls. A few years back an old lady rang the school to say thanks to one of the girls who helped her pull her shopping trolley all the way home after she got off a bus on a cold icy day. That is just the kind of behaviour that WHSG instills in their girls.
