Wilbury and Icknield Schools Parents Association (WISPA)
Welcome to the new school year. We have some new (socially distanced) events coming up in October and we would appreciate your support.
Bag2School - Friday 16 October
Please fill any bag with good quality used clothing and bring it to the main entrance outside the school gates on the morning of Friday 16th October ONLY. Please do not bring bags in before this date as we cannot store them at school.
The bags are then collected by Bag2School (www.bag2school.co.uk) and we are paid 30p per kilo so the more we collect the more we raise for the school.
Letchworth Scarecrow Trail - 25-31 October
This year we will be running a free scarecrow trail during Autumn half term week. If you would like to build a scarecrow around the theme of childrens' book characters, please register before Sat 17 Oct via www.ticketsource.co.uk/wispa. There will be a prize for the most popular scarecrow so let your imagination run wild! Scarecrows should be suitable all ages and be on display throughout half term week.
Trail maps will be available in the week prior to half term. Keep checking our Facebook page for updates. www.facebook.com/wilburyandicknield.
Wispa is our PTA which is joined with Icknield Infant School.
Here are a few things we are involved in.
1) Terracycle collection point - Located to the upper floor of Bamboo Turtle (Zero Waste Shop) in the Arcade in Letchworth town centre. Hard to recycle waste can be dropped off at this point and periodically, the waste is sorted and sent to Terracycle and converted to points/monetary rewards. WISPA is a beneficiary of this scheme. Full list of items to collect is attached.
2) www.easyfundraising.org.uk - If you are planning on shopping online, go to this website and choose Wilbury and Icknield Schools Parents Association (WISPA) as your chosen cause. If you shop via the easyfundraising website, then WISPA will receive money into our cause account every time you shop.
3) Seasons Fruit and Veg Conscious Shopper Scheme - Go to https://www.seasonsfruitandveg.co.uk/ and shop for your fruit, veg and store cupboard staples (incl. Bamboo Turtle zero waste items). Enter the code WISPA01 at the checkout and we receive 50p for each home delivery. Letchworth deliveries are made on Mondays and Thursdays. You do not have to be at home for your delivery either!
