This week the parents of our new Year 7 students were given a warm Westholme welcome to Wilmar Lodge. The evening was a great opportunity for our parents to meet our wonderful teachers and get to know each other as their children embark on this stage of their educational journey.
Our esteemed guests were treated to speeches from Dr Robson, Principal, and Mrs Davenport, Commercial Director, as well as the details of Westholme life by Mrs Cowan, Head of Year 7.
As the evening progressed, our parents were able to experience the delights of our caterers, Thomas Franks, as they indulged in a sit-down meal, complete with a drink or two and some fun quizzes to break the ice. Our Year 7 Form Tutors joined the meal, sitting at the appropriate house tables, to share stories of just how well the new Year 7s have been settling into the Westholme family.
These are precious moments and we would like to thank all our parents that attended, along with our dedicated Sixth Form volunteers, and hope that the newly-forged relationships between parents will help guide and support our students through their years at Westholme.
As we are now able to meet together again we sincerely look forward to welcoming our Year 8 parent cohort to their event on Monday 27 September.
