Hello everyone, as the newly elected Boarding House leadership team we have the opportunity to enhance the caring and welcoming atmosphere in our home away from home. One of our initiatives is to create a collaborative cookbook filled with hearty recipes from all of our homes or families. Each recipe will be accompanied by a photo from the girls’ homes and a short sentence about why they chose the recipe. Currently we are in the process of collating the recipes from all the girls.

We are looking for expressions of interest to purchase our Boarders’ Cookbook. The proceeds from the cookbook will go to a chosen charity, and support our second initiative which is to create buddy boxes to help the settling in process for new boarders into the future.

The price depends on the number of orders received but we are aiming to make it between $20-$35. The orders would be pre-paid and our target is for the books to be ready by the end of the school year (so perfect for a Christmas present). This invitation goes out to all of our Walford family and community including present and past students/ families as well as friends of families.

If you are interested please email myself at with the number of copies you wish to purchase and the name under which it would be ordered. If you do not have a current student at Walford please attach your contact details. Please email by no later than Wednesday14 September.

Thankyou for supporting this initiative.

As we are almost at school holiday time to be followed by the last term of school, there is an opportunity to reflect upon the school year and the memorable experiences of your daughter/s and family.

We would love to know more about the successes and the highlights of your year.

We really appreciate your feedback which contributes to our program of continuous improvement.

You are invited to share your comments by dropping us a few lines to:
