This, the 2015/2016 school year and the 286th year of Wolmer’s, is a very special one for the Wolmer’s community. It is the first year, since the destruction of the auditorium in 1991 that the academic year has started with an auditorium. Other major triumphs in the year so far include extra-curricular activities and sports involvement as well as academia, particularly because many of our students have gained top placements in Jamaica and the Caribbean in many subject areas.

To commemorate this exceptional year we will be publishing a special edition of The Wolmerian, dubbed, “Excellence All-Round”; a one hundred page publication that documents all the major successes in the past year. Additionally, it will showcase the people who have worked assiduously to maintain the high standards of the institution.

The cost of this venture is very expensive, estimated at one million Jamaican dollars; it is in this regard that your sponsorship is being sought so that we will be able to meet the June publication deadline. In addition, your sponsorship will see you and your business engaging with the youth and endorsing excellence in academia and extra/co-curricular activities. You will also be reinforcing the idea that your business supports the education of our children and youth empowerment, as this is the way forward if we intend to contribute to the building and development of our country. It is also a means to keep the 2015/2016 year alive.

We greatly appreciate your consideration and urge you to contemplate the importance of your support, not only to the Wolmer’s community, but also to the society at large. Please contact student project coordinator, Aldane Walters (Head boy) and/or faculty advisor Mrs. Karen Gobern for more information. We anticipate your favourable response.
