Wolmerians and Friends of Wolmer’s, welcome to WAASF’s website, dedicated to providing information and preserving the traditions of Wolmer’s Schools.
As we celebrate our 22nd anniversary (Wolmer’s Schools 290th year of continuous existence), the WAASF has continuously increased its commitment to the welfare of Wolmer’s Schools, building relationships with hundreds of alumni and incorporating members with graduation dates from the 1950s to the early 2000s. Our monthly meetings include a variety of discussion topics, occasional guest speakers, development of the Association’s business, along with regular social gatherings. Our meetings provide a time of fellowship, networking and planning. Association news, activities and updates are regularly posted online. We also use social media (Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp and Twitter), e-mail and the traditional telephone call as information resources for those unable to make it to meetings, but who still desire to stay involved. Wolmer’s memorabilia are available from our online store and off-line.
Through this website, we intend to keep our members and friends of Wolmer’s updated on the Association’s activities and upcoming events. Our fundraising efforts are centered around assisting Wolmer’s Boys’ School and Wolmer’s Girls’ School to implement worthy projects, especially those that help to improve the overall learning environment of current students. Donations to Wolmer’s schools and the evolving No Wolmerian Walks Alone project are always welcomed.
In 2019, we are privileged and delighted to have the grads of the seventies join us to memorialize their years in the hallowed halls of Wolmer’s. This year we will specially commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Class of 1969 from both the Wolmer’s Girls’ and Wolmer’s Boys’ Schools. The weekend celebration will start with Happy Hour Meet and Mingle on Friday July 19, 2019, 8:00pm until… at Krave Restaurant and Lounge, 4519 North Pine Island Road, Sunrise, FL 33351. On Saturday, July 20, 2019, commencing at 7:00pm, the Annual Fundraising Gala celebrating Wolmer’s Schools 290 unbroken years of educational development in Jamaica will be at the Doubletree Hilton Hotel Sunrise-Sawgrass, 13400 Sunrise Blvd, FL 33323. Our guest speaker will be Wolmerian Dr. Lorna Lewis, President, New York State Council of School Superintendents. Emcee will be Mr. Leo Gilling, Education Chair of the Jamaica Diaspora. Wolmerian restaurateur and cabaret singer Parry Hinds will be our special guest artiste. Class photos and special gift tokens will be part of the Fundraising Gala on Saturday.
We remain focused on our cause and the purpose of our organization. As we desire growth in effectiveness, we encourage all Wolmerians to get involved – there is always more that we can do to assist our alma mater, improving the high school experience for current students, especially those facing various challenges.
AGE QUOD AGIS!
