Headmaster’s Welcome

The WPPS Vision is to awaken potential, empower, and inspire every boy to become a solutionary for our tomorrow. This statement reflects an ongoing focus within the school. We endeavour to awaken each boy’s God-given talents by offering a wide variety of activities and resources, from which each boy will be able to identify his own strengths, and develop them optimally. In unlocking this potential, our purpose is to empower and inspire WPPS boys to find solutions for the many problems that confront our world. This vision and purpose, we believe, is an educational imperative if we are to live in a peaceful, sustainable and just society in the future.
