Diversity and Inclusion Committee

Waynflete’s Parent Diversity Committee is a volunteer group that supports the school's commitment to diversity. Committee members organize presentations and discussions with faculty, students, and families. This year, the committee will host a discussion for adoptive parents, invite Colby College students and faculty to an identity workshop, and provide support for school events including a youth identity conference and a visiting day for college students of color.

The Athletic Council supports the athletics program, with a focus on Grades 6-12. We support Waynflete athletics through:

  • Athletic Council meets twice a year with the Athletic Director;
  • hosting a pre-season family picnic in August at the Fore River Fields;
  • assisting with the end-of-season awards ceremonies (three times per year);
  • assisting with the Snack Shack at athletic events.
