Thank you to everyone who has supported all our fundraising events over the last term. We've now got our big event of the school calendar coming up - The Summer Fair. Please see below for full details.
Come along after school for lots of fun, with three tombola stalls, raffle, hook a duck, coconut shy, cake stall, tuck shop, penalty shoot out, netball challenge, lucky dip, treasure hunt, soak the Head Teacher, inflatable assault course, pony rides, afternoon teas and lots more. The entrance will be from the bottom of the school field.
Projects for 2019
We are continuing to work towards improving the Infant and Junior yards. We will plan in more painting days, once the yards have dried up again after the recent rain. After many months of chilling out in a tub of water, the second willow dome has now been planted on the field. We have also started work on the recycled plastic bottle top mosaic which will be installed on the end of the green container on the Infant yard. Please see the poster below for more details of how you can help. Now we are nearly there, we just need RED, ORANGE and YELLOW tops please.
A little bit about the Friends of Deiniol
At the start of the new school year we had new names to learn and new friends to meet. The Parent and Teacher Association (PTA) decided that it was time to refresh their name and so we have changed it to ‘Friends of Deiniol’ (as it has been previously known). We are constantly on the lookout for new helpers and ideas and we feel that this rebranding will encourage lots of new people to get involved with raising much needed funds for our school.
We hope to include as many people from our school community as possible: mums, dads, grandparents, older siblings…..anybody who has an interest in raising funds and supporting Ysgol Deiniol.
Last year alone we raised a massive £2,500, helped to paint the school play areas, tidied up the yard and ran lots of exciting events, as well as helping out within the school. Any assistance you can give, no matter how small, would be most welcome, so we can do more of the same this year.
Our informal committee meetings are held once or twice a term and attendance is not compulsory. If you have any free time to spare, drop us an email at school, phone us up or even have a chat with Mr Baugh on the yard in the morning to find out what it’s all about.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
The current committee are:
Harriet Clarke (Chair)
Emma Darlington (Treasurer)
Jody Lloyd (Secretary)
Lucinda Aspin (Committee Member)
Debbie Mulvey (Committee Member)
Alice Mulraney (Committee Member)
Becky Braisdell (Committee Member)
Mrs C. Arrowsmith (Teacher)
Mr K. Baugh (Head Teacher)
The next committee meeting will take place on Tuesday 4th June at 3pm in the staff room. All welcome to attend. The main topic will be the summer fair.
We are always looking for new people to help with the work of the Friends of Deiniol, either by joining the committee or, for those with less time to spare, being an event helper, sourcing raffle prizes, making items to sell or distributing posters. All our events are run voluntarily and we would not be able to put them on without help. It is a fantastic way to become more involved in your child's school and meet new people. We are all busy people and any help you are able to give is very much as you can, when you can. Anyone interested in helping out is welcome to chat to any of the committee members (catch one of us on the yard!), drop in at the school office or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
