Annual General Meeting

A little bit about the Friends of Deiniol


With a new school year, comes new names to learn and new friends to meet. The Parent and Teacher Association (PTA) recently decided that it was time to refresh their name and 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)

Louise Morgan (Committee Member)

Lucinda Aspin (Committee Member)

Getting involved


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.  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
