Committee Meetings


The dates and times of committee meetings are posted here.  During 2020/2021 they may differ from normal, due to current Covid-19 restrictions.  We usually aim to hold committee meetings twice a term.


Events programme 2020/2021

Due to the current circumstances we had to cancel all our events from March to July.  Going into the 2020/2021 school year, events and fund raising will have to differ from normal.  However, we are still here and will provide what we can.  Any ideas or help will be much appreciated.


Thank you to everyone who has supported our events. 





Tea towels remain on sale at £4 each.








Just before the end of the Summer term 2019, we completed the recycled plastic bottle top mosaic, which has pride of place on the container on the Infant yard.  It looks amazing from the road and provides a splash of colour to the outdoor area.  Many thanks to all involved who brought in tops, helped stick them on and finally helped put it up on the container.

A little bit about the Friends of Deiniol


In September 2018 with the start of the new academic 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 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 felt that this rebranding would 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.


In the school year 2017/2018 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.   Going forward, any assistance you can give, no matter how small, would be most welcome, so we can do more of the same in future years.


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!

Harriet Clarke (Chair)

Getting involved


We are always looking for new people to help with the work of the Friends of Deiniol.  You can join the committee, either in one of the main roles (Chair, Secretary, Treasurer) or as an ordinary committee member.  If you have less time to spare, you could give your time and expertise in other ways:

  • Help out at events
  • Source raffle prizes
  • make items to sell (cakes are always popular!)
  • Design and distribute posters
  • Update the website and Facebook pages
  • Help with external funding sources
  • Count money
  • Put forward ideas for fundraising
  • Help out at yard tidy days​​​​​​​


There are so many ways to get involved.


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


What are we all about?
