Projects for 2019


We are continuing to work towards improving the Infant and Junior yards.  We successfully planted both willow domes (by the stage and on the field) and they are settling in well, having enjoyed all the rain and sun!  Some extra painting of games has been done on the yards.  We hope to add to this now that more money has been raised, as well as funding a play project for the junior yard.  



We have now 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


At the start of the new school year in 2018 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 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 next committee meeting and Annual General Meeting (AGM) will take place on Thursday 12th September at 3.30pm in the school staff room.  All welcome to attend.  

Getting involved


We are always looking for new people to help with the work of the Friends of Deiniol.  You can join the committee or, for those with less time to spare, help at events, source raffle prizes, make items to sell, design and distribute posters, help with external funding or count money. 


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
