What is the Parents’ Association?
The Parents’ Association in LGS exists to give financial support to a wide range of curricular and extra-curricular activities in school. They do this by means of a number of fundraising events on an annual basis, such as: the Christmas Craft Market, Fun Run and Easter Draw.
At its AGM in September each year the Association elect a committee of parents and staff who help to organise and run events through the year.
In 2015/2016 the PA donated over £4000 to a range of pupil activities within school.
The current chairperson of the Parents’ Association is Mrs Shelia Duffy.
For more information about the organisation or to volunteer your help for an event (Eg: Teas at the Christmas Market or Stewarding at the Fun run) please contact the school office.
Congratulations to the Parents’ Association and all who took part in the LGS Fun Run this year. A special mention to all the Limavady Central PS pupils who took part! Thanks to Marshall Howe and Qualivend for sponsorship. What this space for next year’s event!
** A Huge Thank You! **
The Parents’ Association would like to thank all those who contributed in any way to the success of the Craft Fayre, last Thursday night.
An amazing £1200 was raised which will be put to good use and to the benefit of all LGS pupils.
Despite sub zero temperatures and icy roads, many came along to do some Christmas shopping – thank you.
Thanks to all stall holders for supporting us. We hope the evening was a profitable one for each of you. A special word of thanks to Hunter’s Bakery for the fantastic cake they kindly donated and to Mrs McFarland for donating the sweetie jar.
Parents of years 8 and 9 generously supported our appeal for hamper items which went into the many superb hampers raffled on the night – thank you.
We are very grateful to Mrs Cromie for giving of her time to man the library stall and for donating the money raised, to the Parents’ Association.
Thanks too, go to the prefects and year 8 pupils who helped selling tickets, manning stalls and persuading folk to part with their money to guess cake weight and sweetie numbers.
To those parents who kindly volunteered their help on the night – a big thank you.
A lot of work goes on behind the scenes and we are very grateful to the caretakers for all their help, to Wendy Archibald for help with catering and to Miss Lindsay for managing mics and music.
