What is the Parents’ Association?
The LGS Parents’ Association exists to give both financial and volunteer support to a wide range of curricular and extra-curricular activities throughout the school year to help expand the opportunities and experiences for the school’s pupils. This support is extremely important in these times of tightening school budgets as the financial assistance helps to fill the gap where no support from the Education Authority exists, for example for the school library.
The PA organises a number of fund raising events throughout the school year, including the Annual Christmas Fair, quizzes, raffles, and other events such as the Fun Run. In addition, parents can volunteer during the school sports day and annual open house.
The association is comprised of parents and teachers who help organise and run the events. Meetings are usually scheduled once a month, at 7pm on a Tuesday evening in the school’s Spanish Room, with the aim for meetings to last no more than 1 hour.
Last year, the group donated over £4,000 to a range of activities in the school, including the school’s Achievement Award scheme, the new SENCO room, pupils’ clubs and teams, towards the cost of the school’s minibus and musical shows, and for the school library.
Our current Chairperson is Sheila Duffy, and our Deputy is Shirley-Anne Alcorn.
