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.
The LGS Parents’ Association is organising a Fun Run on Thursday 26th April. There will be a 1km route and a 5km route both starting and finishing in the school grounds, starting at 7pm. The cost for entry is £2 for U18/school pupil and £5 for adults.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
The Parents’ Association would like to thank everyone who supported our annual Craft Fair on November 23rd.
We are delighted to report that we raised £1300 which will be used in the school to benefit all LGS students.
The festive evening was a huge success with everyone enjoying the Culcrow Primary School Choir and the Limavady Grammar School Traditional Band while getting in a bit of Christmas shopping. Thank you to the students and teachers who shared their musical talents on the evening.
Many thanks to the stall holders for their support and to those teachers, prefects and parents who kindly volunteered their help on the night. A big thank you also goes to the parents of the year 8 students who donated items for the popular raffle hampers.
The school was bright and cheerful and we would like to thank Macosquin Primary School for once again lending us their beautiful lights and Sainsbury’s for donating Christmas decorations.
A lot of work goes on behind the scenes and we are grateful to parents and teachers who played a key role in the months leading up to the event and to the administration staff in the front office and caretakers who support the Parents’ Association year round.
We couldn’t do it without you!
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. Watch this space for next year’s event!
