Lionel Primary School PTA
Our Parent Teacher Association is called ‘Friends of Lionel’. The Chair of the association is
Mrs. Jeanette Joyce and the Vice Chair is Mrs. Jacqueline Wilson. Both have been members
for over 15 years. Mrs. Mary Power (Treasurer), Miss Murphy (Community Co-ordinator),
Ms. Payne and Mrs. Russell are also committee members.
Friends of Lionel work hard organising fund raising events for the school such as the Christmas
and Summer Fair. In the past they have organised school discos, fashion shows and jumble sales.
Funds raised are used in a variety of ways. The most recent being a huge projector screen for
the school hall which is great for assemblies and ‘Friends’ are keen to use it for film and quiz
nights in the future. Funds are also donated for enrichment activities like trips, theme days,
workshops and shows.
Friends are always looking out for new members – parents who are willing to help organise big
events like the fairs, sell raffle tickets or man stalls on the day. They are hoping that as the
school expands more parents will come forward with ideas for future events and volunteer their
time to help.
If you willing to help at any event please leave your name and number at Reception and ‘Friends’ will be in touch.
All proceeds are ultimately for the benefit of the pupils at Lionel!
