The Longlands Parents’ Association has been running for many years with the fundamental aim of raising money for the school and supplementing the school budget and giving added value to our children while they are at Longlands.
Over the last few years we have supported and provided so much for the school...
Wish Lists for Classes
Subsidised School Trips
Books & Furniture for the new School Library
Theatre visits to the School
Subsidised School Discos
EVERYONE IS THE PA
Contrary to popular belief, every parent/carer of a child at the school is automatically a member of the Parents' Association. The group is led by a committee of 4 (Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary and Treasurer) which we call the 'PA Team'.
The PA Team are currently made up of the following:
Joint Chair - Lisa Savage
Lisa has one child at Longlands, Harry in year 1. She has been on the PA Committee since 2014 where she started as Donations Coordinator. Lisa works 4 days a week as a legal secretary in London and also runs her own waitressing business. In her spare time she enjoys spending time with her family and friends.
Secretary - Michelle Short
Joint Chair - Samantha O'Donnell
KEY VOLUNTEER ROLES
In addition to the PA Team we have several key volunteer roles in a variety of areas....
