Lyneham Primary School Parents and Citizens Association Inc.
Lyneham Primary School P&C
Lyneham Primary School has an active and friendly Parents and Citizens (P&C) Association that meets regularly each term. All parents and carers of Lyneham Primary students, as well as anyone from the community, are warmly welcomed to meetings and other P&C events.
Being involved in the P&C can give you a better understanding about what happens at our school, as well as an opportunity to get to know others in our school community. You don’t need to do anything to join – just come along and get involved! If you’ve got ideas for activities or would like to meet more parents and families at the school, then we look forward to seeing you soon!
P&C meetings are held:
- Week 3 of each term - Wednesday 7pm in the school library
- Week 8 of each term – Wednesday – at a different time and venue (eg Tilley’s)
The P&C hosts many events throughout the year for to connect families in the school community, including our Family Welcome Night at the start of the year. Events for the kids include school discos, astronomy night and Pie Day Fridays.
We also fundraise throughout the year to provide extra resources for the school. Our fundraisers include:
- Tour de Lyneham, our annual rideathon
- School Fete (every second year)
- Barbecues and cake stalls, including on election days
- Mother's and Father's Day stalls
- Garage sales
With funds raised, we financially support activities at the school such as chess club, music soirees, Year 6 Graduation events, the school garden and the purchase of ukuleles.
In recent years, the P&C has donated money for technology equipment (ipads and chrome books) and upgrades to the playground area including bike racks, turf, line markings, and play-pods. We are continuing to work with the school on further playground improvements.
The P&C also runs:
- School banking
- Friday mornings Breakfast Club
- The uniform shop, which supplies brand new and pre-loved uniform items, and is open Wednesday and Friday mornings
We regularly email parents with news of upcoming events and activities at the school – if you’d like to receive these emails, please sign up here.
