The Lanesborough Parents’ Association has been in existence for decades and will, for the time being, continue to be known as the Lanesborough Parents’ Association (or LPA) post-merger with the RGS. Membership of the LPA is automatically extended to each parent of a child at RGS Prep and we welcome the involvement of all parents in the activities of the LPA.
The LPA has recently registered as a charity in order to be able to better support RGS Prep and its pupils. Our constitution is available here.
The LPA committee runs the LPA, working with the support of the school and the parents for the benefit of RGS Prep and charities chosen by the boys. The current committee is comprised of:
Co-Chairs: Aarti Shah, Lousie Jayaswal
Co-Secretaries: Gemma Bownes and Victoria Scopes
Co-Treasurers: Bhawna Menghnani
We are always grateful for feedback and ideas and are contactable via Classlist.
LPA Events and fundraising
The LPA works closely with class representatives and parents who volunteer to organise a number of fun fundraising events throughout the school year:
- The Christmas Fair is a favourite of the boys, teachers and parents! The Christmas Fair is run annually and gives the boys a chance to shop for presents for their family, friends and pets! The money raised at this event is donated to a charity chosen by the boys.
- The Easter Bazaar in the Lent Term and the Summer Fair in the Trinity Term are annual events in the school calendar. Both these events are fundraisers for the LPA which donates the funds to the school to be spent primarily on equipment for the boys or other ‘wish list’ items identified by the school.
- The LPA also organises social events for parents, such as the New Parents Welcome Drinks in the Michaelmas Term and the Quiz Night in Lent Term. The LPA also holds a few other ad-hoc events.
