You are all invited to the first PTA meeting of the yearon Wednesday 18th Sept, 8pm at Bear + Wolf Cafe, 153 Fortess Road. Come along and find out about our plans for the year and how you can help support the experience your kids have at school.
Start the new school year by making sure you are on your class’s WhatApp group to keep up to date with PTA events and activities through the year. Speak to you Class Rep or contact us on TufnellParkPTA@gmail.com. Some classes don’t have reps yet – could you take on this role, coordinating PTA communications to your class?
A huge thank you to all who supported our Summer Fair last Saturday! The amount raised has not been finally calculated, but in the meantime, do enjoy the lovely pictures captured by Juliette Neel here in our gallery:
Thanks to a grant from the Siobhan Dowd Trust, a group of children and teaching assistants and reading volunteers visited our great, local, independent, Owl Bookshop in Kentish Town on Wednesday.
Each child was able to chose a book for themselves, a copy of which will be lodged in our new school library Each book will sport a beautiful book plate by the artist Lloyd Dangle giving the name of the child who chose the book. Huge thanks to the Siobhan Dowd Trust for supporting reading at our school and to those who volunteered their time to make the event happen!
Just a quick reminder to please remember to return raffle ticket stubs and bring in your donations of bottles, new or nearly new toys and Booty Bags for this Saturday’s Summer Fair. Booty Bag guide below, if you aren’t familiar with them. There are more bags in the lobby. Thanks!
Our school has been lucky enough to secure a place in an Artist in Residence scheme. This means that this term the artist Alistair Lambert will be coming into the school to work with children in all years to create an artwork for the new school building.
Alistair specialises in projects that unleash creativity and build community. For his project for Tufnell Park School we need donations of Tetra Pak cartons (juices/milk/milk alternatives). Please bring these, washed out with soap (so they don’t start to smell!) and squashed flat, and leave in the box in the foyer. We need all these in by 28th June so the kids can start crafting!
The PTA is subsidising this project, which we hope all the children will enjoy and which will allow them to set their own stamp on the new building.
Every year the School Summer Fair is publicised on Drivers & Norris Estate Agent Boards put up in front of properties.
We urgently need more board hosts! Each board that goes up raises £30 for the PTA to fund activities for ALL the children at the school.
The boards are attached with plastic ties, no nails will be used and they go up approximately 3 weeks before the Summer Fair (Sat 29 June) & are taken down shortly afterwards. If you are willing to host a board outside your property we would love to hear from you if you are not already on our list.
Please contact the PTA by email or via your Class Rep. We need all addresses confirmed by Sunday 9th June.
Thank you for your ongoing support. Email: TufnellParkPTA@gmail.com
