Our first meeting of the year was all about dates. We’re looking at a super-busy couple of terms and we’re going to need plenty of parents and families to help make everything happen in Tufnell Park style.
Put these in your diary:
Wednesday 3rd February – HSA meeting and drinks. The next committee meeting is open to all as usual, so come along to the Tufnell Park Tavern at 8:00pm for a drink and a chat with other members. We’ve often been asked to provide some social time along with the meetings, so we won’t knuckle down to business until 8:30pm.
Friday 12th February – Animated Film Screening for Safer Internet Week. Surely every parent in the school knows by now that our children in years 1-6 have been making short animated films – a Learning Treat funded by the HSA. They’re to be screened at the end of Safer Internet Week, aka the last day before half term, at 3:30pm. Don’t miss!
Thursday 3rd March – World Book Day. We’re anticipating a dress-up day for the kids with a global literary theme, followed by an after-school celebration of language, literature and food from around the world. Again, the start time is 3:30pm – watch this space.
Friday 11th March – Give & Gain gardening day. Business volunteers will be braving the changeable early spring weather to help get the school’s growing areas ready prepped for a wonderful gardening and cooking project. We’ll need lots of help from parents to look after our guests and lend a hand themselves. If you can wield a hammer or a spade and you fancy some mud and rain in a good cause, book this day off work now…
Friday 18th March – Sports Relief. The recent Football Fundraising Friday made £155.00 on healthy snacks alone without a cake in sight. Can we pull off something similar for Sports Relief this year?
Sunday 20th March – Santander Gardening Project begins… Families from throughout the school community are invited to come along and plant crops on Sunday afternoon for harvest later in the year. It’s a fantastic, term-long project funded by Santander bank’s community fund and you’ll be hearing plenty more about it in weeks to come.
