A wonderful International Evening

A MASSIVE thank you to ALL the helpers, cooks, and face-painters, the performers, and especially to Sandra Ibrisim, (School Home Support) who organised the event.  Here are a few reminders of the evening including the welcome banner made by the children.  The full gallery will follow.

The school was filled with delicious food from around the world cooked by our wonderful parents, carers, teachers and friends of the school.

“Tufnell Park: Our Story” with a huge world map and the poet Paul Lyalls was very popular.   There were painted faces and wonderful crafts and poetry provided by the Czech School Without Borders, London.

KS1 performed their tribute to Great Britain, with KS2 following on with a Turkish song and then KS3 took us to the Caribbean with their Mash Up!  The finale was provided by some lovely Irish dancers who kindly gave their time to round off some great entertainment.

Telling Our Story: Tufnell Park School

You could have heard a pin drop at assembly on Friday morning as the whole school listened to children’s poems inspired by their family history – memories of special places, traditions… and food!

Poet Paul Lyalls is working with children and parents this half term as part of our long-term community project, TUFNELL PARK: OUR STORY, supported by the PTA.

Look out for Paul at International Evening on Thursday 4th October (although in truth, he’ll be hard to miss).  He’s helping out next to a giant map in the school reception area, inspiring families to share stories of their history in Tufnell Park – and far beyond.
