“As seen in the Islington Gazette…”

Rarely has Budgens looked so appealing as when depicted by Ursa for December 2016.

Rarely has Campdale Road Budgens looked so appealing as when depicted by Ursa class for December 2016.

Our beautiful 2016 calendars, depicting local scenes and events, are printed and ready at last.

For a full preview, including photos of some of the artists with their work, check out the article about our calendar in the Islington Gazette.  That’s right: the children’s creative output is finally getting the public profile it so clearly deserves.

Calendars are for sale at the school gates and from the office until the end of term – an absolute snip at £5.00 each or three for £10.00.  Thank you, long-term supporters Drivers & Norris, for helping us keep the price so low.

 

Through the eyes of artists

Our local area has never looked so gorgeous as it does on every page of the Tufnell Park School 2016 calendar, on its way to press at this moment.

A page for every class, with a mystery contribution from the staff each August... our beautiful calendar has become an annual event.

The organizers and our ever-generous sponsors at Drivers & Norris are busting every sinew to get these beauties printed in time to sell at Winter Wonderland on 4th December.  In any case, they’ll be available for you to buy at the front gate from then until Christmas.

Nothing screams, "Christmas!" like a giant wodge of cash.

Buy our raffle tickets – because nothing screams, “Christmas!” like a giant wodge of cash.

Meanwhile, spend those coins that are burning holes in your pockets on a clutch of raffle tickets for the fantastic Winter Wonderland draw.  We’ve got great prizes donated by many local businesses, including luxury foods, drink, family theatre tickets, meals and gifts. Your 50p ticket could even result in a handy £100 cash return… just the thing for a very merry Christmas.

Everyone with a child at Tufnell Park School will have had a book of raffle tickets in their PACT folder last Friday.  That’s Step One: to be in with a chance of winning, you have to buy them!

Completed stubs and cash should be returned to the school by Friday 12th December and the draw will be held on Monday 15th at morning assembly.

Our beautiful school calendar will be on sale at the school gates shortly – and it really is beautiful.  Once again, it has been generously sponsored by local property agents Drivers & Norris, who have been fantastic supporters of our school for several years.  They’re covering the print costs, so all takings go direct to the HSA to be spent for the benefit of your children.

You’ll need to hurry, though – we’ve got just 150 copies to sell…

The children have done us proud again with a gorgeous 2015 calendar, now at the printers' and going on sale shortly.
