A very merry Tufnell Park Christmas

Christmas comes in all sizes.

Christmas came in all sizes on the way to school on Friday.

So… term ended spectacularly Christmassarily: jumpers, jumpers everywhere, with legion lights, baubles, robins and reindeer.  It was as if good taste had never been invented – fun and fabulous! – as well as raising a lovely chunk of money for Save the Children, MacMillan Cancer Support and Make a Wish, in equal measure.  In the New Year, we’ll be able to tell you the exact size of the donation.

The day – and the term – finished with the Tufnell Park Nativity: an altogether excellent production this year, with particularly lavish sets and costumes, great singing and very impressive delivery from all the speaking parts. For all of which, the HSA can claim pretty much no involvement – except that they are, of course, your children – and that photographer and parent, Michael Preston, kindly sent us the pictures, so you see them here first…

Friday is Christmas Jumper day

Jumpers at Winter Wonderland were out already - warming up for Christmas Jumper Day on 18th December.

Jumpers were out already at Winter Wonderland – warming up for Christmas Jumper Day on 18th December.

Don’t forget: this Friday is the chance for everyone at school to show off that Christmas jumper for charity’s sake. All pupils are invited to ditch their uniform for the last day of school and wear something super-Christmassy instead.

Parents and families, please feel free to join in, particularly if you’re coming along to the Nativity at 2:00pm.

If you wish to, add your donation of £1 to the Jumper cause and it will be shared equally between Save the Children, MacMillan Cancer Care and Make a Wish.

...like daughter - they've got the togs ready!

And if your child doesn’t have a Christmas jumper, some tinsel and a few safety pins could change all that in just a few moments… It’s all in good fun – and there are SO few other occasions for wearing pine cones to school.
