Weight Loss Club shrinks so our kids can grow

"Where there's muck, there's brass!" Your donation to Weight Loss Club will help fund a really great gardening project this year at Tufnell Park.

“Where there’s muck, there’s brass!” And vice versa.  Your donation to Weight Loss Club will help fund a really great gardening project this year at Tufnell Park.

The triumphant finale of this year’s sponsored Weight Loss Club was on Monday night. Congratulations to the nine determined participants, who all stayed the course and between them lost a truly impressive 34.7kg – that’s five and a half stone – over  four weeks.

Nothing says “Well done! I’m so glad I didn’t have to do it myself!” like good, cold cash: please donate now at https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/weightlossclub4.  All money raised goes towards a wonderful gardening, growing and international cooking project for children and families at the school, starting this March.

And massive thank yous to all the speakers who gave their time and expertise to help make Weight Loss Club so successful yet again: Amber Silverman of Nutrition for Health, whose annual support is invaluable, Professor Chris Bonell of UCL Public Health & Sociology, Diabetes UK, Naomi Clark for exercise advice and the three Tufnell Park staff who inspired the group with their own successful weight loss stories.

Last lap for the Fun Run

Cygnus - Tufnell Park Fun Run 2015

What an effort! Cygnus come cruising in despite the heat.

Just two days until the end of term and there’s still time to get any leftover or forgotten fun run sponsorship money into school or – better still – onto the dedicated website.

If you donate online, every £10 you give means £12.50 for the school, so please have your credit or debit card with you – it really is worth it. And even if you’ve already given, just take a look at our fundraising total.  It’s an amazing £2,537.33 at time of posting: let’s dig deep and hit that £3,000.00 target if we can.

Thanks again to parent/ photographer Juliette Neel for her wonderful photos. There will be a full gallery of her fun run pictures on this site in due course, together with those from parent/ photographer Michael Preston (it’s been a great year for photographers in Reception!). We’re ever so grateful to them lending their professional skills to capture the day.

Put on ££s for the Weight Loss Club

The Tufnell Park School Weight Loss Club has done it again, with nine participants clocking up a total loss of 29.1kg in just four weeks. That’s a whole lot of healthy eating (and healthy not-eating) in aid of our “Love Your Lobby” project at school.

Oh, don't eat it!  Please don't eat it!

Oh, don’t eat it! Please don’t eat it!

Ah, but look at her now!

Ah, but look at her now…  Tufnell Park School Weight Loss Club works its magic.

To congratulate the participants for their heroic self-control – and to help us buy paint, brushes and materials for this year’s wonderful Give & Gain project – please make your donation at https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/tufnellparkschool6.

Go on.  Think of all the cakes they didn’t eat.

Don’t forget the Fun Run!

The gallery is now online for the Tufnell Park School third annual children’s Fun Run – click here to see some fantastic pictures.

And if you haven’t already, click here to sponsor the children’s magnificent effort: you’ve only got until Sunday 20th July – this Sunday – before the website closes for donations.

It's a shorter road when you run it together.
