Back on track with TPS Weight Loss Club

Don't despair! Come along to TPS Weight Loss Club and get all cleaned up.

Are you eating the cakes or are the cakes eating you?

Happy New Year with all its good intentions.  Because, you know, sometimes dreams do come true…

On Monday 11th January, Tufnell Park School sponsored Weight Loss Club kicks off for a fourth successful year, and runs every Monday for the first half of term. You don’t even have to be at the school to join: everyone in the community is welcome. So if you really want some help making changes to your eating, come along to the Nursery at 8:00pm for a discreet weigh-in. We will never shout out your weight to the room!

The club is supervised by qualified local nutritionist Amber Silverman of Nutrition for Health, who donates her time to help the school. This year, after months of heroic research involving literally kilometers of spiralized courgette, Amber is also able to offer specific advice – including recipes – to support the 5:2 method.

We try to keep our members entertained – and even inspired – with a range of high-quality information, including guest speakers, and emphasize healthy eating and exercise rather than any particular diet product.

Finally, there’s no charge for the club but it IS a fundraiser for Tufnell Park School HSA and has raised almost £3,000 for school projects since January 2013.

Donate whatever you wish at the club or on Or, if you’re feeling brave, motivate yourself by getting sponsorship for your weight loss from family or friends. It works.

2015 Fun Run – coming right at you

Get out of their way! Our kids are unstoppable.

Get out of their way! Our kids are unstoppable.

June passes faster than a speeding 9-year old, and in just one week it’s Fun Run time again. Please support the children in their truly terrific feat, running 200m laps around the grounds for 20 minutes, come rain or shine. And if you sponsor via the dedicated BT MyDonate website, we raise a full 25% more through gift aid. Here’s that all-important link:

The more people who come along to cheer them on, the better – it really helps them to keep going.  Find out when your child’s class is running, below:

Lace up those trainers: Fun Run this Friday

“Dry, settled conditions are expected to continue…” says the weather forecast for Friday 12th September. That’s great news for this year’s adults’ fun run at 4:30pm on Tufnell Park playing fields this Friday. Please come along and race, skip, hop or crawl for 5K or 10K – teenagers and ex-pupils are welcome, too – and don’t forget to get sponsors for your effort.

The website for donations is open: click here.

We also need people to pour water, stamp lap counters, keep an eye on runners’ children and of course, jump up and down and cheer, so come along even if you’re not running.  An informal drink at the Tufnell Park Tavern afterwards will give you a chance to toast the participants and, if you’ve not already done so, meet Martin Scarborough, our new headteacher. It’ll be a lovely way to end the first full week of term.
