PTA Corner

It’s been a bit of a breather week for the PTA committee as we, like many of you, scaled mountains of post-Green Camp laundry.

On Thursday, we held a Parents in Partnership Workshop for Secondary parents. We’d like to thank Louis Bezodis and Ann Byrne for their excellent presentation and thorough explanation of the Secondary curriculum. This was the first time we offered a Parents in Partnership workshop at two different times- once in the morning, and another in the evening. Please let us know if you like this format and would be interested in more dual offerings in the future.

Looking ahead, we have Teacher’s Day on October 14. This Polish holiday commemorates the establishment of the Commission of National Education, which is widely regarded as the first Ministry of Education in the history of Europe. To celebrate our educators, the PTA provides fruit baskets, and many parents volunteer to donate cakes. If you donate baked goods, please label your dishes with your first and last name and make arrangements to retrieve them at the end of the day. This is a wonderful day of celebrating our fantastic teachers and helpers.

Next week, the preparations for International Week and our October 16th International Fair begin in earnest. If you would like to participate, it’s not too late to sign up! Please contact our International Coordinator Nico for more information, or message us on Facebook. Many of our countries are represented by very small teams, so even if your home country doesn’t have a delegation, there are plenty of tables that would welcome another set of hands. As evidenced by last year’s photos, this is a must-see event. Please remember that pursuant to school policy, parents will not be allowed to attend unless they are volunteering in some capacity.

Finally, be on the lookout for upcoming information on the PTA’s largest charitable drive, the Christmas Giving Tree. For the past eight years, TBS families have generously contributed cash donations or gifts equaling 100pln. As the number of needy children have grown along with the strength of the złoty, the PTA is considering raising the suggested donation to 125pln per gift. We will be conducting a poll on our Facebook page to gauge your feelings on this change. Please vote and let your opinions be known.

We hope you enjoy this beautiful Golden Polish Autumn!

Getting to know you... Jelena Krzanicki

 

Where would you call home?

Belgrade, Serbia where I was born and raised; and London, UK where I most recently lived for almost 15 years.

What languages can you speak?

 English, Serbian, Polish, and basic French.

What brings you to Warsaw and what was your journey to get here?

My husband wanted to expand his business in Poland, so after thinking about it for a while, we just packed up and moved. I had previously lived (as a child) in Africa and also spent 10 years studying and working in the US, so this move seemed like a simpler endeavour.

Who have you got at school here?

Milena in Year 1 Whales, our gentle giant.

Any other children?

Jovana, she turns 2 next month and tries to join Milena’s class each time she is out of her pram at DAB.

Any pets?

Nope.

How did you get involved in the PTA?

Mirella Young, the DAB Coordinator, was literally the first person I met on DAB campus during the new families’ orientation day. I was on the PTA Committee at our old school, so Mirella had me signed up in minutes. 

What do you do with the PTA?

I am a Class Friend and I also help out with some event organisation at DAB.

Best thing about volunteering with the PTA?

All the lovely friends I’ve met and the smile on Milena’s face when she sees me around school. 

What would you say to somebody thinking about volunteering for the PTA?

Just do it! 

What’s your favourite thing to do with your family in Warsaw?

Sunday morning family stroll to pick up fresh doughnuts.

Can you tell us a joke?

How did the hipster burn his mouth? He ate the pizza before it was cool.
