Family 1 Family 2

Styrofoam (Styropian 5cm na 20m²)

Cement bags

Construction Foil

Electrical Cable

Pipes PE-X

30 litres of White paint

Family 1

After leaving an alcohol dependent husband, a single mother is living on social benefits with five children aged between 4 and 16 years old in an unfurnished house in Rybno.  The house is in desperate need of urgent renovation – the family are living with mouldy walls, rotten floors and sparse furniture.

 

Family 2

After the tragic death of her husband, a single Mother suffering from cancer requests your help.  She manages her own illness as well as caring for her two children who have additional needs; her daughter (7 years) has cerebral palsy, her son (10 years) has Asperger’s syndrome and muscle adhesion which causes problems with walking and abnormal development. 

With the help of Broken Ties, she moved to a communal flat in December, which she currently cannot afford to fully furnish.  The family currently only have enough old and used furniture gathered from family donations to furnish the children’s rooms.

 

Can you help these families?

 

Please do not bring large pieces of furniture and building materials to the school. If you would like to donate bigger items or require more details about exact specifications for these families, please email Sonia on her email  to arrange delivery or with any other questions. Thank you for your continued generosity.

 

PTA plotting and planning for 2019/2020

Using the information we gathered during our Big Conversation, we will be holding a meeting on Tuesday 7th May to which we invite anyone who would like to be more involved next year.  We have a couple of committee positions to fill and there’s always lots of space in the working groups for everyone. If you are interested, please get in touch with the PTA Chair

Getting to know you … Introducing Ana Kareska

 

Where would you call home?

Skopje, the capital of Macedonia where I was born, raised and lived until we moved to Warsaw a year and a half ago.

What languages can you speak?

Macedonian, Serbian, English and very basic Italian.

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

My husband got a job in Warsaw, so after thinking a lot we decided to see how it would be living abroad.

Who have you got at the school here?

Kalina in year 3.

Any other children?

Kiril, aged 4, who currently attends a kindergarten close to our home.

Any pets?

No pets for now, children are enough.

How did you get involved in the PTA?

I was invited by my dear friend and fellow parent, Therese, to get involved as it’s such a good way to get to know new people.  Once, I dipped my toe in, I got sucked along by all the positive energy of PTA volunteers.

I currently serve as the country representative for the Republic of North Macedonia and I volunteer at any events I can.

Best thing about volunteering with the PTA?

Being more in touch with other parents, getting to know more about other cultures and traditions, giving support to people that are living abroad for the first time .. now I am able to share my experiences.

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

I encourage all parents to give support when they can; it’s very rewarding and great fun.

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

I personally love to run and feel the city from a very different perspective.  My husband and I have degrees in art history and archaeology, and we love digging back through time, visiting museums, art galleries, any special events that are connected to history.  As a family we really enjoy exploring the history of Warsaw and Poland.

Can you tell us a joke?

A ham sandwich walks into a bar and orders a beer, the bartender says, “Sorry, we don’t serve food in here”.
