Charity Spend

The PTA charity committee met to discuss where to donate the 11,000 zl remaining from the Christmas Giving Tree cash donations. There was a unanimous decision to give the funds to the Pankracy Foundation who will fund holiday trips in the Gdansk and Sopot children’s homes. These are the homes that we visited in December with gifts donated by TBS community as part of the Christmas Giving Tree project. Santa continues to deliver presents during the summer! We will give you more details after the summer break. Thank you again for your incredible generosity.

 

Events this week

Dabrowskiego coffee morning and second-hand uniform sale Friday 14th June

Very happy to spend time with Dabrowskiego parents at our final coffee morning and uniform sale.  Thank you to our amazing volunteers, particularly to Jelena who brought the uniforms over from Limanowskiego and to Karina, as always, for providing the best coffee.

 

 

Uniform Sale – two for the price of one!

Thank you to yet more fantastic volunteers who helped us open the second hand uniform shop for 4 days this week.  We enjoyed seeing so many of you stock up.

 

Uniform Donations

Please don’t forget, we will now start collecting any clean, good condition uniform you no longer need for our second hand shop.  Please leave your donations with Pani Ania at Dabrowskiego and at Reception at Limanowskiego?

 

There will be a non-uniform day on the last day of term, Friday 28th June, for any final donations.

Upcoming events

Secondary sports day 24th June

If you would like to be part of secondary sports day and have time on the 24th June, we’d love to hear from you.  We provide a tuck shop for the students and need just a few people to prepare and serve the food.  It’s a great day and a really fun event to be part of.

 

If you would like to volunteer, please get in touch with Dagmar via email

As part of our 2 for 1 week, I’m very happy this week to be able to introduce two of our fabulous volunteers.

Where would you call home?

 

I grew up in England and dreamed of traveling the world and speaking multiple languages. Our five years in Poland is the longest I have lived in one place since my teenage years, and after also living in Hungary and Ukraine, I think Central Europe definitely feels like home to me now. 

What languages can you speak?

 

English (constantly!) French, German, Hungarian, Russian and Polish. All in order of learning rather than proficiency. 

 

Who have you got at school here?

Finlay in year 4, and Nate in Reception.

 

Any other children?

Perhaps my husband?

 

Any pets?

Not since Fish-mageddon last summer. The whole family would love a dog and we have managed a few dog sitting weekends, but as both David and I are working full time and weekends are very busy, no permanent pets for us. 

 

How did you get involved in the PTA?

After having my children in the school for a few years I finally volunteered to be a class friend for reception this year. I wanted to make a closer link to Nate’s class and Dab after being away from the campus for a couple of years.

 

Best thing about volunteering with the PTA?

Having a closer connection to what’s happening at school and especially in the classes. It’s great to see the children enjoying the events that are happening all year.

 

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

Just join in! There are all sorts of ways to help, and it’s not a full time effort if you cannot afford the time. 

 

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

Eating! Honestly, I think we are very lucky to live in a city with so many things to do and see, but, whether we are on a bike ride to a cafe, or we are calling at a restaurant after visiting the old town, food seems to feature a lot and the quality and variety never ceases to impress me! Of course, as we are living close by, there are many hours spent at Royal Wilanow, where I appreciate a relaxing coffee or ice cream, while the kids release their energy on the climbing wall or trampolines. 

 

One thing I appreciate living here is that we are getting to do much more sport, David has the triathlon bug, which means we are seeing Polish cities as we tour for the events, and I’ve been able to make time for cycling, running and tap dancing, none of these were hobbies in previous homes. 

 

Can you tell us a joke?

What’s the difference between an man with a cold and a boxer?

 

One blows his nose while another knows his blows!

Where's home for you? 

Home for me is my beloved Wales. It's green, it's wild, it's...wet. If I close my eyes and try to picture one of my earliest memories; I see my little 4 year old legs, trudging up a mountain path with rivers of rainwater running from my waterproof trousers and funneling into my little brown boots. 

 

What languages do you speak? 

My first language is Welsh. Many people ask me if it's similar to English.

What do you think? 

 

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

One day my husband came home from his office in Cardiff, as he'd done so for the past 22 years, and asked to have a word with me. He sat me down and said "I'm thinking of trying for a job in Poland". And honestly, I think I would have been less surprised if he'd said "I'm having an affair with your brother!" 

 

Who have you got at school here? 

I have Eiry in Y3, she has an obsession with nuclear bombs at the moment and Gwen is in Reception and cuddles me so much I have a permanently cricked neck. 

 

Any other children? 

Two is enough. Mine have a very low attention span and can easily do 6 or 7 activities before lunch time. I found the Summer holidays absolutely exhausting and on the first day back at school I did a little dance outside the gates beside the guards. 

 

Any pets? 

I can't be trusted with pets. 

 

How did you get involved in the PTA? 

I offered to bake a cake. Unfortunately, it was disgusting as I couldn't read the polish packaging on any of the ingredients. I may have used potato flour, to this day I have no idea. 

 

What do you do with the PTA? 

Help with sports day, welcome parents to coffee mornings, help with lost property and bake. I bake a lot! 

 

Best thing about volunteering with the PTA? 

Bringing baked goods to an event but eating someone else's! 

 

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

It's a great opportunity to feel part of a community here. You find your tribe. 

 

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

Going out for meals. I love takings our girls out to restaurants here and I used to hate doing it in the UK. Polish restaurants are so child friendly. 

 

What's the funniest thing that's happened to you here in Warsaw? 

I went for a swim at Wodny Park with both girls during our early days here in Poland. We arrived early and were the only ones showering before our swim. We spent hours at the pool and when it was time to leave the 3 of us returned to the ladies shower room, stripped naked and got shampooing. A few moments later 3 men walked in. It was in fact the men's showers, turns out that understanding basic polish signs is very useful!
