In cooperation with Aim High Charity (Stowarzyszenie Mierz Wysoko www.mierzwysoko.org.pl) we will be collecting old, used and even partly damaged bikes for all ages, as well as any equipment related to bikes such as helmets, tools etc.  If you have an old bike, please bring it and donate it to a charitable project. The bikes will be repaired (some used as source of spare parts), painted and used by children cooperating with the charity. Children will have to do some volunteering work to get the bike.  The rest of the bikes will be sold and the money will pay for children’s tutoring.  The project is held in Praga district.

Please do not bring any large items to the school. You may contact Sonia at ptacharities.tbs@gmail.com with any questions and to arrange delivery of large items.

Thank you for your continued generosity.

Getting to know you …

Elaine Hiser

Where would you call home?

This is a difficult question now isn’t it?

I grew up in the sunny, sub-tropical Yorkshire Dales where the sun shines everyday – as participants in the recent Biology field trip to Malham Cove can bear witness to, but I spent most of my young adult life in equally sub-tropical Glasgow where a piece of my heart will always remain.  However, we spent 10 years between Manchester and Liverpool, and all our children were born there, so a piece of heart will always belong there as well.  As we come to prepare to leave Warsaw, I suspect I’m going to be leaving a piece of my heart here too.

What languages can you speak?

English and Yorkshire, I also have a complete comprehension of Glaswegian.

Who have you got at school here?

Lewis, year 8, Will, year 5 and Isla in year 3.

Any other children?

Not that I’m aware of.

Any pets?

YES!

Two hairy hounds, Kerra, a beautiful soul – 15 years old, a bit wobbly, but still enthusiastic about life.  Coll, our 18-month-old wiry haired Vitzla (think Floppy from Biff and Chip), who’s a hairy hooligan.

We’ve also had a succession of fish bequeathed to us by friends leaving Warsaw, but my talents do not lie in fish keeping and we seemed to see off a lot of fish.  I donated the inherited fish tanks to the biology department and the Harrington family to ensure that we were not tempted restock the tank.  I think the biology department are having more success with the fish, than the Harringtons.

How did you get involved in the PTA?

Reluctantly.

I took over as country representative for the UK in 2015.  I baked scones and welcomed fellow Brits to Warsaw.  I also used to love organising mega play dates, where we got together in different local parks & children’s play areas for both children & parents to get to know each other.

What do you do with the PTA?

I was then further ensnared through the class friend role for Lewis & Isla, eventually also inheriting Will’s class.  From there I took on the role of Secretary, and finally this year, Chair of the PTA.

Best thing about volunteering with the PTA?

The people! 

I think pretty much everybody has said the same thing, but it’s been a fantastic way to get to know other wonderful parents, children and the teaching staff.  I love all the collaborative working and feeling like we are a supporting, friendly network of enthusiastic, fun loving people who offer a friendly, approachable face to new and returning families.  I also really appreciated the chance to be able to support local and children’s charities through the work of the charities team; knowing that the effort from school has a direct impact on the lives of others is amazing.

I’ve loved being allowed into school and getting to see the children in their world, doing their thing.  My children are still young enough that I think they appreciated seeing me around school as well.

I have been blown away this year by the fantastic response we’ve had from the school community to the changes we’ve made to the PTA.  Every time, we’ve tried something new, we’ve been overwhelmed with your generous & positive response, we’ve had so many enthusiastic volunteers for every aspect of our work, even our lost property sorting team – possibly the least glamourous job – has grown this year.

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

Do it! 

It’s worth it just for the t-shirt.

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

So many things.

Any time we have been lucky enough to share here with such great friends who have really enriched our lives here in Warsaw in countless ways it almost didn’t matter what we were doing, but maybe should make mention of dog walking by the Vistula, toasting sausages in the forest at Powsin, cycling on the great cycle networks, reading books with the two book clubs I was lucky enough to join, and after this week I guess I need to add tap dancing.

Can you tell us a joke?
