Dab coffee morning

Although it was an early start, we were really busy serving our coffee and second hand uniform. 

Thank you to our super volunteer of the week, Heather Harrington who wore her t-shirt with pride and spoke to lots of Dab parents.  Find out more about Heather in our “Getting to Know you” profile below.

International week

We’re getting excited about  PTA’s International Fair. This year’s fair will take place Wednesday, 16 October from 8am-3pm in the Old Gym at Limanowskiego. 

 

During the fair, parent volunteers showcase their home countries through food, national dress, and fun games!

Students in years 1-6 will be given “passports” and encouraged to visit each table as they travel the world in a single afternoon, and our Secondary students will be invited to sample the international cuisine during their morning break.  

 

Please note that the fair as a Staff and Volunteer-only event! Parents who are not volunteering as a part of a country’s delegation are not able to attend the fair. 

 

If you are interested in volunteering to make food, provide decorations or games, run a table with your home country, or volunteer to help with a different country, please get in touch with the PTA’s International Coordinator, Nico Spirea

 

The deadline for International Fair table sign-up is Wednesday 9th October to allow the logistics and planning to be finalised in time.   

We look forward to hearing from you.

 

Until next week!

Getting to Know You....Heather Harrington

 

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 Nates 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?

Whats the difference between an man with a cold and a boxer?

One blows his nose while another knows his blows!
