WHO ARE WE?

Typically the last newsletter of the year recaps how we supported the school over the course of the year. For those who missed it, please see the last newsletter, below. 

The Virtual Summer Fair was a huge success! We raised £1070, a sum to be very proud of. Thank you to all of you who registered and donated! 

Our little superheroes trained, baked, crafted, quizzed, danced and hunted their way through the week. 

Enormous thanks to Phillippa, Gemma, Kath, The Teachers, DJ Jazzy J (aka James) and to Laura for all their preperation and incredible execution of the events. 

For goodness sakes, we had a professional violinist from the London Symphony Orchestra play for us! Absolutely incredible. 

We hope you all had as much fun as we did and we look forward seeing you al...

Our Summer Fair looks a bit different this year. 

We will be hosting not one, not two, not three but a FULL WEEK of digital events, culminating in one EPIC socially distant East Dulwich scavenger hunt!

Children are welcome to participate in all, or pick and choose what they'd like to do.

Weekday events will run from 3:30​ - 4PM.

Wednesday, July 15: Arts and Crafts

Thanks to all of you, Zooming to Fitness, our first virtual event, was a huge success!

The children did the Spider Man, Surf Pop-ups, Harry Potter, Thea's Candelabra and the Super Hero moves, while the adults did more tricep, presses, squats and burpees than they'd care to admit! Both were excellent classes with a lot of fun, laughter and strength training. All led by our very own PT, Phillippa!

Mr. Maslin joined the children and bopped along to some really fun tunes. While special guest, Ms. Conduit, broke a sweat along with the adults!

Thanks to all of you, we raised an incredible £1,567.63!

We might still be socially distant from one another but one thing the lockdown has taught us all to do is ZOOM!

This month we should have been running about Peckham Rye Park, after pestering grandparents and aunts and uncles for sponsorship money. And while we can’t get active together in the park, we can bring the activity to you at home!

We miss our school community and want to get together again, if only virtually!

So what are we planning?

We imagine starting a new job in these uncertain times is certainly strange! Especially if that job is to interact with the wonderful students and staff at Harris Primary East Dulwich and they are, for the most part, not there to interact with. 

Naturally, the kids are curious about their new Principal. So we invited them to send their hard-hitting investigative questions and set up a live Q&A with Mr. Maslin. We got to learn all sorts of interesting things about him, such as his favourite dinosaur, his favourite ice cream and what he and his family like to watch!

Meet Mr. Maslin Part...

Leading up to the Fun Run, which is on Saturday the 16th of May, organisers Hannah & Phillipa are providing an incredible opportunity to increase your strength, stamina and fitness level.

Beginning April 19th, a series of 4 boot camps will be offered. These exercise classes will be led by our very own professional Personal Trainer Phillipa who is not only a fearless and dedicated athlete, but really, really, really knows her stuff. In addition to running the boot camp, Phillipa will be available to give you a posture evaluation to help you make the most out of all your workouts....

Winter Term has brought some very exciting art competitions to Harris Primary. The Fourth Plinth gives our students a chance to create a contemporary piece for Trafalgar Square and the next two competitions are just as (if not more!) prestigious.

Summer Fair: The theme for this year's fair will be the Euros! Children are invited to create a football themed picture. Winkworth will be generously sponsoring boards and have agreed to feature the winning design on the boards! The children will be able to walk down the street and see their art proudly displayed. We think that is pretty incredible.

Fun...

For 2020, we decided to kick the adult events up a notch.... and by 'kick it up a notch' we mean bingo and power ballads.

That's right, let's get our bingo on, followed by all your favourite air-guitar playing, high note screeching, big hair rocking, heart wrenching tunes, that you just can't resist singing along to. Take your concerts out of the car and on to the dance floor!

Book your tickets (and sitter) today! Click HERE.

We are looking forward to an awesomely fun night. And if the mood strikes you and you want to tease your bangs, pop your collar or dust off the old Whitesnake t-shirt, we wo...

Winter Wonderland was a huge success! It was heart warming to see so many of you playing games, eating sausages, toasting to the holiday with some fizz, getting glitter tattoos and visiting the Grotto.

In total we raised £4,542.24! Congrats to all! This will go to funding the artificial turf and sun shade for the playground.

Massive undertakings like this need a host of people to make them happen. Thank you to each of the volunteers that manned a stall, moved a tree, dispensed a prize, grilled a sausage, donned an elf cap, and spread holiday cheer for all to hear. We are so very thankful for you...

The Friends of Harris Primary East Dulwich (but you can call us FoHPED for short) was set up in the school's inaugural year, 2014, by the first cohort of reception parents. 

 

Our primary aim is to raise additional funds to enrich and enhance school life for our children, as well as to nurture a strong, supportive and social community around our growing school.
