The most wonderful time of the year is upon us! No, not that time, the other time. Yes! Halloween. With all the costumes, and sweets and insanity, there is really nothing like it. This year it may look a bit different, but that doesn't mean it won't be fun! 

We would like to invite the children of Harris to take part in a socially distant Halloween Hunt! Scour the neighbourhood to find the houses of Harris kids that have Halloween decorations in their window. 

We would also invite those who create and display their crafts to leave a bowl of treats (and hand sanitiser!) out for the kiddos to...

What were the joyous noises we kept hearing all of September? Could it have been the sounds of happy children running to meet their friends in the playground? Or the sounds of grown-ups saying a socially distant good morning to each other? Or was it the sounds of adults skipping down the pavement and doing a jig whist the little ones go off to class? Either way, what a great start to the 20/21 school year! 

The first month of the school year has passed and we can hardly believe it. Over in FoHPED land, we've been having some great discussions around how we can continue to su...

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.

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.

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.
