Wolfson Hillel Jewish primary hosted 280 grandparents to a morning at the school in Southgate to discover how their grandchildren learn and thrive in a warm and stimulating environment.
The event organised by the PTA started with a lively medley of songs from the school choir, accompanied on the piano by Head of music Jackie Ferber. A presentation by the Headteacher Kirsten Jowett followed who spoke about the Ofsted inspection of March 2017 in which the inspectors found Wolfson Hillel to be an outstanding school in all areas. Ms Jowett also highlighted the rounded education the children enjoyed covering the National Curriculum, British values, Jewish studies, personal development and enrichment programmes.
The head of the PTA remarked that £27,000 had been raised in the past year to enhance the facilities of the school, and now thanks to funding by the Wolfson Foundation computers would be available for every child in years 3 to 6. The fund raising for 2018 will aim to provide additional computers for the younger children.
The grandparents were invited to visit their grandchildren’s classroom and to take part in a fun recall of school life two generations ago.
