Our parent body is heavily involved in the life of the school through the Parent Teacher Association (PTA), which is responsible for organising many different events in order to raise extra funds for our growing school, as well as to create a sense of community amongst our families. We encourage as many parents as possible to help in the planning and organisation of each event.
Our governing body also includes two Parent Governors, who play an integral part in shaping the future of the school.
If you would like to find out more about the PTA and the events it runs, or you would like to offer to help, please contact [email protected]. Upcoming PTA events are listed on the Events page of our website.

Rachel Shababo (Year 2)
“I grew up in Chigwell, attending Ilford Jewish Primary School and Woodford County High School, and with my family we were members of the Chigwell & Hainault Shul community. In my youth I was a member of the JYSG movement, later joining their va’ad, assisting running their local meetings and bi-annual camps. I studied finance in Manchester and continued a career in this field first at Mizrahi Bank for three years and subsequently at Goldman Sachs, leaving as a VP in 2014 after having my second child. I now work part-time for our family business. I moved to Finchley in 2008 when I married my husband Daniel and we now have three daughters, two at the school and a baby at home. We are a part of the Kinloss community, attending the Persian Sephardi Synagogue, and I am keen to become more involved in the school community.”
Kate Kibel (Year 2)
“I’m mummy to Eliana in Year 2 and to Lyla, who is starting in September 2018. I’m from Bournemouth (originally Birmingham, but moved to Bournemouth when I was 10). My career was mainly at JP Morgan Corporate Actions. I then qualified as a Montessori Teacher and went onto running a nursery in London. I also love going to classes at the gym. I’m pleased I’m a class rep and involved with Sacks Morasha. It also makes Eliana extremely happy when I’m helping her school!”

Tali Kramer (Year 4)
“I am a class rep for Year 4 and have three boys: Eitan in Year 5, Alex in Year 4 and Gideon in Year 2. We are all Arsenal fans. I particularly enjoy being class rep as i love being organised and always help to arrange the annual Morasha/Kinloss Chanukah party. I am a runner and am involved in the Sacks Morasha running club. I have nearly two decades business consultancy experience and I am Partner at city PR agency Instinctif Partners. I lead and implement strategic campaigns for clients in industries including technology, retail, HR and consultancy. My clients include Graze, the leading healthier snacking company, Majestic Wine PLC, the successful wine company, and Inmarsat, the FTSE250 global mobile satellite company. When I am not at work or with the kids I enjoy exercising, entertaining, watching movies and spending time with family and friends.”
Sharon Hart (Year 5)
“I’m a mother of four children: Avi (20), James (12), Alex (9) and Sienna (18 months). My husband Richard and I live with our children in Hendon. James left Morasha last year after many happy years at the school and Alex is currently in Year 5 enjoying his primary education just as much as his older brother. I am a Nursery Teacher by profession and was thrilled to be able to work at Morasha as a TA and LSA for four years until I went on Maternity Leave to have Sienna. I have always loved the ethos of the school – as a parent as well as a member of staff. The community feel is so welcoming, and therefore I wanted to continue to be a part of that by offering to be Class Rep this year and to be involved with other aspects of my son’s school life.”
Jo Wacks (Year 5)
“I have three children at Morasha. I grew up in London and now work as a GP and a tutor for UCL Medical School. In my spare time I enjoy playing netball and spending time with her family.”
Eliza Goldberg & Tara Mann (Year 6)
The PTA runs a second-hand uniform ‘shop’. It aims to:
- cut down on wastage – if your daughter grows out of her nearly-new school cardigan and you only have boys to hand down to, what do you do with it?
- help us all out financially
- raise some funds for the PTA.
Please bring in any uniform you no longer need (freshly laundered) to the School Office in a bag labelled ‘FAO ELIZABETH NAGLER’.
The second-hand uniform shop will be going online as soon as we have enough donations. In the meantime, we’ve set up a Google Doc showing what we have in stock.
Suggested donations are 50p for non-branded items and £2 for anything displaying the school logo.
Please email Elizabeth Nagler if you would like any items.
