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.
Members of PTA
Talya Morris (PTA co-chair)
“I have had a long connection with Sacks Morasha, being involved at the outset in setting up the school and then helping to shape its direction as a governor for many years. I have four children, three of whom are at the school. By day, I am a lawyer working at Ofwat, the water regulator, where I make sure water companies stay financially strong so they can continue to supply everyone with clean and reliable water.”
Judy Zinkin (PTA co-chair)
“I am from Glasgow, and have lived in Hendon for 10 of the past 15 years (the other 5 having been in Jerusalem). I am a primary school teacher, and am enjoying being on the other side of school business whilst at home with my youngest child. My eldest 2 children, Yael and Rafi, are both at Sacks Morasha. In my spare time I like to read, bake and watch Netflix with my husband, Ed, a rabbi and teacher.”
Vicki Morris (PTA co-chair)
“I feel I was always destined to have a child at Morasha. It’s the kind of school that best represents us as a family. I am originally from Manchester and have previously worked for JNF as a fundraiser. I have held a career in fundraising for various charities and before that I managed fine dining in modern European restaurants having qualified as a chef from university. I am the mother of 4 boys, Jacob, Asher, Reuben and Lev, who are either currently attending Morasha or have already left on to high school. I hope I can represent the Morasha PTA well and help it go from strength to strength.”
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.
