Camrose Primary School

Parents Educating Parents (PEP)

​We'd like to warmly introduce you to our parent volunteers

Nadia Mihai, Alida Preotescu, Amel Belhadj, Lidia Botosan and Nadia Sakhi

 

Our PEP parents are an integral part of the school and provide support to our community of parents, especially for those where English is not the first language. We currently have five PEP parents who between them can speak: Arabic, French, Romanian, Pashto, Dari, Urdu and Hindi.

These parents are volunteers who have committed to supporting the school on a regular basis. Over the coming months they will: plan and deliver workshops, provide home language support where necessary to our parents and children, update the parent board in the playground and update the PEP section on the school website.

Please feel free to speak to any of our volunteers to find out more about the work they do and feel free to approach them if you need support. They can be clearly identified by their ‘purple volunteer lanyards’.

A message from our parent volunteers

We are part of PEP (Parents Educating Parents), a group of five parents from different communities (Romanian, Arabic and Afghani). We are volunteers who try to be a link between parents and the school.

We will support Camrose to deliver workshops that will be beneficial for parents and their children.

If you need help you can always approach us in the playground. We are easily recognised as we will be wearing volunteer lanyards and we are always happy to help.

 

healthy lunchbox workshop

On the 19th May 2022 the PEP parents held their first workshop - a Healthy Lunchbox Workshop for Reception parents. This is what they had to say: 

"It was an exciting experience for parents and children to find out new ways of cooking healthy food together. They enjoyed doing the activities with their children and seeing the reaction of the children when tasting the new healthy options. We were very happy to see that a lot of parents attended the workshop.

The yummy fruit kebabs were devoured and enjoyed by the children!

At the end of the workshop the parents were given a recipe booklet, and they said they would definitely try them."
