Morasha children enjoying life in their new Finchley premises

Sacks Morasha Jewish Primary pupils moved to the school’s new premises in Stanhope Road, Finchley, on Monday.

The seven classrooms feature state-of-the-art technology and the multi-purpose school hall can accommodate assemblies, school lunches, physical education and presentations.

Governors chair Jason Marantz said: “We are deeply grateful for the hard work of all the trustees and donors who made this possible, especially Jeremy Newman, who led the building project with such diligence and attention to detail.”

Enjoying the new surroundings, seven-year-old Jonah Marks observed: “We have so much space in each classroom and the playground is huge. And now I get to be in the same building as my younger brother.”

Sacks Morasha was established as an inclusive Modern Orthodox school. Since opening its doors to its first seven pupils in 2008, the primary has operated out of temporary premises in Moss Hall Grove and Finchley Synagogue.

Now state-funded, it has 113 pupils from reception to year four and is oversubscribed for the next academic year.
