Children thank key workersPosted: 14th April 2020
Children who are attending school to allow their key worker parents to continue working during the Coronavirus outbreak have produced special messages of thanks.
Year 7 students who are attending Sir Frederick Gibberd College while their parents work in the hospital, for the police or in the supermarkets are completing a creative task each day.
Among the projects was a video message to their parents, thanking them for what they are doing, thank you cards to key workers and rainbow posters with positive messages.
Student Connor Muffett said: “My mum took the NHS card to her work in the doctor’s surgery and it made some of her colleagues cry.”
Headteacher Dee Conlon said: “Some people – their parents, teachers and they themselves – are having to make sacrifices for the greater good. These are unprecedented times and we must do our bit. We are all in this together.
“We are also reminding our students not to focus on just the negatives, but to remember there is a lot of good in the world. The projects we do each day help to enforce this message.
“These are really important lessons for our children to learn in life.”
