Your thank you messages to schools, teachers and children after a strange year
PUBLISHED: 12:45 01 August 2020
The end of the school year has come, but many parents and children have been left without the normal opportunity to say goodbye to the staff who have made such a big difference.
In what has been a difficult year for schools due to the coronavirus pandemic, teachers and fellow staff have gone above and beyond to do their best for children in extreme circumstances.
Many parents and pupils have taken this opportunity to send a message to say thank you – to key workers and staff brilliant at putting their child at ease during lockdown, or who helped with homeschooling and reassured them on their return to classes. And, in return, school staff wish their pupils good luck for the future.
To Miss Hunter of Ambler Primary School.
Thank you Miss Hunter for being an amazing teacher during lockdown, helping me grow and for keeping me motivated.
You are an awesome teacher and you make me smile.

To the children of Canterbury Class (Year 6) at St Andrew’s (Barnsbury) CE Primary School.
We celebrated their time at primary school with a leavers’ service held in our beautiful school grounds (at a social distance of course!). Children shared memories, what they were thankful for and their hopes for the future with our head teacher Felicity Djerehe, deputy head teacher Richard Smith, chairman of governors Lis Howell, staff, the parish clergy and family members in attendance. It was a very special morning for all and a lovely send off for our Year 6 leavers in difficult circumstances.
We wish them all the very best in the future.
To Mrs Nunn of Rise Park Academy.
Thank you for being a motivating and kind teacher to me, whether near or far.
To Year 6 at Yerbury Primary School.
It has been a pleasure and a delight to teach you. We have really enjoyed being able to create some fantastic memories with you – our week away at PGL is one that particularly stands out. Thank you for making our job so fun!
We will miss you very much but know that you are more than ready to make the move to secondary school. You are all growing up to be interesting, creative and compassionate people, and we cannot wait to hear about all of your accomplishments on this new stage of your adventure.

Good luck for September, and know that we will still be here if you ever want to pop back and say hello. We are sure you will continue to shine in secondary school, just like the stars you all are.

To Miss Gowers, and the super teachers and staff of The Gower School.
Thank you for all your dedication and perseverance during lockdown!
We really appreciate all the hard work The Gower School did to quickly switch to homeschooling lessons, and the care and reassurance our children have received over the last few months.
We have felt well supported by the school throughout, and are very grateful to be part of such a wonderful school community.
Wishing you a relaxing summer, look forward to being reunited with you in the autumn.

To Charlie, Kym and Ms Benis of Ambler School.
Thank you for being an incredible support from Reception to Year 6.
From Albert K
To Year 6 students at Blessed Sacrament Primary School.
Each child has brought their own uniqueness to our school.
Mathematicians, writers, poets, artists, footballers, athletes and so many more! Take these skills with you to secondary school and build on them. Each of you has the potential to make a difference in this world. You have all worked so hard on your journey through primary school, but this is only the start of your journey through life.
All of us teachers are so proud of each and every one of you. Your final days as students at Blessed Sacrament have been unique in that you have not finished primary school in the same way as those who have done before you; but the Year 6 Class of 2020 will always be remembered as the class that played their part in saving our country through a pandemic!
Best wishes from Mr Sommerville and Miss Bultitude and all staff.
To the staff of Richard Cloudesley School for children with special needs.
A big thank you to you all for all your hard work, especially Michelle Mann my lovely teacher and Clare Dorset-Phurkis for helping me fix my frames for standing at home and the physio video calls to mummy to help keep me well.
We love you all, thank you so much. Lockdown would of been a million times worse without all your support.
Lots of love Faryal Laibi (baby Fifi)
