Your thank you messages to schools and teachers
PUBLISHED: 15:03 17 July 2020 | UPDATED: 15:17 17 July 2020
The end of the school year is here, but many parents and children have been left without the normal opportunity to say goodbye to the teachers who have made such a big difference.
In an extraordinary year for schools, teachers and school staff have gone above and beyond to make sure they can do their best for children in difficult circumstances. But with many pupils not back in classes, you’ve taken the opportunity to send a message to say thank you. Whether they are a key worker and staff were brilliant at putting their child at ease during lockdown, or they helped with homeschooling and reassured on the return to classes, parents and pupils wanted to say thank you.
