If you have been lucky enough to visit Michaela, you will have experienced family lunch and appreciation. Not being in charge of my school and, therefore, not having the capacity to do something similar, I pondered over the next best thing. This is it.
Every week, students in my form are asked to write one appreciation postcard for someone has helped them, supported them, been kind to them etc. I then collect these in (for checking) and deliver them to the relevant people.
I did this for the first time today. Staff were genuinely touched and it brought a smile to the students’ faces. Wonderful.
Below are my postcard designs.
