Epping Forest Youth Councillors wanted to thank their teachers and especially head teachers for their support during these uncertain times.
Encouraging headteachers to take regular breaks
They sent Youth Council mugs to schools across the Epping Forest District at the beginning of the current lockdown to try to encourage head teachers to take regular breaks in their busy programme of supporting students both in schools and through distance learning.
Support from schools
Youth councillor Aliza Zarras said:
We are all extremely grateful for every school in Epping Forest that is supporting students like us during this unpredictable and unsettling time. I especially appreciate my school – West Hatch High School – for supporting all its students into achieving their full potential. I hope that we can continue along this road of encouragement and positivity in every person’s journey of education.
Thank you to NHS staff
The Youth Councillors also sent mugs and donated their Christmas chocolates to staff at Princess Alexandra Hospital, Harlow as a token of their thanks to those working in the intensive care wards.
We hear so much on the news, and some of us through personal experience, of the hard work hospital staff are facing during the COVID-19 pandemic and we wanted to show our appreciation in a small way.
