Neston Head Teacher Uses Snail Mail to Say Bee Safe
|Published: 22nd April 2020 07:17|
Rob Golding, Headteacher at Neston Primary School, made all of the pupils a promise when the lockdown started. He promised the children that he and the staff would stay in touch.
The school has used Facebook and Twitter to keep in touch and to set and share home learning. Staff have also rung parents and pupils every week to see how they are doing, say hello and to ask if they needed any support.
But that's not all...
Rob said: "We have remained open for the children of key workers. When I have not been in school, I have spent my time drawing and writing. I have decorated nearly 200 envelopes and hand-written a similar number of postcards. I wanted to use more traditional methods to stay in touch and knew that the children would like to receive a card in the post."
The school's mascot is a bee, so the envelopes are covered with bees and the slogan "bee safe."
Children have now started to post pictures of themselves on the school's Facebook page as they receive their postcards. All of the children have been delighted with the bright and colourful mail.
Rob added: "I would like to thank Royal Mail workers in the CH64 area for delivering the postcards and spreading the message to 'Bee Safe, Stay Safe and Stay at Home."
