Thursday 27th May marked National Than a Teacher Day. The initiative set up by the Teaching Awards Trust which was established in 1998 by Lord David Puttnam CBE, to celebrate and recognise excellence in education.
During the build up to the events pupils, parents and staff are invited to take part in a number of ways including competitions, thank you card and celebrity shout outs.
At Etone we know the value that teachers, assistants and support staff have on our young learners. The inspirational stories from great figures both historical and modern regarding the effect a good teacher has had on them, evidence how much of an impact we can have on their future lives.
This week we have encouraged pupils to thank their teachers either by writing one of our own Etone Thank You Cards or filling out the online Thank a Teacher Form from the organisation themselves. It has been overwhelming to see the outpouring of gratitude from our pupils with all support staff, teaching assistants and teachers receiving thank you’ s this week.
Additionally, Etone College received the third highest amounts of ‘Thank You’s’ online in the West Midlands area. Something we are extremely proud off. So we would just like to say thank you for all of your support this term and across the years and form all of us at Etone THANK YOU!
