Thank You Teachers

Dear Mr Pringle and staff,

The current circumstances we live in are unknown to us all and they bring a lot of uncertainties and new challenges with them.

For this reason, we would like to express our gratitude to you on behalf of all the learners at Union High School for all that you and your team have done so far for us on and off-campus as well as for the kind and supportive messages you have sent to us all.

Even though some of us are still at home, life on campus has continued as much as possible given the circumstances. We think that it has created an even bigger feeling of community-building. That one feeling that the Union campus is known for.

We realise how much extra work it must have been for the academic staff to change the curriculum to an online format during lockdown and how much extra effort it is now, to have to do on-site teaching while offering online educational support.

To all organisational staff, we know that a big part of the school’s success is your efforts with coordination and support. For that reason, we would like to thank you and everyone else who have been involved in the preparation and continuation of the academic programme and for getting the school ready to receive learners.

Finally, we hope that this crisis will somehow be resolved in the near future and that those who have returned home will be able to return to Union soon to finish the year all together. And that if anything, we will all be able to learn something from this crisis.

Thanks again for everything, and if there is anything that we can do to help, please let us know.

With kind regards and best wishes,
