A note from our Founder, Fiona.
It’s exam season again! I remember it so well! That spring/summer sunshine comes out, it gets warmer, and you just want to spend time relaxing and seeing friends. But no! Inside revising for the dreaded exams! I used to get so worried and often made those silly mistakes but through years of tests and preparation from primary to secondary schools, I passed all my important end of school exams. I worked hard, tried hard and through practice and the teachers support and patience (!) I got there.
So now, my heart goes out to those school children who have lived through the covid times. Goodness knows how I would have coped with such disrupted years with less support, tests, preparation for exams; would I have passed?
The children I know are doing an amazing job of getting on with it. The teachers are, I imagine, feeling desperate for the implications covid and lockdown has had, and are working so hard to get our children through what may be their first ever external examinations!
It is evident that collages, schools, teachers, and teaching assistants have worked so hard at continuing education during the last few years. But, as so many have said before me, this hasn’t equalled the face-to-face support and preparation the teachers can give in class and the ‘real’ conditions required for the stressful exam process. The impact of the disruption is yet to be seen.
So, I wanted to send a huge best of luck message to all students taking exams and we hope all the stars in the universe are shining upon you guiding you on your way.
Similarly, we want to recognise and say thank you to all and every kind of teacher supporting, guiding, and caring for our children. If you’re looking for a super special way to recognise your teacher, take a look at The Little Teacher Recipe. It really is one of our best sellers as it can be really tricky finding the words to thank a special teacher.
