Staff at Rackham Primary School in Witchford were asked by their headteacher to spread some hope and positivity to the pupil and parent community this weekend.
Headteacher, Bridget Harrison said, “I have seen lots of brilliant videos made by teaching staff in other schools over the past few weeks and so sooner or later it was a certainty that Rackham would make one! We have enjoyed sharing fun videos with our pupils in the past and they have been well-received. I have written to our pupils and their parents/carers over the past four weeks on a number of occasions and I decided it was the right time for us to share a message collectively and using technology. It didn’t take much persuading for the fantastic staff at Rackham to become involved.”
The video is being shared with pupils and the Witchford community on Saturday 10th April in the hope that it will bring a smile to their faces this Easter bank Holiday.
“It was so much fun to make,” said Mrs. Harrison. “Our staff were given a few simple instructions before sending me their videos via WhatsApp. I feel as honoured as ever to be headteacher at such a brilliant school with an incredible team behind me. The staff really took to the challenge with passion.
We all miss each other dearly and we know that families are finding things hard so we were very keen to share a positive message of hope to our pupils and the wider community. Stay strong Rackham. Remember the rainbow of hope when you feel sad. We all love you and can’t wait to see you again soon.”
