A Show of Appreciation at Prep

Truro School Prep has been celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week this week, extending the show of thanks to include all of the staff who work so hard in the school; our teachers, support staff, admin team, grounds people, caterers, cleaners, bus drivers and all the people who make our school the wonderful family environment that it is.

Friends of Truro School (FTS) have been organising donations from the parent community to provide small tokens of appreciation across the week. Treats included thank you banners, cards and hampers, celebration cakes and even a coffee van on-site providing refreshments at Thursday break time.

Any remaining funds will be put towards an end-of-year collection.

Teacher Appreciation Week is a tradition from the USA, begun after Eleanor Roosevelt convinced Congress in 1953 that a dedicated period of thanks to school staff was needed.

FTS would like to thank everyone who has contributed to the Just Giving Page and made it possible to celebrate our Truro School Prep Staff this week.

Ms Cadwallader said of the week, “I wanted to say a heartfelt thank you to every lovely parent involved in making this week so wonderful. You have truly made us feel even more blessed to have such supportive, generous parents.”
