Yesterday schools across Wales welcomed pupils back after a long break. Wrexham’s MP, Sarah Atherton, has thanked schools for their hard work during this outbreak.
“As classrooms across Wales welcome back students today, I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude for all of the hard work that teachers and support staff have put in during the coronavirus outbreak.
“I recognise that many teachers have been supporting home learning by providing online material for children whilst working from home, often competing with the challenges of looking after their own families at the same time.
“The ongoing support that staff have provided to vulnerable children and those of key workers has allowed our shops to stay stocked, our roads open, our police to protect us, and our heroic NHS workers to save as many lives as possible. This would not have happened without the support of our teachers.
“I would also like to thank schools for all of their hard work over the last few weeks in creating a safe environment so that our children can return to the classroom and receive the education they deserve.
“I know that schools across Wrexham will rise to the next set of challenges coronavirus presents us with. I am immensely appreciative of all our school’s effort during this outbreak.”
