#ThankOurChildren campaign - our children recognised


Today, Sir John Peace, the Lord-Lieutenant of Nottinghamshire is launching the #ThankOurChildren campaign, which will see every child and young person in Nottinghamshire and the City of Nottingham eligible for an award from Her Majesty The Queen’s representative.


As a Head, I have received a letter from Sir John thanking schools for their contributions at this time. Speaking of the campaign, Sir John said, “We are living through a period which is very difficult for children and young people to go outside and play with their friends, to go to parks and to do things which used to be fun. But their efforts are making a difference to so many people’s lives and I just wanted to thank every single one of them, for all that they are doing.”


In a direct message to all children and young people he has said, “I just wanted to pay tribute to you and your families for everything you’ve done in this national effort. Do not under-estimate the part you have played. I think you’re amazing and please, please continue to give us more of the same”.

We are so proud of our children for their part in our national effort and recognise the emotional upset that has been caused as a result of this crisis. We cannot wait to all be back together again at school when it is safe to do so. In the meantime, enjoy the recognition and the praise - a very, very well done!!


The awards will be sent out by the end of this week to every child at High Oakham via Parentmail - so watch out for these!
