For teachers and many of their pupils this is a hard time, trying to keep pupils motivated to learn, supporting those who were due to take exams/ leave school/ hopefully move on to college or work/ make choices for next year’s subjects – and for staff adjusting to remote teaching. Some are also in school working with children of ‘key workers’ or from vulnerable families.
Lord we pray for teachers, pupils and parents/guardians coping with the current situation, with the uncertainty, disappointment and worry. As the official ‘school holidays’ approach we pray that staff in particular may have time to relax and ‘recharge the batteries’. May they know that we appreciate all that they are doing. Amen
