A post to just say thank you. Thank you to you guys, for being not just a wonderful and amazing class, but also making my first year so far at Broad Heath so memorable. This message is very bittersweet. Whilst I am happy you are all safe and sound, it pains me that I do not know when I may see some of you again. With the current situation at hand, we have not had the chance to create further fun moments and memories that we can all cherish. I wanted to be a role model for many of you and sad that it has been cut short. We have enjoyed being your teachers and supporting you every step in the way helping you all to progress in your learning. Each and everyone of you have made us smile, laugh and I just want you know that I am very proud of you all. You have all made fantastic progress, whether that be academically, socially, physically or just growing in maturity to face whatever task comes your way!
This is a scenario that is not just new to me, or you, but also for the entire world. I never thought we would get to this stage, but unfortunately it has happened. I just want to urge you all to remain calm and show that maturity that you have developed to approach your days in the right manner. Use your time wisely; spend time with your family and have fun! Remember, just because you are not at school does not mean you cannot learn anything new at home. We live in a world where every skill can be now learnt at the touch of a button. Do not see this as a setback, but think positively about what you can achieve, your mindset is everything. Attitude + Effort = Success!
Even though you are not in school, myself, Mr Mashford and Mrs Cochrane will be posting one blog every day, relating to Maths, English, Science, Topic etc on the blog. You need to complete all of these, not just the one’s posted by me. Remember we are a team and a school community and everyone is trying to help each other. This is to be completed in your homework book, or on the blog. Do stay in touch and tell us how you got on and I, or another adult can comment to provide support and help! But most importantly, do not complete this work for me, for Mrs Khan, or for Broad Heath, do it for you! You guys need the skills and have done so well this year, I would not want a situation like we currently have to hinder your learning and development. I want you to have the best chance and not let something like this bring you down!
On a final note, for the last time, look after yourselves, stay safe and I wish you all the best for the future, in education, health and life! Keep being amazing! We will both miss you dearly. Please stay in touch, if you have any concerns about anything, just want to say hello, or just want someone to talk to then comment on this blog.
Mr Janjua and Mrs Khan
