Thank You Day on Sunday 5th June

25/05/2022

Every individual across the UK has a part to play in our community but not every occasion gives us the opportunity for engagement or the possibility to host your own party!

That is why we want everyone to take part in Thank You Day on Sunday 5th June. Take a moment to think about who they would like to thank – be it the teacher that goes the extra mile, the student that always tries, the volunteer that gives their time or the parent or guardian that is always supportive!

This year is set to be a bumper year of celebrations with the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee taking place, millions of people will be taking part in Thank You Day and you’re invited!

Schools up and down the UK have already been involved in the run up to Thank You Day, making bunting, delivering school assemblies and planning  Big Jubilee Lunches. Plan your event anyway you want, big or small. Let’s get together and show our thanks to those that have helped us along the way!

The last couple of years have been difficult for everyone, the pandemic and lockdown life tested all our human instincts and schools and teachers were thrust into educating our future generations in a different way. As things have started returning to ‘normal’ there is a sense of urgency to move forward without truly reflecting on the gravity of everything that has happened in the last year. Never has it been more important than it is now to take a moment to pause, and say ‘thank you’ to everyone for their mammoth efforts.

Every day we see extraordinary efforts being made in schools across the UK that deserve recognition. Exploring different ways to thank those that  help us is an important step in building a kinder and  connected community. It’s time to celebrate and thank those that have helped us along the way.

Here are some ways you can get involved:

  1. Holding a Thank You Day event – street parties, bbq, sharing a cake or Big Jubilee Lunch  – connecting over food is so simple but so powerful!
  2. Visit the Thank You Day website to create your day and to download resources.
  3. Share your thank you –  join our Chain of Thanks, leave a message on our wall or get involved through our partners at ‘Thank a Teacher’. Don’t forget to share on social media and use the hashtag #ThankYouDay

On Sunday 5th June join millions of people across the UK to, not just say thank you to Her Majesty the Queen for her incredible 70 years of service, but also to thank each other for the incredible contribution so many people have made to make a difference for others over the last year.
