Do something nice on World Teacher Day

04.10.2021

This Tuesday 5th October marks two very special days – ‘Do Something Nice Day’ and ‘World Teacher Day’. Here at Sky Park Farm we think the two days go hand in hand!

For the past two years, teachers around the world have gone to extraordinary levels in the most challenging of circumstances to deliver some continuity of education throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Becky Harris, our Operations Manager, dedicated the early part of her career to teaching at Primary level, said: 

“Teaching is the most rewarding career – children are incredible and I loved seeing them develop. At primary level we focussed a lot on manners and the importance of saying thank you. As a teacher, it’s really heart warming when children do something kind, out of the blue, or say thank you.” 

Expressing thanks is also good for our health and happiness – not only does it feel good but also helps us build trust and closer bonds with the people around us.

So, bring some joy into the world, do something nice and thank your teacher on World Teacher Day! Here are our top 5 suggestions to spread a little joy to your teachers — and yourself.

  • Write a note
  • Draw a picture
  • Craft a present 
  • Bake some cookies
  • Give a thoughtful gift  – scented candle, some gorgeous hand wash or maybe a lovely mug for a special cup of coffee.

Sky Park Farm is six days a week, 9am to 5pm, Tuesday to Sunday. Annual membership continues to be available – paying for itself in just three visits.  With The Grazing Rooms cafe, Farm Shop and Butcher opening soon, Sky Park Farm has something for everyone.
