Bang For Your Buck (or $1.10 to be more precise)
The crisis in the teaching profession has been well publicised. Retaining and attracting staff is obviously paramount. It’s more important than ever to appreciate all of the staff who work in our schools. Last year 43,000 staff in schools across Australia and New Zealand received a handwritten postcard of appreciation from a leader in their school. I know leaders are busy and also under-appreciated however, taking the time to hand write the postcards and the investment of $1.10 to post them to the staff members is ABSOLUTELY worth it. The IMPACT of staff members receiving the postcard at their home address is TEN TIMES GREATER than receiving it in the pigeonhole at school.
I’d highly recommend asking office staff to generate the sticky address labels including the staff member’s postal address and sharing the load with other leaders in your school. I promise you it will have a great impact and be worth the additional effort. Order your postcards for World Teachers’ Day (celebrated in Australia and NZ on Friday, October 28, 2022).
They are FREE and only available to Happy School members.
