To all the parents, a big thanks for getting us through homeschooling. Don’t think your help has gone by unnoticed. It was lovely that even though you had your own work you always made time for us. We loved spending time with you more during this pandemic. Know how much we love you.

During this difficult time, parents have provided us with encouragement and assistance whenever they could and especially given us the necessary food to keep us healthy. For these reasons and more, as a Bethany Community, we would like to take the opportunity to recognise the commitment our parents have demonstrated towards our learning and give thanks to them.

Thank you to all our parents for always making sure that we were well-fed and had enough exercise by taking us for frequent walks, bike rides, etc. Also thank you for creating an environment that supported our learning and wellbeing and often reminding us to take breaks when we needed it.

I’d like to take the opportunity to express our endless gratitude and thanks for each and every parent as well as the parental figures within our lives, who during these challenging and unprecedented times, remained unwavering in their support and encouragement of our journey as we navigated remote learning. However, we thank you most for being there for us in more ways than one. We understand that times have been as equally difficult for you to and hope you know that we appreciate all the time and effort you’ve devoted into always putting us first. In an ever-changing world, you are a constant. Love you.

A special shoutout to every parent/guardian within the Bethany Community who have constantly been there for their children and have been their motivator. Every parent is gold-hearted and us students never really get the opportunity to really let you know how grateful we truly are for your unconditional love and support. Parents, your ongoing devotion to our wellbeing and learning never goes unnoticed, your constant encouragement and your ability to stay positive during these times is seriously something we look up to. So thank you for continuing to be yourselves even through all these situations, you’re someone we’re truly grateful for, a person who brings love and light into our lives, a caregiver and an advice giver. We wouldn’t be here without your guidance. Seriously thank you for keeping up and dealing with our mood swings from here and there, thank you for supporting us through everything and believing in us and our capabilities, thank you for protecting us from all stereotypes and for allowing us to be unique in our own ways. We love and adore you immensely, God Bless!

As a collective, we will all prosper coming out of these hard times thanks to your constant support and guidance.

Thank you parents and carers for your unwavering support and patience during this time. While we didn’t expect the year to start off as it did, your enthusiasm and motivation has made the transition much smoother and enjoyable.

A huge thank you to every parent, guardian and carer within the Bethany community.  Thank you for being with us as we transitioned into remote learning. We definitely were not expecting it, and it definitely wasn’t easy. Nevertheless, you stood by us to support us, guide us and instil strength within us. We could not be more grateful.
