We all remember with affection at least one teacher from our schooldays. No matter how long ago that was or where we went to school someone still stands out for the right reasons. Teachers have such an influence on children it’s only natural we form a bond with them. Indeed how many of us have wished we could go back to thank an old teacher for the time, effort, guidance or understanding they once gave us.
For those of us who are now parents ourselves that bond between a teacher and a pupil hasn’t changed; teachers still inspire their pupils. It’s a demanding and difficult profession, looking after other people’s children should never be underestimated, and that’s before you factor in all the external pressures many teachers now face.
With this in mind we’ve created a teacher’s gift section on our new website. As we approach the end of term and the summer holidays you might be thinking of some way to express your appreciation for a teacher you or one of your children have had.
We’ve picked out some candles that we know are popular as gifts. They are inexpensive, attractive and superbly well made, they are fit to grace any room and will last all summer and beyond. A bit like a good education in fact.
