Dear Principal Wong,
I would like to thank you for inspiring us and setting a good example for all of us at North Point Methodist Primary School. When I think of you, I always think of your warm smile and your kind voice greeting the students at the school gate every morning.
I still remember my first day in Primary One at North Point Methodist Primary School. I was so worried and afraid that the teachers and the Principal were severe and strict. But when I arrived at school, I was greeted by you at the gate. That time I was too shy to greet you back, so I walked past you and entered the gate without looking at you. However, after a while, I got to know you better and greeted you back. You never seem to get angry, and you are always so kind to me – it made me feel much better. My mom told me it was also your first year at NPMPS, which made me happy because I knew we were both new to the school.
I am now in Primary Five, and I always enjoy going to school. You have given us a positive environment to study, play, and grow in. I love all the teachers and my friends at school, and I will continue to work harder not to disappoint you.
When I graduate from college, I will become someone who will make a positive contribution to our society. I will tell the world which school I graduated from, and who my Principal and teachers were.
I wish you good health and happiness.
Dear Mr Poon,
I am writing this letter to you because I feel thankful that you teach me, help me, and care about me. On the 60th Anniversary of NPMPS, you made the school a special place for students like me. The last time I was in your lesson, I kept talking to my friend. But when it was recess, you kindly spoke to me and asked if I am willing to change my seat so that I could sit closer to you. In the second Maths lesson, I sat next to you, and that helped me to concentrate better.
Mr Poon, you showed me that you care about me and that you want to help me, which is why the students feel a sense of belonging at NPMPS as a caring place for us to study at. You and all the teachers put in a lot of effort to make sure we are happy and feel comfortable during lesson time. I am grateful to have a teacher like you. I am thankful that when I am unable to answer a math question, you patiently explain the answer to me.
I like it when you handout stamps when I am doing well, this makes me happy. Mr Poon, thank you for all your help. I will be a good student in every lesson, and I will help you sometimes too. I hope you can teach my brother and sister when they get bigger and come to our school.
Dear Mr Barnardo,
I am writing to you to thank you for being such a fantastic teacher. Every time I met you, you greeted me with kind words and with a smile on your face. That means a lot! The way you speak makes learning much more fun!
When it was time to do our speaking assessment, we said the words we wrote down on our papers. We had to speak clearly and pronounce our words accurately with the correct volume and intonation. However, some of our classmates were scared of speaking in front of the class. You made use of hand gestures to guide us and gave us the support we needed. Some of our classmates were shy; they spoke less, whereas others spoke in a timid voice that I could barely hear them. However, you still encouraged them and appreciated their efforts.
You are a very special teacher. Your appreciation for growing and making room for mistakes along the way influenced me a lot. I want to learn from you and express my thankfulness towards you. I am grateful to have you as a role model.
Thank you for the time you put aside for my track-and-field training in the first school term. Every Wednesday and Friday after school, you teach me about sprint and long jump. You also share with me the importance of warm up before exercising. If my running posture is imperfect, you will correct me and show me how to do better. Every time I finished training, I was very tired but happy.
During the first school term, you encouraged us to participate in some competitions. You led our team to win some medals too. You guided us to cooperate in our relay race and helped us to find our partners.
You showed me how fun it is to do sports and I have passion about sports now. To express my thankfulness, I will practice hard and always remember to warm up.
