Hats off! CedarBridge salutes essential workers

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

Schoolchildren who thanked essential workers and the Government for their work in the Covid-19 crisis through a video project did an “awesome job”, the woman who spearheaded the effort said yesterday.

Shoa Wolfe, a media teacher and the Senior 3 year head at CedarBridge Academy, added: “For them to be able to do such a project and at the same time juggle all of the assignments that they have, I was very impressed.”

Ms Wolfe said that the health pandemic was something no one had experienced before.

She added: “We wanted to ensure that there was something they could do to put a smile on someone else's face.”

Ms Wolfe was speaking after the three-minute video which featured S3 pupils from the Prospect school was posted to the school's Facebook page last Friday.

The video's opening caption said: “We appreciate all of the frontline workers and the Bermuda Government.”

It features several pupils in their school sweaters taking off their hats and passing them on to one another under the banner “Hats off to all of you!”.

Ms Wolfe said that intent of the project was two-fold — to thank workers and the Government, but also to act as a worthwhile activity to keep pupils motivated during the Covid-19 crisis.

She asked: “What better way to merge those two ideas?”

Ms Wolfe said that pupils had “jumped on board right away” after they were presented with the idea.

She added that project had helped to bring pupils together as well.

Ms Wolfe explained: “They all felt very connected when the final product came out.”

She said that several essential workers had expressed their gratitude after the video was released.

Ms Wolfe added: “They were very thankful for the message and for young people taking time out of their day to show their appreciation.”
