ROTHERHAM parents, pupils, colleagues and members of the public will be showing their appreciation for teaching and classroom assistants on Friday.
As part of the trade union UNISON’s nationwide celebration day for teaching assistants, special assemblies will be held in schools in Rotherham and across Yorkshire with cakes to share with staff.
Many schoolchildren will be writing poems, designing cards and drawing portraits for their teaching assistants.
The events are all part of UNISON's campaign to speak up for the 'unsung heroes' of education, taking place across the UK.
The union is inviting people to “donate a tweet or a facebook post” to spread their message.
This event is part of UNISON's campaign to speak up for teaching assistants, following newspaper stories that some people in the government and right wing pressure groups have been looking at cutting their jobs.
