FATHER’S DAY SPECIAL FEATURE
School/Pupil Briefing Sheet
We are very keen to ensure that all messages appear just as they are written, full of love and character, depicting the individual character of every pupil.
To ensure this we need each school to follow very simple but definite guidelines please:
Ensure all messages from your school are submitted in one Word document. We will print all messages as they are sent to us and will not change or correct any message to ensure that it is all the child’s own work - we know that our readers love children’s grammar of all ages!
Each message needs to follow the same format:
The surname and then first name of the message’s recipient.
Then the child’s message; 25 words maximum please.
Finally, who the message is from.
Wording can be upper or lowercase.
No emojis please as these cannot be printed in paper.
EXAMPLE: Smith, John – Daddy I love you, Happy Father’s Day! Love from Samantha x
Please note: If the parent or guardian does not wish to have their name in paper, you can write the message but leave the name off, or simply put Daddy, Grandad, Uncle, etc.
Once you have collated all the pupils messages please send one Word document to STARschools@archant.co.uk
with the following information in the subject line: SCHOOL/CLASS NAME (if appropriate). For example: HOLBROOK PRIMARY ‘Woodpecker Class’.
Deadline for messages to reach us is close of business Friday 28th May 2021.
Finally, thank you again for your participation in this campaign, we are sure the Dads will be delighted with their surprise messages!
