Local primary school thank staff at the Tessa Jowell Health Centre

Home / Local primary school thank staff at the Tessa Jowell Health Centre

The Tessa Jowell Health Centre in East Dulwich recently received a special visit from pupils of nearby Goose Green Primary School.

The Year 2 pupils have been learning about superheroes, and what makes a hero, and decided, with the support from teachers, that those who work within the NHS are true heroes, and even more so since the pandemic.

As a gesture of thanks and appreciation, the class sang songs, read poetry they had written and handed out tissue flowers they had made to the staff at the health centre.

The request initially came from their teacher Charlotte Rolls, who worked with Community Health Partnerships (CHP) Tenant Liaison Manager Sharon Linton who supported in planning the day and made sure staff were on site to see the performance.

The staff were blown away by the gesture, and the talented pupils, who also incorporated sign language into their song.

Sharon Linton, CHP’s Tenant Liaison Manager said:

“When I received the request from Goose Green Primary School, I was more than happy to support the visit. We recently celebrated the one-year anniversary at the Tessa Jowell Health Centre, which was opened during the height of the first lockdown. The staff have all been working hard, so to receive this visit along with a performance was a special treat”
