To the class of 2020,
Yesterday marked an abrupt end to your school or college education. At the start of the week, who could have known that it would be the last time you put on your tie, walked that daily route to college or heard the dinner bell ring at school. It wasn’t how any of us planned and it’s certainly not what we wanted for you, but I’m so very proud of the strength of character each and every one of you has shown. You’re frequently labelled the ‘snowflake generation’ by the media, but they don’t know you. They don’t know how hard you’ve worked all these years to reach your goals. None of this is fair, I know. However, be proud of who you are because you have the chance to go forward now and shape this world of ours. Yes, you are the students that future generations will read about in the history books, so hold your head up high and announce that you’re a member of THE CLASS OF 2020 and smile at how far you’ve come.
