Our Hospital, Our StoriesSmall-town school sends a kind thank you to the Royal Alex's frontline healthcare workers

Posted on: Apr 26, 2022

Students and educators at Robina Baker Elementary School in Devon, Alberta, chose to thank the Royal Alex's frontline workers for all their hard work with homemade thank-you cards and Tim Horton’s gift cards.

There’s no denying the last few years have been hard on our hospital and on our frontline staff.

Thanks to the thoughtfulness of students and educators at Robina Baker Elementary School in Devon, Alberta, a small town just outside the city limits, frontline healthcare workers at the Royal Alex were treated to homemade thank-you cards and a Tim Horton’s gift card for all their hard work.

“We chose this project to show kids it’s not difficult to say thank you, and that saying thank you can be joyful. A project like this helps us think beyond the four walls of our school.” - Kathy Kloschinsky, principal of Robina Baker Elementary School 

“Every year we do a kindness project,” said Kloschinsky. “This year we chose nurses and frontline staff. We wanted to show our gratitude for how hard all of you work and show how thankful we are for all you do.”

The cards were all handmade and contained sweet messages of thanks, as well as a $5 gift card to Tim Hortons. This is proof that every gesture, no matter how small, makes a difference.

Thank you so much to everyone at Robina Baker Elementary school for thinking of our frontline staff at the Royal Alex—they loved the cards and coffee!
