COVID-19 has been tough for a lot of people, especially those working in hospitals.
You can imagine the pleasant surprise felt by the nurses at Goulburn Base Hospital when they received letters from students at Goulburn East Public School.
Student Jacob Doggett said their teacher Sue Roberts spoke about the dangerous nature of the nurses' work.
"We wanted to write letters to the nurses thanking them for their work," Jacob said.
"She told us they were putting their lives at risk."
Ms Roberts has an understanding of the tough environment and pressure the front line health care workers have gone through as she has family who works in the health system.
Goulburn Base Hospital's acting director of nursing and midwifery Cheryl Tozer said this was a lovely thing for the students to do.

A total of 47 letters were written.
