What is an Introduction Page?
An introduction page is the first inside page the pupils see when they open their school yearbooks. It’s a great way to thank them all for the memories you have also created along their journey. Not all yearbooks start with one but personally, we believe it sets the tone well.
This message is something that will stay with the class for many years to come and the words may even provide a level of comfort for the class.
We have had many schools take a different approach to their introduction page including the use of a poem, prayer, quotes from inspiring people, or shared memories of teachers.
One idea that is proving popular is a letter from the headteacher of the school or class teacher. Treat the letter as an editor would introduce a monthly magazine. Keep it sentimental, short, and sweet. Summarise the amazing final year and try to throw a good joke in there too, to set the tone for the rest of the yearbook.
Ideas for Your Introduction Page
- A letter from the headmaster/teacher
- A poem, or prayer
- An inspirational quote
- A paragraph to explain the yearbook’s purpose
It is an opportunity to share detailed memories of the class and to provide comforting words of wisdom.
The character count on our introduction page is 1,250 characters. This provides plenty of space to write a whole page dedication to the class. You will want to give the person writing this page plenty of warning to allow them enough time to get the wording right.
Adding Your Intro Page
We want to make this page simple but effective and that’s why you have two options to choose from.
Insert a catchy header, to grab your pupils’ attention. If you want a lot of text and a small image or a little less text but a big staff photo then we’ve got you covered.
