Pupils show their caring side at Christmas
Our students and staff have done their bit to bring some seasonal cheer to care home residents after collecting and distributing gifts in the run-up to Christmas.
Our Year 11 pupils took the donations provided by the school council to residents of Terrington Lodge home in Terrington St Clements, some of whom are living with dementia and related conditions, to raise spirits at the end of a tough year that has hit the care home sector particularly hard.
Head of design and technology, Mr Falco, helped create dementia-friendly gifts and puzzles, and students donated their free time to help with wrapping and delivering the goods.
Social distancing regulations meant we could not hand over the presents in person, but we managed to smile and wave to the enthusiastic recipients through the windows.
