On Wednesday 4 December we opened our doors to host the annual Senior Citizens Christmas Party. Approximately 70 visitors attended the event from various elderly care homes, church groups and charity organisations from the local area. Every year this event is organised and run by our Year 13 Level 3 Sports Leaders.
The entertainment included a quiz, bingo and carol singing. The guests were also served food and drinks by our students.
Thank you to Valerie Pope who, every year, helps to run activities on the day. A huge thank you also to our amazing students who not only organised the party, helped to make sure that the visitors arrive safely at our school, but have also been volunteering their time to help organise activities for the elderly preceding this event.
We received a card thanking all staff and students at Kingsbury High School from one of our guests:
‘It is very considerate to think of the elderly at this time of the year, especially as so many of us live alone.
The invitation to join you today is very much appreciated.
Sincere thanks to you all, and best wishes for Christmas and the New Year.’
