Students support care home

Posted onPosted on 2nd Jan

Pupils from The Garibaldi School, Forest Town – which is part of the Nova Education Trust – visited a care home ahead of the festive period to deliver some beautiful Christmas decorations.

Year Seven students Sam Lewing, Emilie Richardson, Emily Armishaw, Evie Marshall, Lily Evans, Kacie Saunders and Alissia Parker went to Parkside Care Home, Forest Town, accompanied by assistant head teacher Melissa Stevenson and activity organiser Mrs Hill, to deliver decorations that a large number of students and staff contributed to making over the past couple of months during their lunchbreak.

Melissa said: “We received such a warm welcome from staff and residents – and our students did us proud.

“They interacted with the residents and hung-up various pom-pom clad wreaths, stockings and stars up in communal areas for all to enjoy.

“It was a pleasure to see the school community coming together to contribute to this project and the trip was a lovely way to end the year.

“We look forward to future craft projects with the care home and I know that we have many students who are keen to reach out and volunteer more of their time.”
