Caring at Christmas

13/01/21Caring at Christmas


2020 has been a tremendously tough year for many people in many ways, but particularly for the elderly. Many people living in care homes have not only lost many dear friends and some have been ill themselves, but they have really missed visits from their loved ones. For many this is the highlight of their lives.

Our amazing and compassionate pupils decided to bless the elderly, with beautiful hand-made Christmas cards, each one written with encouraging words or poetry. To make this fun, we made it into a school Christmas Card competition, and as a result we were able to deliver almost 300 cards to the elderly this Christmas. Really well done to Mia W. who won a beautiful art set for her winning design, depicting young people Skyping their grandparents by the Christmas tree.

Thank you to everyone who took part and helped to bring joy to others this Christmas.
