Young and old mix in perfect harmony
THIS week marked the end of a series of outings made by schoolchildren visiting the elderly.
Year 6 girls from Maltman’s Green School, in Gerrards Cross, have been visiting two residential homes, Rock House and Mulberry Court.
Teacher Mrs Lee, said: “It has been a pure honour to escort them and witness their ability to communicate so beautifully with the residents.
“As we go in the faces light up and great fun is had by all as the girls chat to, and entertain musically, those living and working at the homes.”
As well as talking to residents the girls performed songs from musicals Oliver! and The Sound of Music.
Miss Guy, head of music, said: “It is always lovely to see how animated some of the residents are when our girls visit, and I hope the girls are aware of just how much joy and happiness they bring to the residents when they talk to them.”
