Se­nior cit­i­zens visit school for a fes­tive cel­e­bra­tion to re­mem­ber

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

Che­sham Gram­mar School in White Hill, Che­sham, held its an­nual Se­nior Cit­i­zens’ Christ­mas Party on Satur­day, De­cem­ber 12.

The party was or­gan­ised by school of­fice staff Rachel Bail­lie, Karen McKen­zie and Hazel Arm­strong.

Prepa­ra­tions for the event started at 7.30am and the guests ar­rived at 2pm for the party.

There was a great va­ri­ety of food served and the school’s sub­ject leader for food tech­nol­ogy, Sarah Rees, was busy in the kitchen with her small team of helpers.

Once the party started, staff had help from pupils of all ages and many mem­bers of staff. Some sat and chat­ted to the guests, oth­ers served food and drinks and sev­eral pro­vided en­ter­tain­ment.

The af­ter­noon fin­ished with communal car­olsing­ing and a raf­fle and ev­ery­one re­ceived a prize – all do­nated by the school’s par­ents.

As the guests left for home they were given an­other gift, again do­nated by the school’s par­ents, and an in­di­vid­ual Christ­mas cake.

One of the school’s new as­sis­tant head teach­ers, Tim Pat­te­son, said: “As a new mem­ber of staff, it was fan­tas­tic to see the school and com­mu­nity come to­gether to pro­vide a very mem­o­rable af­ter­noon for all in­volved. From speak­ing with a num­ber of at­ten­dees, it was clear that this was a real high­light of their year and it is an event that the school, quite rightly, can be ex­tremely proud of.”
