Pupils’ visit is a delight for residents
YEAR Seven pupils hand delivered some Easter eggs to residents at a care home and learnt about the war while they were there.
Three boys from Abbotsfield School in Hillingdon visited the Sweet Croft Residential Home in Hillingdon and had a chat with residents asking them what they did to celebrate Easter when they were a child. Some wonderful memories were discussed, and the boys had a chance to learn about war days.
Sam Alison, manager of Sweet Croft said: “The residents thoroughly enjoy the boys’ visits and look forward to them coming again. Resident Ann Machin who is 94 told me she thinks it was marvellous they came and delivered Easter Eggs and it bought back memories of her childhood.”
Abbotsfield School are working with their pupils to build positive relationships with the older generation and build bridges in the community. They will be holding a tea party at Sweet Croft in June to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday.
