Senior Citizens Christmas Party
On Tuesday 4th December Kingsbury High School hosted the annual Senior Citizens Christmas Party which was organised and run by our Year 13 Level 3 Sports Leaders. Approximately 70 visitors attended the event from various elderly care homes, church groups and charity organisations from the local area.
The entertainment included boccia, carol singing, bingo and a quiz. There was also an opportunity for all to help crochet a blanket which will be donated to Battersea Dogs & Cats Home.
Thank you to Valerie Pope, Jenny Cox & Anne Hantouli who helped to run activities on the day. A huge thank you also to our amazing students who not only organised the party, but have also been volunteering their time to help organise activities for the elderly preceding this event.
Helen Abbott, the wellbeing manager from Birchwood Grange care home who attended the event said:
" I cannot thank you enough for a wonderful afternoon. Your staff were so thoughtful and entertaining and the students were the best I’ve met. The compassion and care they showed to our residents not only this afternoon but in our home is far more than I can describe in words. Whenever anyone says anything disparaging about teenagers I can thrust the wonders of your students at them, as I am in awe of such talented and caring students.''
