The last few weeks have seen our Year 7 PC groups take time on Friday mornings to visit the local Glasshouse Views Aged Care and Retirement Village to spend time with the elderly residents. Year 7G and 7M have most recently visited to join in with various activities and to spend time chatting with the residents.
A few brave students in each class also shared their talents by performing various items which were clearly appreciated by all those in the audience. We are now looking forward to a special Christmas-themed visit with a smaller group of Year 7s in Week 7 to wrap up our service activity. It’s been so lovely to see the students overcome their nerves and shyness to mix and mingle with older people and engage them in conversations.
