Senior Citizens Christmas Party 2011

On the 8th of December, Year 11 pupils hosted a Christmas party for senior citizens of our local community. The challenge to raise funds for the event was put to Year 11 pupils in September by Mr Moran. Representatives were appointed from each form and fundraising activities were very successful in raising over £700. The event was a great success and many of the residents of our community spoke of how they had enjoyed themselves, how wonderfully welcoming, friendly and helpful the pupils were and how they had seen for themselves that the majority of young people care a great deal about the world and communities around them. Mr Moran was very proud of the pupils involved as they showed they were ambassadors for their generation and the kindness, respect and empathy they showed made a massive impression on the people they entertained and gave their time to so selflessly.
