On Friday 13 December All Saints RC School Year 9 RE and Leadership students welcomed guests from local parishes to the first ‘Senior Citizens Christmas Party’. This took place in the afternoon and the guests commented that the student’s enthusiasm, organisation and friendliness were outstanding.
The honoured guests were treated to a festive buffet prepared by the students and were entertained by the school choir who sang a range of carols beautifully. The orchestra played, there was a guest appearance by ‘Father Christmas’ and exciting games of bingo were held.
The event was a great success and hugely enjoyed by all those who attended. It is an occasion that All Saints will definitely be repeating.
Since the party several of the guests have written to the school to pass on their appreciation and have commented as follows:-
“The ladies who attended from St Paulinus had a great time and were full of praise for all the organisation and hard work and especially for the polite and caring attitude of the children”
“The school orchestra, choir and individual singers and performers are a credit to the school and to their teachers”
“A wonderful start to the Christmas season”
