Christmas afternoon tea for local senior citizensBack to News
The Deepings School welcomed 45 local senior citizens to a lovely Christmas afternoon tea, provided by the school's excellent catering team.
Guests were greeted and served by some of our superb Year 9 and Sixth Form students who helped out during the afternoon, taking orders for tea and coffee and managing the raffle.
The talented food tech team and their students also created a selection of colourful miniature Christmas cakes to give away in the free raffle and the afternoon finished with the traditional game of Bingo, professionally ‘called’ by Sixth Form student Ben Pateman.
Representing Age Concern, Betty Fenech expressed thanks on behalf of the guests and said how much they had all enjoyed the food and activities.
Mrs Taylor, who coordinated the event said: “It was lovely to see some familiar faces and to welcome some new senior citizens to our school to enjoy the start of our Christmas festivities. The event also provided an opportunity for Headteacher Richard Lord to chat with the local residents and for us to wish everyone a very happy Christmas and New Year. Thank you to all students and staff who helped make the event such a success”
