OAP tea party is a success!

October 3, 2014 in Front Page News, Welsh Bacclaureate by Miss L Hocken

Roll over Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry.

Year 13 Welsh Bacc students played host to the elderly residents of Duffryn, Maesglas and the Gaer last week. The students organised and planned a tea party which involved preparing delicious cakes, biscuits and sandwiches to be served to their guests. The entertainment was provided by the talented members of the year group who played the piano and trumpet and sang to their guests. By far the most enjoyable part of the evening was the way that the age barriers crumbled within minutes of the elderly people arriving.

Sama ElHreich said ‘It was delightful to spend time with the elderly people. I enjoyed chatting to and getting to know them. It was amazing how much we all had in common’.
