Senior Citizens Enjoy Summer Tea Party
Invited guests from nine local care homes and elderly members of the local parish, were welcomed into the College for a special summer tea party on Thursday 6 June.
The annual community event was this year themed to mark the 75th anniversary since D-Day. The airy atrium of the College’s Sixth Form Centre was decorated in patriotic red, white and blue and playing in the background was a medley of wartime music.
Sixth Formers served their guests a delightful selection of sandwiches, sausage rolls and tasty cakes accompanied by a choice of drinks. Everyone enjoyed the chance to linger over lunch and to chat to the younger generation. All around was the sound of friendly chatter and the clink of china cups. It was a lovely opportunity to share stories, find out about school life, enjoy a change of scenery and savour some top class refreshments.
The event is a great example of Princethorpe’s ‘spirit of family’ and is one of a series of community events the College’s Sixth Formers support.
Our thanks go to Mrs McKenzie for organising the party; the new prefect body and Sixth Form volunteers for generously hosting our guests, Will Puchy for organising the wartime medley and to our fantastic catering team for the fabulous spread of food.
