Sixth Form Hosts Special Senior Citizens’ Christmas Lunch
On Tuesday 3 December Princethorpe College Sixth Formers welcomed over 100 guests, for a special Senior Citizen's Christmas lunch.
They included elderly parishioners from St Anne’s, Wappenbury, and residents from a number of local care homes, Greenways, Clifton Court, The Chimneys, Brandon Trust, Cubbington Mill, Galanos House, Overslade House, Helen Ley Care Centre, James Hirons, Castel Froma, Town Thorns and Willow Tree Nursing Home.
The lunch has become an annual community event where the guests are served turkey and all the trimmings, prepared by the College catering team and waited on by pupils and staff from across the College.
Sixth Former, Will Puchy, did a sterling job entertaining all with festive tunes on the keyboard and the guests were treated to a special performance by pupils from Our Lady’s Catholic Primary School, Princethorpe. Will also led the assembled guests in the now traditional joyful sing-along of much-loved traditional carols, including O Come All Ye Faithful, We Wish You A Merry Christmas and Hark The Herald Angels Sing. It was lovely to hear the communal singing.
All of the visitors were presented with a personalised Christmas card produced by pupils from Our Lady’s and by College Sixth Formers.
Assistant Head of Sixth Form, Cyp Vella commented, “It was wonderful to see old and young chatting and simply enjoying the moment together, embodying the true spirit of Christmas. It really was a lovely community event.”
