Sixth Formers Enjoy Zoom Bingo With Cubbington Mill
On Thursday 1 October Sixth Form students from Princethorpe College challenged the residents at Barchester Healthcare’s Cubbington Mill Care Home to a game of bingo.
The Care Home is one of a number that students traditionally visit as part of their Sixth Form enrichment opportunities and the Zoom Bingo challenge was a great way for the Sixth Formers and residents to stay in touch.
It was a very competitive two rounds of Bingo, with Upper Sixth Former, James Walker, calling the numbers out in Round 1 and Cubbington’s Activities Co-ordinator, Hannah Fawcett, doing the honours in Round 2. Cubbington claimed victory and the College Sixth Formers have organised a box of Heroes and a card to be sent to the winners.
The Sixth Form students all wore silly hats which made the residents laugh and in return Cubbington Mill’s very own Shakespeare and resident ambassador Gerald wrote a poem for the occasion.
Hannah Fawcett, said “The residents had great fun and a big thank you to all the pupils who made us laugh with their silly hats. We can’t wait to see you again. This has been a brilliant way for our residents to keep their connections and sense of community with the school.”
Assistant Head of Sixth Form, Rod Isaacs commented, “It was great fun and wonderful to see the old and the young just enjoying the moment. We are looking forward to a rematch soon.”
