Report by Emlyn Schiavone, Time after Time Project Manager
The Newbridge Goldies were accompanied by session leader Carol Pegler to Blackwood Primary School. They were warmly welcomed by Head teacher Mrs. Madoc Thomas, Link Teacher Kirsten Shuker and other teaching and support staff.
The session commenced with a video presentation of the various school activities.
This was followed by enthusiastic singing from Year 5 and 6 pupils, staff and the Goldies. Favourites included Jeff Beck's Hi Ho Silver Lining, Petula Clark's Sailor and the Beatles Twist and Shout.
As the afternoon progressed the atmosphere was vibrant to the sound of singing and dancing.
The Goldies were treated to some refreshments as the pupils circulated with trophies illustrating their numerous sporting achievements.
The Head teacher thanked the Goldies and pupils for their lively contribution.
Session leader Carol thanked the pupils and staff for a fantastic afternoon.
Some of the pupils accompanied the Goldies outdoors and were full of pride as they showed their garden allotment and chickens.
The school requested another event during the Autumn Term.
One ofr the Goldies commented as she boarded the bus -
"I can't wait for a return visit after the summer holiday."
