Report by Emlyn Schiavone, Project Manager    

The Head teacher, Mr. Tim Williams, welcomed the older persons and the pupils to the event. He thanked the Youth Worked and link teacher for making the arrangements. He was pleased to host an innovative inter generational project.

 The group of older persons reside at a local facility providing supported accommodation.

The pupils and older persons sang with great enthusiasm. Some of them took to the floor to dance along to the upbeat music.

The pupils and older persons enjoyed a buffet lunch together. They shared experiences and discussed their plans and ambitions.
